A left-leaning blogger at Poison Your Mind has suggested that the GOP is insane from top to bottom. I do not disagree that many Republicans have behaved rather irrationally in recent years. That said, the Democratic Party has its fair share of those who are both lacking in intelligence and rationality.
Exhibit A is Nancy Pelosi.
Below, I have compiled a collection of her “greatest hits.”
“Every Month That We Do Not Have An Economic Recovery Package, 500 Million Americans Lose Their Jobs”
This one is precious. Of course, there aren’t 500 million Americans. There are roughly 300 million.
Natural Gas Is an Alternative to Fossil Fuels
Again, Representative Pelosi’s ignorance is staggering.
“There Is More Bang for the Buck…by Investing in Food Stamps…”
Double Standard on Minimum Wage
“We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It”
This little gem could be a Freudian slip about what Pelosi really thinks about the “proles.”
“There Will Be No Earmarks”
This comment is an outright lie.
Hypocrisy on Tea Party Protests
Representative Pelosi admires “disruptors” so long as they agree with her.
Healthcare Bill Allows People to Quit Their Jobs and Pursue Their “Creative” Interests
For once, I agree with Representative Pelosi that the Bill will allow more people to quit their jobs. However, I do not think millions of people leaving honest work would be a positive overall development for the country.
“It Runs Out When the Problems Go Away”
Unemployment Checks Create Jobs
No comment necessary.
The bottom line is that while the left and right have their share of lunatics and idiots, Representative Pelosi takes the cake.
