Sucking Hard With A Vengeance

There doesn't seem to be a reason to discuss why austerity economics don't work - the evidence is overwhelming and depressing. Even if the goofy teabaggers and corporate whores over at the MacIver Institute thought they could just make up their own job numbers (it didn't fool the Journal Sentinel).
Reggie "Urkel" Newson at the Department of Worforce Development - and who's job relies on a Walker re-election - touted a "revised" job assessment that began with "based on all the indicators we look at..." tells you everything you need to know about cherry-picking statistics.

Anyway, if you desire a more detailed and painful summary, see our friends over at Cognitive Dissidence for their exhaustive conclusions. It's worth the read...but only with a strong drink in hand.
