Absolutely Brilliant ! ! ! 
COSTELLO:  I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America  .

                                ABBOTT: Good Subject.  Terrible Times.
                                It's 5.6%.
                                COSTELLO:  That many people are out of
                                ABBOTT: No, that's 23%. 
                                COSTELLO: You just said 5.6%.
                                ABBOTT:  5.6% Unemployed.
                                COSTELLO:  Right 5.6% out of work.
                                ABBOTT: No, that's 23%.
                                COSTELLO: Okay, so it's  23% unemployed.
                                ABBOTT: No, that's 5.6%.
                                COSTELLO:  WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 5.6% or
                                ABBOTT: 5.6% are unemployed.  23% are
                                out of work.
                                COSTELLO: If you are out of work you are
                                ABBOTT:  No, Obama said you can't count
                                the "Out of Work" as the unemployed.
                                You have to look for work to be
                                COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!
                                ABBOTT: No, you miss his point.
                                COSTELLO:  What point?
                                ABBOTT:  Someone who doesn't look for
                                work can't be counted with those who
                                look for work.  It wouldn't be fair. 
                                COSTELLO: To whom?
                                ABBOTT: The unemployed.  
                                COSTELLO: But ALL of them are out of
                                ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively
                                looking for work. 
                                Those who are out of work gave up
                                looking and if you give up, you are no
                                longer in the ranks of the unemployed. 
                                COSTELLO: So if you're off the
                                unemployment roles that would count as
                                less unemployment?
                                ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down.
                                COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes
                                down because you don't look for work?
                                ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes  down. That's
                                how it gets to 5.6%. Otherwise it would
                                be 23%.
                                COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for
                                you. That means there are two ways to
                                bring down the unemployment number?  
                                ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
                                COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if
                                someone gets a job?
                                ABBOTT: Correct.
                                COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go
                                down if you stop looking for a job?
                                ABBOTT: Bingo. 
                                COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring
                                unemployment down, and the easier of the
                                two is to have people stop looking for
                                ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a
                                COSTELLO:  I don't even know what the
                                hell I just said! 
                                ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like
