Obama and Geithner need to stop having 50th birthdays.

According to reports today, it's Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's 50th birthday. 'Happy B-Day, Tim!' we'd write on his Facebook wall, along with about 150 other friends.

Now go away.

Along with President Barack Obama, Tim's milestone brings within tumultuous markets and fire and brimstone and locusts. The Dow closed down 419 points today, or 3.68 percent. The number was shy of the 512.76 ,or 4.31 percent, drop on August 4th...Obama's birthday.

Now, just so we can prepare, when's Bernanke's birthday?
