Nancy Pelosi: "I Will Still Be Speaker In Five Weeks"
Ace: "No shit? Me too!"

We're all going to be Speaker of the House, Nancy. It will be so much fun!!11!!

When Nancy Pelosi sat down for her keynote address at Women@NBCU’s annual Power of the Purse Breakfast this morning at Cipriani’s in New York, host Jeff Zucker wasted no time getting her take on the state of politics this year. Specifically, the outgoing NBC Universal CEO and president asked if Pelosi herself would still be in office in five weeks.

“I will still be Speaker in five weeks,” she said. “I have big confidence in my candidates. They’re excellent; they’re battle-tested. They know what they believe, and they’re doing just fine in their districts.”

This is one of those uncomfortable moments when you're speaking to a crazy-person and they're getting all agitated and insistent and they say, "I will be Speaker of the House. You believe me, don't you?"

And you resort to that thing you know is just going to make them come at you with scissors, but what else can you say? "I believe that you believe that, Nancy."

Yeah that doesn't work with crazy-people. They've heard that. That one thing isn't fooling them. Their senses fool them, but not the "I believe that you believe" thing. We should probably retire that one.

Nancy Pelosi For Speaker of the House

And also -- for Cowboy Spaceman! And also -- for Dinosaur!!!


You Know Who Doesn't Believe Nancy Pelosi Will Be Speaker? Senate Democrats. "The House is lost; you have to save the Senate."

House and Senate Democrats are increasingly competing against one another over a small universe of deep-pocketed donors who could make a financial difference in the final stretch before the midterm elections.

In some cases, donors report that they are being urged to fund Senate campaigns at the expense of the House, where Democrats are in danger of losing their majority.

One House Democratic fundraiser said that some Senate operatives are telling big donors and union officials, “The House is lost; you have to save the Senate.”

John Dennis For Congress! He wants to give granny a nice retirement.
