Name Calling

Brad DeLong has my name in a list following the phrase "...ethics-free Republican hacks...".

Now there is something I never thought I'd be called..."Republican."

"Ethics-Free?" Yes. "Hack?" Yes. We are warned of those when we choose economics as a profession. But "Republican?"

Jeez, what a meanie. And for all things, expressing skepticism at a proposal that was, at that time, $1 trillion of only spending.

It is early in the year, it is only a matter of time before I am accused of being a Democrat. After all, I was called a socialist last year ;)

Update: Don Boudreaux rides to our rescue, I could not ask for anyone better.

But remember, DeLong's blog represents "A Fair, Balanced, Reality-Based, and More than Two-Handed Look at the World" -- ahem.

Just don't let dad know you're a republican.
