Faux Snooze is taking Jobs number really hard.

UPDATED: FoxNews.com: What Jobs Numbers?



Original post:

This morning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the September unemployment rate fell to 7.8%. With the election just a month away, the report is being characterized as "unexpected good news" for President Obama. While some conservatives responded to the jobs report by alleging that the BLS was cooking the books to aid Obama's re-election, FoxNews.com is currently treating it as minor news.

The drop in unemployment is given a small headline beneath their top story: Vice President Joe Biden restating the administration's years-old policy of wanting to let Bush tax cuts expire for top earners -- a story that has been aggressively pushed by the GOP and the Romney campaign. (It also appears in a small headline in their "Markets" section on the right side of the page.) :

You're letting facts get between you and an opinion. Go with the Faux. It's easier than thinking.

7. Un-plausible deniability




They should relocate their studios to the banks of that river in Egypt.

8. They had one day of joy

Obama didn't do well in the debate, they were able to don the dancing shoes. Surely Mitt would now lead them to the chosen land, or Zorba...wherever Mormons figure they'll wind up.

Then just 24 measly hours later the world comes crashing down and the only recourse is belief in a massive conspiracy the likes of which will make that fake moon landing look like claymation.

I enjoy watching republicans implode, it makes me smile.
