I pretty much only pay attention to politics when politics veer off into blackly comic absurdity. Which, these days, basically means all the time.
And lo, here comes former General Electric CEO Jack Welch tweeting that the new, encouragingly low unemployment statistics are a sham, perpetrated by the villainous left in an attempt to rebound from Obama’s poor debate performance.
And just when you think, “oh, no big deal, it’s just one hard-line nutjob shouting into the void,” other, more influential hard-line nutjobs start backing him up.
Politicians are ugh.
