Gov. Walker Decides to Make Up Own Job Numbers

Bloomberg News reports that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is unhappy that recent federal labor statistics show Wisconsin has lost more jobs than any other state in the Union. So Walker will release his own figures showing that the state really added jobs instead of losing them.

As usual, the Indecision Forever blog supplies the best bon mot:
"Basically, Walker is Republican Jesus, except instead of turning water into wine, he turns crappy economic data into bullshit economic data."

Based on this, I would say Governor Walker has an excellent future here in Policyland if he loses the recall election.
