The two latest examples of Democrat ineptitude, incompetence and total math fail come to us from none other than Nancy Pelosi (the best speaker of the house EVAH) and Joe “doll hair” Biden. First up is Nancy Pelosi with both bad math and shameless lies. As Ben Domenech points out at RedState, Pelosi claimed that Obamacare would create (or save!) 4 million jobs with 400,000 of them being created immediately. While no one else could know what was in the bill, before they passed the bill, she was somehow magically able to pull that figure out of her arse. Why? Because it was a total lie. In fact, the bill actually lost Americans nearly 800,000 jobs. (pdf) Eh. Why let pesky old facts and figures get in the way of lies and damn lies? Plus, math is hard anyway.
Telling the truth is difficult too, evidently. If you are a Democrat, at least. Remember, that whole “jobs bill” was also a total fabrication.
The Obama administration, for the second time in two months, interjected itself Monday into an angry local dispute over a proposed Islamic center, warning local officials that opposing the mosque could violate the civil rights of its members and become a federal crime.
The Department of Justice filed court papers Monday in support of construction of a Murfreesboro, Tennessee mosque, saying local Muslims were protected by the First Amendment right to free exercise of religion and disputing opponents claims that Islam is not a valid religion.
In August, President Obama drew fire from conservatives and many New Yorkers when he said people have the right to build a mosque on private properly. The statement so inflamed his detractors that the next day the president stressed he was not necessarily endorsing the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero in New York.
In the Tennessee matter, the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is attempting to build new facilities outside of town to accommodate its growing congregation. It purchased 15 acres for a new 10,000-square foot center, with a worship house, school, a gym and swimming pool. The surrounding area would include a pavilion and cemetery.
Opponents filed suit last month. They charged county officials did not properly notify the community about the proposal, and they argued that Islam is not a valid religion but instead a political cause to force the United States to adopt Muslim laws.

LAS VEGAS — Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County’s electronic voting machines.Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.”Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.”Especially in a community with elderly citizens (they have) difficulty in (casting their) ballot,” Lomax said. “Team leaders said there were complaints (and the) race filled in.”At any time, voters can go back on the screen and review their selections. They are also allowed to make changes and encouraged to double-check their ballot on screen and on paper before it is cast.Lomax said voters need to have faith in the system.”This election, I think, more than ever,” he said. “The two sides are very fractured and each side is suspicious and we’re caught in the middle.”
