Insane Clown Posse explains the September jobs report that has conservatives in a tizzy.
Here’s the bite-sized version: Republicans are losing their shit and accusing the Bureau of Labor Statistics of cooking the books because unemployment has fallen to the lowest rate since January 2009. 
Y’know, the month Barack Obama took office. Ezra Klein has already dispatched with the conspiracy theories here. This also kills the “unemployment is stuck at eight percent” part of Mitt’s stump speech, and his debate prep. From this Wednesday in Denver:

"There’s no question in my mind that if the president were to be reelected you’ll continue to see a middle-class squeeze with incomes going down and prices going up. I’ll get incomes up again. You’ll see chronic unemployment. We’ve had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8 percent."

In summary, +1 to Obama if he does this in the next debate:
