Job Market...

by Jayson at Polipundit:

I say we take our own job market survey.

First rule, be honest. And no spinning. Leave that to the Paul Krugmans of the world.

I'll start.

Up until May 7th, I worked for a national law firm. I then started my own business. I'm single and unattached. [Hint, hint, ladies ;-)] I've gone from being an unhappy lawyer who literally banged his head against a wall each day, to being a happy business owner.

So, on a household survey basis, I'm a wash. On a payroll basis, I'm a minus-1. On a job satisfaction basis, well, let's just say that you'd need a hack saw to get the smile off my face.

R.S.V.P., folks.

My suspicion is that the Household Survey is in fact closer to the truth than the Payroll Survey. And the fact that the press pushes the bad news and ignores the good is good for Bush. They are trying to help Kerry, but they are doing just the opposite. Why? 'Cause the truth will emerge eventually. And if the situation is as good as I think it is, they won't be able to keep the lid on through the election.

In fact, they are engineering an "October Surprise" for Bush. Same for Iraq. The press/Democrat/jihadi alliance (The Axis Of Entropy: Putting sand in the gears wherever reform is attempted!) timed their move wrong. They threw what I suspect is their worst at us in May! Is that stupid or what?
