    Involved the preliminary, unverified, not-comparable-to-any-other-states-because-they-weren't-out-yet 2011 QCEW data.

    When that did come out for other states, Wisconsin was in 38th place (which surprised few who were paying attention), down from 11th in 2010 (and infamously for the 12 months up to June 2012 we're down to 42nd place now since the effects of the Doyle 2009-11 budget in the first 6 months of 2011 slipped out of the window).

    That's what always frustrated me the most about those ads: they took a completely awful and pathetic number reflective of abysmal economic leadership and touted them as the bee's knees on the basis that they weren't as apocalyptic as the CES data.

    11th to 38th and now 42nd is what I like to try to shove down the throats of the "it's working" crowd.

    Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.
