The morning belongs to Pelosi

The first three things that confront me this morning on Yahoo (not my favorite place for news)...

Pelosi to Dems: Back health care bill even if it hurts
[...]"Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program "This Week."
Because we, the great unwashed, have no idea what's good for us.  

Pelosi says GOP has hijacked 'tea party' movement
[...]In a broadcast interview, Pelosi calls tea party voters the "astroturf" movement. She says many of those voters have good intentions but that the Republican Party has hijacked the movement for its gain."
 No Nance - we're the same radical right-wing terrorists bitterly clinging to our guns and religion we've always been.  
The San Francisco Democrat says the tea party coalition shares some common ground with Democrats, such as their dislike of special interests in Washington.
Nancy, other than breathing air, we have almost nothing in common with the Democrats and about half of the Republicans.

Pelosi: Democrats will retain majority in House
[...]The California Democrat says swings in party control of the House have happened when the party in power wasn't ready for elections. She says Democrats have been working hard in Congress but must communicate to voters what they've done.
 Hey Nance - remember that same air we breathe?  I would keep breathing in and out and not try holding your breath.  Just a suggestion.  You've all done a fine, fine job of communicating to us voters what you've done and we're not shopping in your store.

NEVER under-estimate the ability of a politician to rationalize. Nazi Pelousy is a fabulous example.

We all probably know the legal definition of insanity - not having the ability to recognize between right and wrong. But what is the definiton of "seriously disturbed"? Certainly Nazi Pelousy must epitomize the answer.
