The Dumbest Thing a Politician Said This Week
It's very difficult to achieve this honor because so many politicians say so many dumb things so often. But the prize this week must go to South Dakota Senator Kent Conrad who takes the prize for this statement regarding the health care "reform" process making its way through Congress.
"There are not the votes for Democrats to do this just on our side of the aisle. It is not possible and perhaps not desirable either," Conrad said on ABC's "This Week."
If you haven't counted lately, there are sixty Democrats in the Senate. Even if all the Republicans voted in lockstep (highly unlikely) there votes are indeed there "just on [his] side of the aisle." Wonder what he's trying to hide?
