    It appears that the centerpiece of Obama jobs bill is to rebuild the much
    depleted U.S paper clip industry.

    He didn't want to have to remove a staple once they start telling him how much of it won't fly...

    Obviously the binding industry lobby in DC is much weakened

    Kinko's stoked, however, at clear use of White House account to print color copies at only .10¢ a page.

    More likely they used Costco. When they were picking up lunch they had the copies made.

    It's real set back for the green lobby. Paper clips never break down and are toxic to sea turtles.

    Most of us had high school book reports that were presented better.

    It appears that Obama did not follow the rubric that Boehner provided. Points added or subtracted for presentation format.

    That really is pretty funny.

    The guy that lectured Republicans about "getting their work done" -- and used his daughter's homework habits as a contrast -- didn't have his bill done in time for his speech last week, and by the looks of it, he barely got it done in time for its Rose Garden launch.

    Does anyone else wonder if all the pages beneath his cover page are blank? Like they couldn't get it printed in time so they just clipped a cover page on a bunch of empty pages so he had something to hold up for the cameras?

    Didn't Calvin and Hobbes teach us all that if you want an A, your work must be in a clear plastic binder?

    Maybe it's clipped to the missing Whitewater documents.
