Happy Holidays! Want to read some awesome good news about America's rip-roaring stallion of an economy?
In a jolting surprise to the economic recovery and market expectations, the United States economy added just 39,000 jobs in November, and the unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent, according to the Department of Labor.
But wait, there's more!
November’s numbers were far below the consensus forecast of close to 150,000 jobs added and an unchanged unemployment rate of 9.6 percent.
Surely that can't be the limit of the glad tidings deliv'rd 'pon us this holy Shabbos!
More than 15 million people remained out of work last month, and 6.3 million of them have been unemployed for six months or longer.
If you, too, took a merry trip to the unemployment office this morning, then surely you shall rejoice in the knowledge that 14,999,999 other Americans are similarly disadvantaged this season. Maybe you guys should start a kickball league, or a knitting circle. Happy Econopocalyse!

Greetings, Jews! Looking for the perfect Hanukkah gift for the conservative relative you hate the least? Mosey on over to GOPStore.com, the official swag shop of the Republican National Committee! There are so very many terrible things to be had at this online place of commerce. Go on a spree here, and leave no Hebrew behind!
Your teabagging great-uncle will surely appreciate this red elephant tie, perfect for adding sex appeal to any synagogue budget committee meeting.
And don’t forget his gorgeous bride, your clinically-depressed great-aunt, the one who always smells like a mixture of Vick’s and primal rage. For her, a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle depicting all our glorious Republican presidents playing pool with one another. This puzzle is like mah-jongg for people who think that Barack Obama was born in Indonesia!
Surely your marriage-sanctity-protecting older brother could use some old-skool swag from the GOP Attic portion of the shop, where you’ll find plenty of original 2001 celebratory buttons from the inauguration of President George Walker Bush! Relive the pre-9/11 glory days, when the only objects repurposed as flying missiles were the eggs hurled at this great leader’s motorcade.
Your nice cousin’s icy blond shiksa wife (they met in law school — he should’ve gone to Brandeis, but who can say no to Yale?) will undoubtedly revel in the chance to put this "Annoy A Liberal: Work Hard, Be Happy" bumper sticker on her Lexus SUV. You know, the one she uses to ferry twins Madison and Molly (oy, like they’ll even have a bat mitzvah) to and from Lil’ Daughters of the American Revolution meetings.
So enjoy all eight days of your fake Christmas, Jewish conservatives. L'chaim!

Here's another one of those "hip hop" songs about Hanukkah, written by a Mormon senator from Utah for you to watch.
I'll tell you, if there's three things the Internet loves, it's cats being cute, babies who laugh and "hip hop" songs about Hanukkah, written by Mormon senators from Utah…
