Update and bumped: Mandatory assignment! Go to Gateway Pundit and watch the clip of Dennis Miller talking to Leno (I think there's some kind of trouble with Gateway this morning; try the original source, Breitbart TV). A sample: "Every time I see Pelosi handling that gavel as Speaker of the House...it's like being Charlton Heston and waking up in the field and seeing the chimp on top of the pony."
Ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi [Lord, how I love writing that!] has convinced herself that the Democratic wipe-out in the House is not her fault, that it's due to the larger economic environment or Republican skull-duggery or sunspots or something. No way her strong-arm tactics advancing the cause of an ever-more bloated federal government had anything to do with the Democrat crop failure this election cycle.
"I am big. It's the electorate that got small."
