Revised job numbers apparently show that Wisconsin gained about 30,000 jobs since Scott Walker took office. And it gets worse for Tom Barrett, because Walker can legitimately claim that he is responsible for every one of those jobs. A closer look at the numbers shows that they were all created at Ian's Pizza during the Capitol protests.
Speaking of the recall, politicos and pundits have been scratching their heads trying to figure out why the Democratic National Committee has been so reluctant to put any money behind Barrett. Yesterday we found out when the DNC put all their money into the Facebook IPO.
"Look, we just caught Facebook fever over here at the DNC, what can I tell you?" said Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC chair. "Barrett-Schmarrett," she went on, "we're going to make a killing in the market. I don't think anybody else has thought of this! We are geniuses!"
Facebook went public yesterday at $38 a share and raised $16 billion. Mark Zuckerberg updated his profile to list his interests as "counting my money, no wait counting YOUR money, hah!" and his favorite quote as "a sucker is born every minute."

In sports news, the magic number now for the Milwaukee Brewers is down to 124. That's the number of games remaining before the season mercifully ends in the fall. In the meantime, I'm checking out NASCAR.
That's all I've got for now. Have a good weekend, kids.
