I’ve seen this via multiple accounts today… (with a challenge to @bwilliams)

…and it’s pretty danged funny: “Brian Williams raps Warren G’s ‘Regulate.’

I’d pay some money to see Brian Williams rap on his own. Not a ridiculous amount of money, but it’d be worth a twenty to Williams’ favorite charity.

We are all Keynesians now, if you define ‘all’ as ‘< 12%.'

But no doubt the administration just needs to explain the situation better to the American people.

No doubt.

While influential 20th Century economist John Maynard Keynes would say it’s best to increase deficit spending in tough economic times, only 11% of American adults agree and think the nation needs to increase its deficit spending at this time. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% disagree and say it would be better to cut the deficit.

In fact, 59% think Keynes had it backwards and that increasing the deficit at this time would hurt the economy rather than help.

To help the economy, most Americans (56%) believe that cutting the deficit is the way to go.

Hey! How about another speech? That might work.

Arlington rap song.

We’ll start today with something that should be of local interest only:

…only, local in this case is “inside the Beltway,” which means that it’ll get infinitely more play than a rap song about say, New Hope, PA*. A shame, in its way: it’s hysterical in its own right. But I say it as a guy who has always been Straight Outta Green Line.

Well, since I moved down here, at least.

*But not Lynwood, CA.

So a bit of a debate among my political colleagues.

It’s the usual one about whether this list (The Top 10 Rap Songs White People Love) can even be remotely considered to be accurate, given that Cypress Hill is nowhere to be found on it. I’d argue that it’s really a list of “The Top 10 Rap Songs White People Shouldn’t Love, But Do,” – but I’ve gotten some resistance on that by the strict constructionists.  So it goes.

That being said, Rock Superstar still continues to charm:

Good advice, too.
