  • Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, kinda laughed at by Ira Glass
Politicians love love love talking about job creation, reported Ira Glass over the weekend on NPR's This American Life.

In fact, some pols are so crazy about new jobs, they'll hold a press conference when a government program creates just ONE single job.

Such as Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, for example, who told Glass there was a press event earlier this year up in Bethany when a small business loan program allowed a woman to open up shop in her basement printing t-shirts and signs.

Glass's response, after some laughter: "And you showed up?"

Yowch.
