Pelosi’s Proudest Moment as Speaker: Ramming Through That Bill That Helped Get Her Party’s Ass Kicked Last Month


This is a little like Joe Hazelwood saying the proudest moment of his tanker captain career was when he had the honor of covering the Prince William Sound with oil, and that the harbor seals and clams were just too stupid to know what a favor he did for them.

From Politico:

“Every minute is a new minute to me,” says Nancy Pelosi, and, with boxes packed in the hall outside, the soon-to-be former speaker has already jumped ahead to her vision of the “humming, whirling entity” House Democrats can still be in the coming Congress.

“I’m obviously devastated by the loss we had,” she admits. But expect no tears, no retreat on health care reform.

“Nothing compares — in anything I have ever done — with passing the health care bill.”

I don’t disagree, but amazingly enough I think she’s speaking of that with a level of pride instead of embarrassment. That said, nothing says “it’s a good day” like the visual of Nancy Pelosi moving out of the Speaker’s office, does it?

Pelosi’s final favorable rating as Speaker was the lowest it’s ever been. Yeah, America greatly appreciates the really expensive free stuff, Nanc!
