Watch/Listen to Matt Welch and Peter Schiff Talk Presidential Politics & Economic Policy

Yesterday I went on Peter Schiff's radio show for 20 minutes and jawboned about John McCain, housing policy, the 2012 election, the entitlement bomb, and whether there's a moral imperative to raise taxes instead of running deficits, among many other topics. You can listen to the exchange below while watching Señor Schiff's side of the conversation:

    ...jawboned about John McCain...

    Matt, ever feel like you got screwed writing about McCain, and here now Brian is publishing a book about Disco Brotherman Ron Paul? It's just not fair.

    Oh heavens no. I stumbled upon what I think is a genuine and original insight into an over-covered politician, which is something that almost never happens. Wouldn't change a thing.

    My sister has a longchamp and she likes the Longchamp Bag very much. When people ask her why she likes her sac longchamp Bag so much, she just answers like that thee is no reason and because she likes my Longchamp Bag, so she likes it.
