Joe Biden Reminds Me Of Casper The Friendly Ghost

by Jason Zengerle | August 11, 2009

Niall Ferguson:

President Barack Obama reminds me of Felix the Cat. One of the best-loved cartoon characters of the 1920s, Felix was not only black. He was also very, very lucky.

I'm surprised Ferguson would write such a thing. I'm even more surprised his editor at the Financial Times didn't save him from himself.
