This just in, Obama critized for living in lavish mansion.

Over the past three years, as the sluggish economy has forced many Americans to tighten their belts, President Obama has reportedly enjoyed a lavish personal lifestyle, residing with his family in a 132-room house staffed by a 24-hour security detail, five full-time chefs, and a live-in maid service.

In recent weeks, many of the president's critics have seized upon the issue, arguing that anyone who sleeps in a sprawling six-level neoclassical mansion covering 18 acres of Washington, D.C.'s most valuable real estate is clearly out of touch with the lives of ordinary citizens.

The Huffington Post is using a psychometer for this week's pundit review.



don't forget to click the "read more" link

I hope people know to click the read more link since there is some dynamite video clips to see.

If we missing anything in the economic related round up of funnies, please share in a comment. Comedy on economics, finance that's laugh out loud is hard to find (and do!)!

not sure why SMC is being front paged

Folks, the SMC and FMN are basically just for regulars. These are collections of funnies but beyond "editor's choice" and the snark always created at the top, none of this is original material. Both are also a series, just putting together all of the screamingly funny related to economics since finding people with a sense of humor on econ is hard to come by! That's unlike the original articles which go out to Google news and are original (often) research.

SMC muppets updated, new clip!

I added a brand new clip from Funnie or Die, at the top, on the Goldman Sachs Muppets reference.

It goes with the other muppets and is screamingly funny! Remember, when we first covered this story, we used muppets as the image placeholder, illustration.

this is kind of fun

Forbes has a map of dominant media. Generally I never quote Forbes, but this shows which media dominates which region.

Consider these open threads. I notice people are commenting on the site's Facebook page. We have Facebook going as a courtesy, some people live on Facebook and want to stay. The problem is people are commenting on Facebook and not the main site.

I'll never go to Facebook because I'm way too busy with the EP itself, writing and so on.

I fear the material is so "heavy" most are just reading, so this is a reminder, any of the series are open threads. You can put whatever's on your mind, it doesn't have to have a calculation in it! ;)
