Whenever the day seems dark and cheerless, I have only to listen for the dulcet tones of Nancy Pelosi’s melodious voice wafting upon the news wires to give me a good belly laugh.

Today was one of those days and, sure enough, “Speaker 14 Percent” delivered. Twice!

On the way into the Democratic National Convention, she was beset by people chanting “Drill now!”. Summoning up both her clever brain cells, she fired back a bon mot that clanged to the ground like a manhole cover dropped off the Empire State Building.

House Democratic leaders and protesters waving McCain signs had a war of words Tuesday at a press event outside an old train station. The demonstrators interrupted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with chants of “Drill here! Drill now!”

Pelosi paused and asked the group, “Right here?”

Seeming to enjoy the back and forth, she followed with another question: “Can we drill your brains?”

She went on to refer to the protestors, who continued to chant sporadically, as “handmaidens of Big Oil.” [Emphasis Mine]

Woo! That sure took the wind out of their sails, huh? My guess is that the protesters went instantly silent as they tried to figure out if Nancy Pelosi had suddenly been replaced by a five year-old kid.

Then they scattered lest she bring them low with yet another of her caustic retorts like “I know you are, but what am I? ” or “Nanny, nanny boo boo! Soak your head in poo poo!”. Alas there is no video available right now because the protesters didn’t adhere to Allah’s “[r]ule one when heckling slow-witted Democratic politicians: Always bring a a camera“.

Things did not get less entertaining once she got into the Convention.

There she gave a rousing speech where she told the assembled faithful that she just knew that this election would be a blowout win for the Democrats, even though every single poll taken since Barack Obama was named the presumptive nominee shows a very close race. Her “logic” is that the polls only spoke to “likely voters” and, as we know, the only polls that should matter are the ones that poll people who are so incredibly excited by the Obamessiah that they can’t even tell a pollster that they do indeed plan on voting in November. Really, folks, that’s pretty much all it takes to become a “likely voter”. You don’t have to have voted in the past two elections. You don’t even have to have voted at all (in fact, Gallup actually gives you credit if you’re never voted before).

I swear, Nancy Pelosi may be the dumbest Speaker of the House in the history of this country excepting perhaps that three day period in June, 1978 when Tip O’Neill got so drunk that he sent an empty bottle of Dewars to the House floor to “take over for him until I stop praying to the porcelain god”.*

    LOL- I heard about this yesterday. As much as I despise her and she can usually send my blood pressure soaring, I just had to laugh at this one. What a twit.

    [...] that can’t be right. Nancy Pelosi cannot have respond to the rather heavy dose of correction she received from various and sundry Bishops and Cardinals, some of her colleagues in Congress and [...]
