Stock Market Politics & the McCain Market Rally

Friday, March 28, 2008 | 04:00 PM

I love when this happens:

In the beginning of the month, I jokingly referred to the market correction as The John McCain Market Selloff. I was -- rather sarcastically, I thought -- pre-empting the usual poor analysis that comes from partisan quarters.

Statements such as these are actually "tells;" They reveal a profound misunderstanding of how markets operate, and only serve to alert you to a persons political preferences. They provide no insight into the "preferences" of the markets.

The John McCain Market Selloff, March 07, 2008

Can Laffer please please just go away? I think he's done quite enough damage to the well being of the less than rich American, thanks anyway.
