Maxine Waters Wins!

Our politicians, on both sides of aisle, have been having a contest to see who can say the dumbest and most outrageously exaggerated thing about the "dangers" of sequestration.

But Maxine Waters, Democrat from Venus, clearly wins.

It may be worth pointing out that the total number of employed people in the U.S. is just south of 135 million.  So for 170 million people to lose their jobs would indeed be catastrophic.  100% of the US labor force would have to lose its job (including Ms. Waters, which is not a bad idea, now that I think of it).  And then another 35 million people who aren't even employed would have to find jobs, and then lose them, all in the same instant.

No WONDER we are afraid of sequestration.

Ms. Waters' mouthpiece says that was an "obvious slip of the tongue."  Really?  So from now on when someone says something that is clearly wrong, Ms. Waters is going to say, "Don't criticize that poor fella; it was an obvious slip of the tongue!"  Somehow, when Mitt Romney said, "Binders full of women," it was a big deal.  Clearly a slip of the tongue.  Sauce for the goose, Ms. Waters.

UPDATE:  This is a remarkable statement.  Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is worried about bad people, "nameless, faceless bureaucrats," paradoxically the very same people Rep. DWS thinks should run everyone's lives.  Are these bureaucrats really smart, or not, Debbie?  And then, she suggests that the Republicans should go "to see the wizard."  It's hard to know what that even might mean.  I recognize that the Congressional Democrats believe in magic, but "the wizard"?

If Eric Cantor had committed a gaffe like that it would be the most famous thing in America this morning.

First the Republicans came for Big Bird, but I was not a puppet.

Then they came for slutty law students' birth control, but I was not an IUD.

Then they came for all the federal employees, and I was like, "Dude, sweet."

For now she holds the Super Gaffe Trophy formerly held by Sheila Jackson Lee for asking if the MARS Rover was going to go to the spot where the Astronauts put the flag.
