Another Day, Another Zsa Zsa Slapdown

You’d think the Queen of The House of Preening Moonbats would learn that what passes for “politically savvy” bloviation on the celebrity cocktail party circuit–or Billy Maher’s show [ed note: there’s a difference?]–will get her kicked to the curb when she tries peddling her uninformed, knee-jerk BS to people who are actually knowledgeable about the subject being discussed….

Oh, who am I kidding? She’s too dense to ever learn when she should just STFU.

Appearing on Sunday’s “This Week” on ABC, Huffington foolishly claimed that Supreme Court justices John Paul Stevens and David Souter would never be appointed by a Republican President today due to “how far the Party has traveled,” obviously meaning to the Right.

All three of her fellow Roundtable panelists were quick to correct her flawed logic beginning with Sam Donaldson (video follows with partial transcript, relevant section at 9:20):

Another of Nancy’s Little Nuggets is Unearthed

Nancy Pelosi wasn’t kidding when she said, “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” Since uttering that sentence, we have indeed learned about some of the things tucked away in that monstrosity. We are also being shown what the future likely holds for this national plan, by observing what is going on in the state whose health care “reform” plan was used as an ObamaCare blueprint; it ain’t pretty.

Cap’n Ed over at Hot Air has previously shown how the particulars buried in this train wreck of a bill will put the hammer to small businesses, America’s best hope for pushing back against the country’s unemployment crisis. Recently, CNN reported on another hidden, job-killing ‘gem’:

Women across America have felt uncomfortable in public situations when breastfeeding their children. Sarah Hood of Fayetteville, Arkansas, who works in advertising, got stares when breastfeeding her son in the open.

Working mothers like Nahar and Hood have had to carefully tailor their schedules so that they can pump milk in the middle of the day, and avoid stares when they put bottles in the communal refrigerators. Some have to use a bathroom stall to pump milk, as there is no other space available.

Nursing mothers will now get additional support, thanks to page 1239 of the health care bill that President Obama recently signed into law. It requires employers to provide “a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from co-workers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk.” Only companies with less than 50 employees can claim it’s an undue hardship.

If you run a small business, like the pizza chain in Cap’n Ed’s example, what are the odds you’re going to expand the number of people you employ when you will face that kind of an unfunded mandate? When you reach the 50 souls threshold, and are required, by law, to construct this “place” at your business’s location–regardless, the wording implies, whether you even employ any women who could potentially take advantage of this requirement–doesn’t bottom line logic demand you restrict your company’s growth by capping your head count at 49?
