Nancy Drew She Ain't
Incoming (as in artillery) Squeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Haight-Ashbury, 100%), responds to a press conference by President Bush. First the president:
"There's a lot of sectarian violence taking place [in Iraq], fomented, in my opinion, because of these attacks by al Qaeda, causing people to seek reprisal," Bush said. "And we will work with the Maliki government to defeat these elements."
Now from the same article, we have the response by Nancy Pelosi, second in succession to the presidency (and who Rich Galen of Mullings fame has taken to calling "Pelosium-2007," evidently confusing her with the Polonium-210 that was used to assassinate former Russian spy turned dissident Alexander Litvinenko). After hearing Bush discuss the violence fomented in large part by al-Qaeda in Iraq, the group formerly headed by Musab Zarqawi (until we finally killed him), and now by Hamza Muhajir, the divine Ms. P. opines:
"My thoughts on the president's representations are well-known," Pelosi said. "The 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the president is resorting to it again."
Blink. Blink blink.
Can it really be true that Nancy Pelosi has never heard of Zarqawi, Muhajir, and al-Qaeda in Iraq, hence misunderstood Bush to be talking about the larger al-Qaeda run by Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri?
For some reason I can't put my finger on, this reminds me of the scene in the movie the Shining, where Shelly Duvall (Olive Oyl) discovers that the entire manuscript of the book that Jack Nicholson (the Joker) has been writing for months consists of nothing but "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," repeated thousands and thousands of times... you know, that moment of frisson when we realize that old Jack didn't just go insane... he's been a stark, raving lunatic for months -- and Duvall has been sleeping right next to him that whole time.
I don't know why this latest Pelosi escapade brought that scene to mind. Never mind, forget I even brought it up.

» How's that war on terror going? from Right Truth
If Iraq is the central front in the global war on terror, just how does that seem to be going? On the surface, thanks to the MSM, things look bad ... really bad. But over the past two weeks we [Read More]

Ah but Dafydd, surely you know that the Democrats don't have to be factually accurate. It is enough that their hearts are in the right place and they feel our pain. Accuracy or intelligence is neither required, nor wanted. Only empathy. After all, she felt sad. What more can you ask of her?
The following hissed in response by: Don
Speaking of the 9/11 Commission recommendations. You know, the ones which Speaker Nan's party promised to implement in full?
Turns out they don't wish to after all. The House of Representatives apparently is going to forego major structural changes in House oversigt of intelligence.
I guess now that the evil republicans are out of power and the good folks are in - no changes are necessary....
Why am I unsurprised?
