Kevin Drum is funny
You have to click through to the Media Matters link to get the joke.
My only quibble is when MediaMatters say "This alternative measure of unemployment, which conservatives often call the 'real' unemployment rate". I and a lot of people do agree that the U6 number is a better measure of the state of unemployment. Granted some opportunistic conservatives only started using the number during the Obama administration. But i don't like seeing the entire measurement slandered!

in my charitable moments, i start considering the possibility that they're not intentionally manipulating the graphics. i start entertaining the possibility that they're just too stupid to know how to use a spreadsheet.
but then i have a reality check and realize they're both intentionally manipulative and stupid.
