by the Sandwichman,
I tracked a backlink back to Mark Thoma's blog and there the preceding item, "I am Not Paid Enough to Deal with This Lying Bullshit," quoting Brad DeLong, caught my attention. In the quoted post, Professor DeLong stated:
I trot over to the J-School TV studio as part of the sober, sensible, bipartisan consensus, intending to carry water for Ben Bernanke and Hank Paulson.
Can someone explain to the Sandwichman how "carrying water" as part of the "sober, sensible bipartisan consensus" differs from "dealing with this lying bullshit"?
