Brad DeLong, I just don’t get him

For some reason, his rss feed has been broken so I haven’t been able to keep track of his weblog. Brad’s a Berkeley professor, he served in the Clinton White House and he often gets on my nerves. As a matter of fact, I wish I had a filter that would remove everything but economics from his blog… That said, it was fun watching him defend Bill Bennett, who Brad describes as a “hypocrite, a loathsome fungus on the tree of American politics, a man who has worked unceasingly to make America a worse place.” And then it was this parenthetical at the bottom of his post that put me on the floor.

(And, while we’re at it: never get involved in a land war in Asia; do not read My Pet Goat when death is on the line; never play poker with a man named ‘Doc’; never accept a battle of wits where iocane powder is a factor; never blithely download and install a file from Microsoft without carefully, carefully researching what it will do beforehand; never get involved in an argument over Noam Chomsky; and never post about human genetics on you weblog.)
