Just Your Ordinary Extraordinary
I was going to say that I find it extraordinary that Republicans are suddenly declaring the Bureau of Labor Statistics a house of lies and "Chicago Style Politics" because it has reported that unemployment has fallen to less than eight percent when Republicans have obstructed Democratic efforts to pass the Jobs Bill for month after month after month just so they could tout the numbers reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as proof of Obama's failure to clean up the catastrophic mess left by the Bush administration for them fast enough. But this sort of thing is so ordinary for the birther, death-panel, anti-Darwinian, climate change denialist, macroeconomically illiterate, legitimate rape and recreational abortion Movement Republicans it would simply be untrue to call it extraordinary, extraordinary though it is.
