House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has made some incredibly naive, ill-informed and downright goofy statements before but her comment yesterday about why House Democrats oppose House Speaker John Boehner's debt-ceiling crisis bill surely must take the cake for absurdity:
“What we're trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget. We're trying to save life on this planet as we know it today,” Pelosi said.
But equally interesting is the fact that as of noon today you can do a search for those words on the web sites of The Washington Post, The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times and come up empty on all three.
I'm sure it must be coincidental.
