From the “Women are Children” department

I’m not saying it couldn’t have been said better, but I doubt it could have been said any more accurately:

“I think the fact that I am a woman will raise expectations in terms of more hope in government, and I will not disappoint…The gavel of the speaker of the House is in the hands of special interests, and now it will be in the hands of America’s children.”
– Nancy Pelosi

Ah yes, no doubt she lays claim to that integrity which belongs to the innocent. I find myself rather hoping that Pelosi becomes Speaker of the House as she will no doubt supply ample amounts of blogfodder.

If we could only rely on her to stick to her timetable for proposing a plan for governance, I would even endorse her. Unfortunately, it’s pretty clear that her proposals will revolve around longer recess and extra chocolate milk for everyone in the cafeteria.
