It's a Scott Walker Job Numbers Miracle!

Early this morning, Wisconsin media picked up the news that Scott Walker's Department of Workforce Development would put out new job numbers. Early numbers. Different numbers than the ones the national Bureau of Labor Statistics had been using.

By noon, according to a friend who covers the state, this ad was already on the air.

Democrats, who've been raising hell every day of the Walker era, are raising fresher hell today, holding two (2) availabilities to discuss "illegal coordination" between Walker and the state's bureaucracy. That might be a stretch, but it's closer to it than anything that's bugged Kim Strassel about the Obama campaign.

(Please note that Walker's slogan, like Obama's, is "forward." That's also the motto of the state. Clip and save for the next time the slogan is tied to international socialism.)
