It’s the Stupid, Economy!

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and apparently that’s what President-Elect Obama plans to use to cure the ailing economy:

Gov. Jennifer Granholm and former U.S. Rep. David Bonior will serve on a panel of financial luminaries and corporate experts advising President-elect Barack Obama on the nation’s hard-bitten economy, ensuring Michigan, its troubled auto industry and labor has a seat at the table.

Take it from somebody who lives here — unless these Michigan Democrats are going to be seated at the “examples of what not to do” table, we could be in for a long economic haul.

If Governor Granholm is advising Obama on economics, I can only assume that the President-Elect will put Joseph Hazelwood on his EPA advisory committee, Lindsay Lohan will provide her expertise to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and of course Courtney Love will be tapped to head up a nationalized finishing school for young ladies.
