Dave Letterman Proves He's a Tough Guy | Main | A Superficial Reading of the Amnesty Bill Suggests It's Flawed, But a Deeper Reading Suggests It's Just Awful
April 10, 2013

Arianna Huffington: "So how long is it going to be before Washington admits the truth -- that the emperor has no jobs? " [Purp]

Seemed stompworthy...

Of course she's coming at it from the left, pimping the Krugmanesque Moar, Moar, Moar strategy. But still...

Largely missing from the plan, and from all the breathless press around it, was any real acknowledgment of the jobs crisis that had -- yet again -- been made obvious only hours earlier. So if you knew absolutely nothing about what was going on in the United States and then read the details of the president's budget and the coverage that followed, you certainly wouldn't come away thinking, "Wow, there must really be a big jobs crisis here."

We're years into it, millions of lives have been derailed and destroyed, and yet you'd never guess that by listening to what's being prioritized in Washington.

N.B., there appears to be a disturbing lack of typical vitriolic republican bashing there... This piece has its sights set on Obama.

Hear weird sound up in the sky?
Yea, its a flock of pigs flying.
