The Stimulus Worked. Psych!

Great news on the economy.  The unemployment rate is now just 9.8%.  See, the stimulus worked!

Oh, wait.  Unemployment actually increased?  Well, whatdayaknow, maybe the Republicans were right when they said the stimulus wouldn’t work.  Who knew that $787 billion in giveaways to states, pork barrel projects, and phony tax “cuts” wouldn’t create jobs?

Bristol Palin Smacks Down Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann named Bristol Palin the “Worst Person in the World” for doing an ad promoting abstinence (it’s a segment on his show where he mocks people he disagrees with a jokingly calls them the worst persons in the world).

Bristol did not like this, so she took to Facebook to respond.

Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy. I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the “worst person in the world” to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be. To Mr. Olbermann let me say this: you can attack me all you want. But you will not stop me from getting my message out about teen pregnancy prevention. And one day, if you ever have a daughter, you may change your mind about me.

Zing!  Most likely Keith will never have a daughter, since, as a eunuch, he lacks the male organ necessary for procreation.
