re: Your Unemployment Rate.

[UPDATE]: Welcome, Instapundit readers.

Instapundit put up a 38 second video that shows the growth of unemployment by county since January of 2007 (short version: it’s doubled). As one of his readers later noted, the video looks like nothing so much as a video of a standard zombie infestation.

I can work with that.

    I swear that around September / October 2009 the part the is remains yellow kind of looks like Che Guevera’s head. I think we could make that into T-shirts and sell them. All you need is a good caption for underneath.

    Dead or not, you freeze stiff in seconds in SD, ND and NE.

    And you die of boredom in the 3 month long other period.

    Looks like the lights are slowly going out, all across America. Time to get the zombies out of DC, if it’s not already too late.
