Nancy Pelosi Says Voters Will Blame ‘Incumbent’ Republicans for the High Unemployment Rate

First, we were down here for several hours. I haven’t been told the reason yet, but it’s been annoying enough lately to have me looking around for a new service provider.

Anyway, just because this site was down didn’t stop Nancy Pelosi from bringing the funny:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi framed her campaign argument against Republicans ahead of the 2012 elections, predicting the GOP will be blamed for the high unemployment rate.

“When the … unemployment rate is high, it’s hard for the incumbent to win,” Pelosi said in an interview with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley. “I remind you though, we’re not the incumbent. The Republicans are the incumbent.”

Barack Obama heard that and said, “Yeah, voters will blame the Republicans who are the incumbe… wait, what?”

Pelosi lost her tenuous grip on reality years ago, but these days every word is a cry for a straight jacket. Sorry Nancy, but when you were stripped of your gavel in 2010, you were and are the “incumbent” who has helped dig a hole it’ll take generations to get out of, if ever. Look forward to more of the same in 2012.
