An Insider? Me??
Is there a level of dishonesty that would embarrass Nancy Pelosi? It appears not.
Asked whether she classified herself as a “Washington insider” at a briefing sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Pelosi answered, “Oh, absolutely not. No.”
Who could possibly imagine that a mere 22 years in Congress made the daughter of a “prominent Maryland political family” part of the system? Just because she’s spent her time as Speaker of the House making sure Bush and Cheney get everything they want?
Pressed for an explanation, Pelosi said that being an insider is about a person’s “state of mind,” not their tenure in politics.
“Inside, outside — you have to know the territory so you can work it, but you never become a part of it”, she said.
This kind of dishonesty with herself helps us understand why she’s been so dishonest with us.
Cindy Sheehan for Congress! Honesty, for a change.

Personally I think they've not gone after Bush and impeached him because of fear of the "Clinton effect". (and then there's Cheney lurking in the background to take his place). Clinton's poll number went way up during his impeachment proceedings.
Bush deserves impeachment. Clinton didn't. I'm not sure they've chosen the right course, but I do understand it.
I do wish someone would run against Pelosi other than Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan will probably lose.
Of course Cindy will lose, as would anyone running against the Speaker of the House. The Democrats see San Francisco as an absolute must-win situation in every election, as proven by Navin Gruesome's first run a couple years back, in which both Bill Clinton and Al Gore came to the city and did photo ops with him. He squeaked through that election on absentee ballots; voters who went to the polls on that Tuesday preferred the Green candidate, Matt Gonzalez. If the Democrats lose San Francisco, where's the base of pliant wimp-libs who'll vote for any Democrat no matter how scuzzy?
Let's see, where's Matt Gonzalez now? Oh yeah, he's running for VP, with Nader.
Oh, and my two cents on impeachment: I think the Democrats are not so much fearful as in agreement. Attacking Bush/Cheney would be attacking the Democrats' masters and owners, the war machine.
Bring on the debate as it would be like none other.
the botox has entered her brain.
Clearly, Pelosi has put her political ambitions above the good of the country. That makes her a traitor.
