Craziest Quote of the Day

This would count for the year and probably the decade too. It is from Dick Armey, former House Majority Leader from Texas, and former Department Chair at North Texas State University:
“I don’t consider Larry Summers a serious economist,” Armey said. “You can get a Ph.D. from Harvard without ever having seriously considered the subject.”
I wonder if you can get the John Bates Clark Medal without seriously considering the subject? Here is the article it came from.

Summers list of publications is at least 10 pages long (his cv is here).
