McCain to Jobless: Shut Your Pie Holes, Losers, and Go Sell Some Crap on Ebay! 

So seriously, McCain thinks the economy will be A-OK in the coming recession because we can all just make a living off Ebay.

We went through this a few years ago when Thomas Friedman (I think) decided outsourcing wasn't bad for the US -- not even bad for the people whose jobs went overseas -- because now they could just make millions selling T-shirts with glib references to outsourcing.

You got that, you fucking losers?

Meanwhile, some "economist" (I am too lazy to look it up but I think this word means "gay") is all up in McCain's grill about his genius brainstorm. Here's what the hater said:
This affection for EBay as an engine for job creation, however, confounds economists such as Betsey Stevenson, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia.

"In terms of jobs, there's no net increase in GDP that comes from trading stuff that's already made," said Stevenson, author of a study on the Internet and employment levels. "New people selling stuff out of their closet on EBay isn't growing the economy."
Sheesh, Betsey! Why can't you find something positive to talk about? Next she'll probably start bashing Ebay's awesome health and pension plans.
