Josh Barro: Niall Ferguson is an idiot; Michelle Nunn edition...

Brad Delong sends us to Josh Barro who notes that Niall Ferguson does massive damage to our political debate with his nonsense and therefore deserves scorn.
In the process of criticizing me, Ferguson writes: "If you are defending someone against a charge of incivility…" I'm going to stop him right there. I'm not defending anybody against a charge of incivility…. The reason Ferguson wants to talk about civility is that he can't talk about not being full of crap. Ferguson… write[s] popular articles that contain misleading and false claims… causes readers to come away with a worse understanding of the economy than they entered with. He is changing the world for the worse. My contention is not that we haven't been uncivil to Ferguson. We definitely have. My contention is that he deserves it.
I argue the same about Michelle Nunn. Who is proving to be either clueless about the economy or willing to lie in order to gain power.   Neither are what we need right now from our political class.

The First Rule of of Running for US Senate--You do not side with the 1%. 

Michelle Nunn, radical ideologue for the 1%, defender of future world. 

 In which Brad Delong shows that Michelle Nunn is clueless on the deficits...
