Obama Channels 'W.' on Daily Show

Giving props to top economic advisor and Treasury Secretary, Lawrence Summers, Pres. Barack Obama, appearing on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with John Stewart" conjured memories of George W. Bush, whose comments on camera during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina included a pat on the back for then FEMA director, Michael D. Brown followed by the now-notorious compliment: "You're doin' a heck of a job, Brownie."

That, of course, led to a nickname that will stick with Mr. Brown for the rest of his life. From Nantucket, to Nome, he's still referred to as Heck-of-a-job-Brownie--the tragic irony being that he was waxing conceitedly about his telegenic looks while elderly women died in the streets of New Orleans.

Shall we now call Larry Summers, Heck-of-a-job-Summy?
