Attacks from the republican party on Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi are standard fare. However, earlier this week, republicans stepped over the line even for them. More from Huffingtonpost.com
The National Republican Congressional Committee on Tuesday mocked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for daring to question Gen. Stanley McChrystal.
“General Pelosi has no problem sacrificing her own credibility as the Obama administration and liberals in Congress attempt to walk back a strategy they strongly advocated just months ago,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “Nancy Pelosi continues to make party politics a higher priority than our national security. Rather than listening to a four-star general’s assessments on Afghanistan, General Pelosi somehow believes she is better suited to craft our country’s military policy.”
If Nancy Pelosi’s failed economic policies are any indicator of the effect she may have on Afghanistan, taxpayers can only hope McChrystal is able to put her in her place.
For whatever reason, the NRCC did not criticize Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) who called McChrystal’s recent public statement “pretty odd.”
“I think the place for a woman is at the top of the House of Representatives,” responded Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.): “It’s evidence [Republicans] long for the days when a woman’s place was in the kitchen. Now a woman is third in line for the presidency… But it’s not surprising, coming from a party that’s 80 percent male and 100 percent white.”
Speaker Pelosi had this response for Ken Spain and the NRCC.
Is Spain channeling Lumpybag?
Over in the Senate it is SSDD.
Does anyone else think that McConnell looks like a turtle?
John posted this tube earlier in my last diary. He called it the GOP anthem. It seems more like their fight song to me.
The pugs are anti-cheerleaders and Groucho’s song is a very fitting theme song for GOP.

Leave it to Billo. He thinks liberals are jealous because Bachmann and Palin give him a hard-on? I hate to break it to you dude, but I have not met one liberal who finds either Backmann or Palin hawt. But you do reveal yourself again.
