Scary Pelosi and the 2nd "Stimulus"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she is open to introducing a second stimulus bill, but it's too early to determine the size of such a package and the timing on another major economic measure. “We have to keep the door open to see how it goes,” Pelosi told reporters Tuesday following a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing on the economy.

This can mean:

- She is admitting that the first "stimulus," which was nothing more than a transparently packaged Liberal grab-bag of take-advantage spending, does nothing to address the actual problems in our economy,

- She has an entirely new list of pet Liberal projects that she wants to fund before the economy fixes itself, thereby losing further opportunity to "not let a crisis go to waste,"

- She is a complete and total idiot that does not know or care what the eventual results of this unconstrained spending spree are going to be.

Me? I vote for all three.
