Instapundit has noted how many times the word "unexpected" is bandied about by the Administration:

Initial claims for jobless benefits rise unexpectedly
New home sales fall unexpectedly
Jobless claims rise unexpectedly--again
Employers cut jobs in December--unexpectedly
Housing sales drop unexpectedly
New housing starts fall to record lows unexpectedly
US consumer prices were unexpectedly flat

I'm sure Scott Brown's win in Massachusetts was unexpected, too.

If you want to tie in more unexpected reactions, note how many times commentary by the president on expenditures or actions by Congress to spend more are followed by freefall in the stock market. Cause and effect, anyone, anyone?
