Well, she’s a “Constitutional scholar”, not a mathematician…

It takes a strong stomach to wade through the bilge of the Cryptkeepers daughter but, hey, someone has to do it. Hence we get this from Feral Republican™ and Chlamydia Poster Girl, Ann Coulter:

California is, in fact, a perfect petri dish of Democratic policies. This is what happens when you let Democrats govern: You get a state – or as it’s now known, a “job-free zone” – with a $38 billion deficit, which is larger than the budgets of 48 states. There are reports that Argentina and the Congo are sending their fiscal policy experts to Sacramento to help stabilize the situation.

Ahem.

The shocking mix of fiscal madness and duplicity President Bush unveiled on July 15 with his updated budget is more than depressing. It shows this Bush to be a thousand times less responsible a national steward than his father.

The deterioration in the nation’s fiscal outlook since Bush took office is stunning. In April 2001 the Bush White House forecast a surplus of $334 billion for this year. On July 15 it announced the deficit would instead be $455 billion.

That’s a swing of $789 billion in just two years. Bush says next year the deficit will rise to $478 billion — and that’s before taking full account of the ongoing costs of Iraq and Afghanistan. Over a decade, the change from the projected surpluses Bush inherited to the deficits he now expects is roughly $9 trillion.

This is for Ann:

$38 billion $ 38,000,000,000

$9 trillion $9,000,000,000,000

As they say…you do the math.
