In an interview with ABCs Bill Weir yesterday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked what was going through her mind earlier this month when she seemed to recoil when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid put his arm around her at a news conference following a White House meeting.
The moment -- which prompted a fresh round of speculation about Pelosi-Reid tensions -- had nothing to do with her relationship with Reid, Pelosi said.
Pelosi, D-Calif., praised Reid as a great leader in the United States Senate. But she said she didnt much care for his statement that whatever decision you make [on Afghanistan], well support it, basically.
I was more reacting to what he was saying than his arm on my shoulder, Pelosi said. He was saying that we were all going to support whatever the president said about troops to Afghanistan, and which, well, remains to be seen until we see what the president puts forth. We certainly respect the deliberative process the president is going through. I'll know how serious the decision is.

Sure thing, Stretch. Sure thing.
I believe her, she’s saying she is a such a total low life leftist that she won’t support the president if he chooses to support the troops.
This statement concerns me far more than her dislike of Harry Reid. We truly are being ruled by radicals.
Well, that and Mr. Reid has the body odor of an incontinent yak.

It’s a lot of things, really. It’s Afghanistan; Harry is repulsive; she’s a lesbian. Lots of reasons.

I’ve never been introduced to that... particular pleasure; apparently you have.
Thanks for taking one for the team, so you could explain Eau de Reid in terms we might understand.
That is the proposal that Senator Kennedy advanced in his bill that he wrote before he left us, Pelosi said. So, we had a robust public option and a relatively robust public option. Either one would keep the insurance companies honest through competition.
I know I wouldn't want to get all my good ideas from someone in the last stages of brain cancer. That's just me.
Well, you can’t really blame a lesbian Catholic heretic from shrinking away a little from a hug by a gay Mormon heretic. It’s not as if she could help her reaction. It’s an instinct thing.
Someone had to do it. ;p
Very descriptively sensative...NOT! LOL!
