...Out comes that "good economic news" the American media (also known as "Nancy Pelosi's Press Office") was saying was non-existent several weeks ago.
Gas prices? Now the media discovers that they are down. Wages? Heck - they are rising! The stock market is over 12,000, don't you know! It must all be a reaction to the Republicans losing, right?
A brisk rise in American wages
American paychecks are rising again at a pace not seen since the 1990s.
The pay increase amounts to 4 percent on average over the past 12 months, and it comes at a very helpful time for millions of households.
For three years, pay increases haven't kept pace with the rising cost of living. Then came this year's housing slowdown, which has further squeezed family finances.
Those setbacks, however, are now being offset by rising income. Four percent may not sound like much, but you have to look back to 1997 to find a calendar year with a gain that big.
Aw, darn, shucks, incredible! All this good news, unreported for months, because the media wanted you to know how bad things were in Iraq - all because of George W. Bush and those evil Republicans!
I don't think we can stand any more good news!
