It seems that Teddy Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi couldn't take the time to check their figures before jumping in front of television cameras today to protest President Bush "duping" Congress over the cost of Medicare's prescription drug program. They both expressed outrage over a $1.2 trillion figure for ten years of presciption drug coverage. As it turns out the actual figure is $724 billion, but not having a firm grasp on mathematics or the patience to let someone work a calculator for them, they both embarrassed themselves on camera. Ever seen two people so eager to whine?
