A recently released study shows that nearly 10% of Americans are suffering the symptoms of depression...with the rate significantly higher among those who, ironically, aren't getting hired.
Scientists say that the real numbers are probably even worse, because the study didn't collect data from prisoners or the homeless...although both groups can presumably be measured while being driven to the polls by Democrats in November.
In making their assessment, researchers looked for hopelessness, disinterest, lethargy, and feelings of failure...which are coincidentally the same qualities that Barack Obama recently accused Democratic voters of having.
But while Hope has fallen on hard times under the Democrats, Change is coming in just a few weeks. And we're confident that when it comes to improving the nation's mood, progress will beat prozac.
