With the economy smelling worse than Dick Cheney's colon, you would think the people of the United States would want their next president to have a general grasp of basic economics. I'm not talking about having an MBA (apparently they give those out for free), I'm talking just some basic economic knowledge here.
Let's see what McCain has to say about his credentials:
Ok, so McCain isn't an expert on Wall Street. Big whoop. Judging from the way things are going these days most of the people who work on Wall Street aren't experts on Wall Street either.
What else do you have to say for yourself, McCain?
The issue of economics is not something I've understood as well as I should. I've got Greenspan's book. (source)
Wow. So basically, the only thing that is standing between McCain and understanding the economy is ALAN GREENSPAN'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY.
I feel so much better.
No. Wait. I don't.
