Out in Washington, most of my Campaign for America's Future colleagues are at a great CAF-sponsored conference on "Thinking Big, Thinking Forward" —about how to achieve the kind of ideas for the economy that we need, not the ideas Susan Collins and Ben Nelson will support. Our research team has just kicked in a major report  on the subject, "Beyond Recovery: America's Public Investment Deficit." And ABC News has done a major piece on our efforts on their website. They call our side of the debate the "Krugman Democrats,"  quoting Bob Borossage extensively, after Paul Krguman's columns demonstrating that if it's actually economic recovery we're after, the stimulus needs to be much bigger. I would call people who say that "reality-based Democrats," not "Krugman Democrats," but at least they spell Bob's name right, so that's OK.
Meanwhile, on the subject of being divorced from reality—I subscribe to a service called "Publisher's Lunch," a tip sheet that announces the latest book deals. Here's a new deal just signed:
Brian Jennings's CENSORSHIP: Talk Radio in Jeopardy, a comprehensive look at the Fairness Doctrine and the potential risks it poses to conservative talk radio, to Anthony Ziccardi at Pocket, with Kathy Sagan editing, by Frank Breeden of Premiere Authors Literary Agency.
Good to know that while Democrats, and hopefully some Republicans of good faith, put their shoulder to the wheel saving the economy for future generations, the right will be keeping busy with an entirely imaginary conspiracy theory.
