The Wit and Wisdom of Fred Thompson

I’m not sure if anyone cares anymore what Fred Thompson says these days, but Sarah Palin thought this gem was worth retweeting:

Obama Econ Adviser: spend more stimulus money. Bet she repeatedly pushes the elevator button trying to make it come faster, too.

I guess that’s that. The economy simply can’t be stimulated, no how no way, and Christina Romer is just some birdbrain who doesn’t understand how machinery works. Better get used to being unemployed, folks.

Of course, what Romer really wants to do is reopen one of the elevator banks that’s been out of commission for a while and replace some of the broken magnets for the motors so they run a little closer to their normal speed, which would get more people to their destinations faster than before. Maybe she understands machinery a little better than Fred thinks?
