08/29/2004: We'll get this back up to the top o'the blog....
This was originally a Friday morning post:
Random bites from Air America news:
- According to an NY Times interview, Bush finally admits a mistake. WTF????? I'll have to go look for that pronto...UPDATE: Jeralyn Merritt at TalkLeft is on top of the story. And if you want the story from a respected source, here's the Reuters story.
- 10 or so "Nobel economics laureates" (don't get me started on how the economics Nobel isn't a real Nobel) have endorsed John Kerry, basically saying that if we get four more years of Bushonomics the economy's going to be shit....UPDATE: Here's a reference to the MSNBC story reporting the endorsement. And, in case you're curious, here's the list of endorsers:
George Akerlof and Daniel McFadden of the University of California at Berkeley, Kenneth Arrow and William Sharpe of Stanford University, Daniel Kahneman of Princeton University, Lawrence Klein of the University of Pennsylvania, Douglass North of Washington University, Paul Samuelson and Robert Solow of MIT and Joseph Stiglitz of Columbia University.I don't pay close attention to the economics profession, so I can't swear to this, but I don't think that all of these economists can be accused of being flaming liberals.
- And Kerry's finally hitting back at Bush on the "flip-flop" issue, pointing out that Bush has quite a few "changes of mind" on his record as well. (hint to the campaign: take those economic laureate endorsements, and a piece of advice from Bill "Big Dog" Clinton: "It's the economy, stupid!!!" Well, maybe the economy and Iraq, too. But definitely the economy, ok? There's a whole buttload of us mere schmoes who are terrified of what's going to happen if we lose our jobs under four more years of Bushonomics....)
