Protest songs of 2009: Treasury Secretary Geithner dissed in verse praising Krugman


Whether you love him or hate him, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is getting dissed in a popular YouTube video that is making the rounds. It was written and sung by Jonathan Mann. It praises New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, who won the Nobel Prize in Economics last year.

Here's the video.

The lyrics are a kick:

"Hey Paul Krugman,
Why aren't you in the administration?
Is there some kind of politicking that I don't understand?
I mean, Timothy Geithner is like some little weasel.
Wasn't he in a position of power
when all this sh*t went down in the first place?

When I listen to you, things seem to make sense
When I listen to him, all I hear is blah, blah, blah."

Mann has his own Web site where he's writing a song a day. Some of the recent ones are about the economy and are a lot of fun.
