You're fired

John Kerry did well to note Snow's deployment of the household survey claptrap. So far, we have been spared this coming out of Bush's mouth, but it has always been on the tip of his tongue. "Hell, if you don't like my fake policies for creating jobs, what if job loss never happened at all? Then where would you be? Nyah."

When the Secreatry of the Freaking Treasury denies the economic consensus that has been approved and attested to by no less than the single most important figure in your policy shenanigans (Alan Greenspan's remarks last July) then you don't get to push that line in public. The fact that they are doing just that is a measure of how depraved the merger of political operation and policymaking have grown in the Bush administration.
