Continuing their jihad against fact-based evidence, Laura Ingraham and The Combover are absolutely convinced that today's announced uptick of unemployment benefits claims prove that THE BLS IS IN THE TANK FOR OBAMA ZOMG!1!1!

It's unclear, however, why they believe one group of Obama administration bureaucrats but angrily dismiss another out of hand.

Anyway, yesterday, Gallup had the unadjusted unemployment rate in the US at 7.3% -- it's lowest number yet.

Great news, right?

But to review: the BLS is shilling for Obama, as is the Gallup organization -- but the St. Louis Fed isn't.

Glad we cleared all that up.
