Video: Laughter erupts after Dem Congressman claims Social Security "stable"

Actually, what makes this even more funny is that it’s part of Russ Carnahan’s attempt to run against George Bush rather than Republican nominee Ed Martin, who gets the last word in this video. The Daily Caller notes that the debate turned into stand-up comedy (er, perhaps sit-down comedy) when Carnahan tries to claim that he rescued a stable system with no problems from the clutches of Bush’s reformers when he first got to Congress.  It’s left to Martin to then remind everyone that Carnahan and Nancy Pelosi then continued to raid the Social Security fund to pay for the massive spending of the last two Democratic Congresses, and that is, of course, no laughing matter:

The Carnahans look to have a very rough election night in Missouri this year, and this is just one reason why.
