Guess what, Bush may have better economists than Obama. Plus, other fun stuff from around the web.

By + More

1) Greg Mankiw reveals the academic rankings of the Bush economists vs. the Obama economists. Shocker,  Austan Goolsbee is just #653 (with a bullet I am sure)? Don't the rankings count snappy talk-show patter?

2) Stan Collender (Capital Gains and Games) makes a great point about a Big 3 bailout. We didn't want to spend money on their cars, why  would we want to spend money on the companies that make the cars we don't want. (Full disclosure: The only new cars I have ever purchased have been Fords. Never a problem, my union brothers.)

3) Free Market Politics has a string of outstanding posts. I can't pick just one!
