James Pethokoukis Posts Update Geoff's Unemployment-Projection Chart

Geoff's chart continues to make news, even though Geoff has moved on from the blog for real life.

Actually the folks at e21 are updating it, but Pethokoukis notes how continuingly awesome it is.

Unemployment continues to be above where Obama predicted it would be without the stimulus; that is, according to Obama's promises and projections, we would have been far better off simply not having a stimulus at all. Unemployment would be lower and we'd have an extra trillion in mad money to play with, if we felt like it.

In related news, because I said so, TMZ reports that Weiner offered PR help to Ginger Lee in crafting a lie to cover their, um, "frivolous exchanges between friends."

I need frivolous friends like this, I tell you what.

No seriously, we now return to our regular not-so-much-dick format. But how can I pass up on this?

See, this is a post about economics. It just has this bonus material.

Via Gabe for the employment stuff and Slublog for the deployment stuff. Those are their Twitter handles, btw, if you want to follow.
