Friday Stupid: Is Pelosi Getting Drunk Before Appearances?

It’s funny. The left is accusing John Boehner of drinking in bars every night (where was the concern with Ted Kennedy?) Perhaps they should be more concerned about Pelosi knocking back a few shots of Mezcal prior to speaking appearances

Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it gives recipients little incentive to work. By her reasoning, those checks are helping give somebody a job.

“It injects demand into the economy,” Pelosi said, arguing that when families have money to spend it keeps the economy churning. “It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

Pelosi said the aid has the “double benefit” of helping those who lost their jobs and acting as a “job creator” on the side.<

So, by her standards, everyone should be out of work, because that would create jobs (?). Someone give her a breathalyzer test. It’s no wonder our usual allies, and even tiny countries, are no longer taking the advice of the United States, what with the Troika of Stupid featuring Pelosi, Reid, and Obama.

Speaking of stupid, Jim Hoft catches a great gaffe from PeBO

Barack Obama blew a line from Emma Lazarus‘ poem “The New Colossus” that appears on a bronze plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty today during his immigration speech.

And even the White House website had it wrong. And a new study is ranking Bush low for intelligence?
