    Well, yeah, there's that. She's nowhere NEAR as 'chipper' as she was when she thought she was SUCH the media darling.

    Now she's competing with Baghdad Bob!

      She thought it was going to be a "fun" job that would look great on her resume. And at first that's how it went. A press corp obediently submitting their marshmallow (can't even call them softballs) questions in advance. Little did she realize that she would soon be defending the indefensible day in and day out.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        I wonder if her hair is graying like a POTUS does during his term.... but she keeps using the hair-in-a-bottle.

          POTUSs already have a bunch of miles on them. The current one seems bald and flat. She's still relatively young.

          But I wouldn't doubt that she mighta spotted her first one

            Funny, I don't recall that happening after the end of any other recession.
            I suspect a more complete explanation would involve how so many people who lost their jobs during the pandemic went out and got different jobs, and how a supply chain that is optimized for efficiency during good times might not be robust enough to recover quickly after the strain put on it during the last few years.

            And I wouldn't be surprised if there are a lot of other factors than the ones I've mentioned.

                  Fox News reports some CA ports are going to start fining shipping companies.

                  And as we know, companies don't pay fines, customers do.

                    Yes, supposedly fining for each container on each ship per day.

                      Such things tend to be complex. Such things are also exacerbated by incompetence and ineptitude

                        Even when the economy is circling the drain, the government makes sure it gets "theirs" one way or another.

                          That may be, unfortunately, that didn't stop the administration from mocking the problem.

                          Psaki mocked "the tragedy of the treadmill that's delayed."
                          Biden's Chief of Staff mocked issues as a "high-class problems."

                            They also claimed that skyrocketing inflation and empty shelves are typical for a strong growing economy coming out of a recession.

                              What sense does that make? As far I'm aware of the situation, the problem is not with the shipping companies but with the union dock workers being unable/unwilling to move the containers off the ships.
                              Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
                              But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
                              Than a fool in the eyes of God

                                Yes, they ought to fine the ports for every hour that productive activity is not taking place.
