Political Quote of the Day

Honestly, you just can't make up this kind of stuff. . .  fact is stranger than fiction.

Yesterday on ABC's This Week, host Christiane Amanpour asked Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):

"You are, by all accounts, one of the most -- if not the most -- powerful and successful speakers of -- in the history of the United States. You've passed so much legislation. The President was elected with a significant majority. You had control of both houses of Congress. And yet now, people are talking about you might lose your majority in the House. The gap seems to be growing wider between what's achieved and what's making an impact with the people. How did this happen? did you get to this place where, perhaps, you might lose your majority?"

Pelosi responded: "We don't see it that way. We are very proud of the agenda that we have put forth to the American people."

And what comes before the fall?  I think it's pride.
