Short Takes

“Hiccup” — Treasury Secretary nominee Timothy Geithner has tax and housekeeper issues, but it shouldn’t interfere with his confirmation, according to those who know.

Love Fest — Hillary Clinton charmed the Senate at her confirmation hearing.

Arrogant Jerk — Bradly Schlozman, a Bush appointee who supervised civil rights and voting rights lawyers, saw the Justice Department as his own little He-Men Liberal-Hating Club.

Safe Online? — “The Internet may not be such a dangerous place for children after all.”

Joe the Goebbels — More bon mots from the plumber with a microphone, including “the military should decide what information to give the media.”

Not Cold Enough? — It may be -13F in the Midwest, but hotels in Florida are still not seeing the snowbirds.
