the wacky right

they're the best thing obama has going for him.

24 hours ago everyone was talking about how shitty obama did in the presidential debate. today, it's all about how the wingnuts are so whacked they think a small drop in the unemployment rate which is consistent with the recent trend must be some kind of grand conspiracy. it both inflates the positive buzz about the economy (why would they freak out this much because of a drop to 7.8% unless 7.8% was really good) and changes the conversation from obama's weak debate performance to how completely batshit crazy people like allen west are.
