Democrats’ graph shows how unemployment insurance helps economy


President Obama appeared this morning with a backdrop of human props to call for an extension to long-term unemployment insurance. His selling point: unemployment insurance “actually helps the economy, actually creates new jobs.”

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, not everyone was convinced. Fortunately, both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid offered this helpful graph yesterday to take the mystery out of the president’s plan.


It’s all so much clearer now.




‘Spring break in Siberia is off’: Pols react to being #SanctionedByPutin

Not so fast, there. The #SanctionedByPutin hashtag is taking off after all, and the Wall Street Journal has even declared those who have been sanctioned members of “the hottest club in D.C.” Who in Washington is cool enough to be a member of this exclusive club?

Also sanctioned were National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Adviser Caroline Atkinson, and White House aide Daniel Pfeiffer. If you’re not on that list, you weren’t sanctioned. Sorry.
