The Snark of the Day Award goes to Zero Hedge for their take on the unemployment numbers.
The 0.4% perfectly unmanipulated and totally coincidental swing in the unemployment rate in an Obama favorable direction one month before the election came at a prime time moment for the market.
What’s more, the government revised unemployment numbers for previous months downwards too, apparently after stumbling across some key pieces of data they’d somehow overlooked before. Only conspiracy theory nutcases on the right and cranky lefties could find fault with the government’s diligence in insuring that unemployment numbers are squeaky clean, even if the downwards trend bizarrelyÂ occurredÂ right before the election.
And of course, liberals who would have attacked GWBush releasing for such suspicious unemployment numbers are now resolutely mute since it is Obama who is doing it.
Let the charade continue!
