Nancy Pelosi is the dumbest Speaker of the House we have ever had.
She’s had days to figure out a way to explain how spending millions of dollars in STD prevention will improve our economy. the best she’s come up with thus far is a thirty second verbal train wreck that amounts to “Well, it just does!”. She doesn’t even have sufficient conviction of her progressive beliefs to say that she thinks that more government spending is a good thing for all of us.
Mary Katharine Ham says that the Republicans’ best strategy now may be to keep having Pelosi explain parts of her legislation. How can I disagree? If this clip showed up on every nightly news program this evening, public support for her plan would be down twenty points by Monday.
You can watch her fumbling circumlocution after the jump. I warn you, though. You will want to take precautions to shield your brain cells else you will finish the clip dumber than when you started.
