Nancy Pelosi emerges from her hole, reads job report. Lies anyway.

Hey, where did she come from?

Pelosi was not to be outdone, however, firing back at the president who she claimed had "the worst jobs record since the Great Depression," in spite of Friday's news that the October jobless rate fell to 4.4 percent, the lowest it has been in more than five years.
Pay no attention to those shills at the Labor Department!

Yes yes yes! The unemployment rate is the purest distillation of economic reality ever devised. It sprang, fully formed, from the brow of Zeus himself, and its unchangeable formula can never been altered by the will of man.

Is Pelosi crazy? To manipulate the unemployment formula for short-term political gain? It would be as unthinkable as spray-painting the Sistine Chapel!

4.4% is reality, 4.4% is truth, 4.4% is like the freezing point of water, or the rate of gravity. How dare that lying trollop Pelosi deviate by even an atom from inarguable scientific fact?

It's simply amazing, how dropping a couple of hundred thousand people out of the pool can immediately improve the ol' statistics.
