Sources are saying Sen. Ben Nelson (D-ish, Neb.) is going to announce his retirement tomorrow, perhaps so he can spend more time learning how to use an ATM.

I don't have to tell you the unemployment situation has been bad, is still bad and appears as if it will continue to be bad until the world ends in 2012. However, there is some good news on the jobs front today. The "Free Lindsay Lohan" t-shirt industry has seen quadruple growth this week with no signs of slowing. Meanwhile, here's what Jon Stewart had to say about unemployment on last night's Daily Show.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
