And More WTF News

It was announced today that the nation's poverty rate rose. Screw whatever the numbers are for they're irrelevant except to anyone who isn't living below the generous poverty line of less than $19,000. Of note:

The South is the poorest
Blacks are the poorest ethnic group
The city with more than one million residents that saw the highest increase in the number of people living under the poverty line is New York, despite the Northeast having the highest increase in income, along with the West
Incomes dropped only in the Midwest

Looks like red staters got the old red-bum salute. Can we please start thinking about a better President? Now?
