Funny not in an Al Franken, SNL sort of way. More like funny as in a $3 bill or, as Sen. Harry Reid would say it, funny as in federally subsidized "green" energy give-a-ways (for his pals) helping Las Vegas out of its depression.
First comes the news this morning that June jobless numbers rose to 9.2 percent. At what point in the nightmare called the Obama Administration (thanks again BTW, Sen. Reid) do we admit that his thoroughly Democratic FDR kinda economic plan of spend us into bankruptcy isn't working.
Then comes the news that Minnesota's Democrat governor dismissed all but his essential staff due to government shutdown.
And who did the governor deem "essential" during the shutdown?
His personal chef and his server.
