Thursday is New Jobless Day

Congratulations to the 336K new lucky duckies.

But, more importantly, tomorrow the monthly jobs report comes out. The usual reminder - anything under 150K or so is a "bad" number and anything under 300K or so is less than the average monthly job creation number Bush used to justify his most recent tax cut...

Now, that would be a question for a press conference. "Mr. Preznit, in Februrary of 2004, your Council of Economic Advisers predicted that if your tax plan passed, that 3,672,000 new jobs would be created. What went wrong?"
