“Ooh, that smell. Can’t you smell that smell? The smell that surrounds you” (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

In practical terms Leno’s joke last night about unemployment and President Obama’s policies would be funny if it didn’t sniff so close to the, um, truth.

One little problem that confronts you
Got a monkey on your back
Just one more fix, Lord might do the trick

Just did round three of ‘print more money’ aka QE3. Keynes, the Fed, and President Obama needed their fix.

Neh, that won’t trash the economy more…

Got a monkey on your back, Barack.

Funny. Funny. Funny, Jay.
