If Geithner's the Lone Ranger, Where's Tonto?

Kindred over at IPE@UNC uncovered startling online evidence that Treasury Secretary Geithner may truly be a one-man show. It reminds me of a somewhat offensive joke about the Lone Ranger and sex education, although this one is more appropriate:
The Lone Ranger and Tonto find themselves in very big trouble. 100 Indians to the north, 75 to the east, 200 to the south and 400 to the west. The Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and says: "What do you think we should do Tonto?"

Tonto replies: "What you mean we white man?"

Geithner's is truly a thankless task. The stakes are pretty high if you screw up, to say the least. Just a few days ago, I said in jest that he'd be pricing women's pantyhose in the near future given the US government's continuing usurpation of the private sector's previous remit. Given his expanding portfolio, he could use some warm bodies real soon.
