I chatted briefly with a certain member of Congress at netroots nation. While I didn't really get his views, and don't know if he was in the depressingly stupid column, looking back he probably thought I was nuts. We were talking about the economy and he said Dems in his cohort were still trying to figure things out, which was an honest admission. I launched into a diatribe about how Bernanke should be dropping money from helicopters, the federal government should open the spigots and spend money on anything and everything, etc. You know, the usual crap you read here.
