In trying to show the absurdity of claiming that White House economic adviser Gene Sperling threatened Bob Woodward, Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo notes that Sperling is “as diminutive as he is nerdy.”

Ouch!

How short is this poor guy exactly?  Are we talking Robert Reich, are we talking “follow the yellow brick road”?
