Stupid statement of the week award goes to...

NOT Nancy Pelosi, although she did come in very close with her rather amazing remark:

“Science is a gift of God to all of us and science has taken us to a place that is biblical in its power to cure,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, arguing for the bill’s passage. “And that is the embryonic stem cell research.”

Close, but not cigar, Nancy. Stupid, yes, but the East Coast Guy beat you out.

The Pew Lady's choice for Stupid Statement of the Week goes to Connecticut Democatic Representative Christopher Murphy. And without further ado, we have his quote:

::::::::: drum roll :::::::::

“Being pro-life is about more than caring for the unborn. It’s about caring for the living as well.”

Can anybody top this statement in the stupidity category?

I've tried, but this is all I can come up with:

"Being a woman is about more than the ability to give birth. It's about being able to impregnate as well."

Did I come close?

Or maybe this one is a bit more obvious:

"Being an athlete is about more than caring about winning. It's about caring about being victorious as well."

Give it a go if you can!
