Nancy Pelosi: "I'm a Crazy Lady Who Can't Be Trusted with Knives or String!!!"

That's a rough translation from the original Gibbering of Lunatics. The original quote was even crazier.

Throughout a 50-minute interview on Thursday in her second-floor Capitol office, where the late Speaker Tip O’Neill used to receive supplicants, Pelosi was sharply derisive about the scorn Republicans have for this president.

“You know why it is,” she said. “You know why it is. He’s brilliant, … he thinks in a strategic way in how to get something done … and he’s completely eloquent. That’s a package that they don’t like.”…

Then she added a line that she has used before, that drives Republicans batty: “He has been … open, practically apolitical, certainly nonpartisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution. I think that’s one of the reasons the Republicans want to take him down politically, because they know he is a nonpartisan president, and that’s something very hard for them to cope with.”

"Doesn't she look tired to you?" asked the Doctor.

Someone's been poppin' Molly, I think.

I'll direct you to Hot Air for that video as well as his take on this... whatever this is. I hesitate to call it a "claim." It's more like a random collection of words on Boggle score sheet.

But I have to steal something. I hate linking Politico but whatever.

The 'meh' of a salesman

Barack Obama has still never really sold the American people on anything but himself.

For Obama supporters, the question has become frustrating and frequent: how can the man and the team who made a freshman senator the country’s first black president, and kept people with him despite Great Depression-level unemployment, have failed to truly turn public opinion around on a single difficult issue?

Twice, they turned Candidate Obama into a movement. But they haven’t been able to turn President Obama into more than an inclination.

The question couldn’t be more pressing...

“It’s profound, is what it is,” said Paul Begala...

It is now September 2013, shading into October. We are five years into this man's two terms as president.

Politico has just noticed.

Oh, and speaking of non-partisan.


With Washington facing a potential government shutdown, President Obama traveled to the heartland Friday and delivered a combative rebuke of congressional Republicans for “trying to mess with me” instead of governing responsibly.

Obama railed at length against Republican lawmakers, whom he accused of “holding the economy hostage” by threatening not to fund the government and not to raise the government’s debt limit.

...

Obama at times sought to belittle GOP lawmakers. “The most basic constitutional duty Congress has is to pass a budget,” said the president, a former constitutional law lecturer. “That’s Congress 101."

What? Did he just even...?

Thanks to Zach for that last one.
