Pelosi to Cheney: Up Yours!

Think Progress:
Pelosi beats back Cheney smear.
Vice President Cheney today on Iraq redeployment: “I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we’ll do is validate the al Qaeda strategy.” Pelosi responds: “Vice President Cheney continues to question the patriotism of those of us in Congress who challenge the Bush Administration’s misguided policies in Iraq, but his latest attack is beneath the office of the Vice President, especially at a time of war.”

not bad, but what she should have said was "oh, you've validated the al Qaeda strategy plenty much, thanx for that, DICK."

i would presume you've seen the peter bergen studies on the increase of terror world wide.

and that post below just burns me up. support the troops my ass.

Hmmph. Pelosi did exactly what she needed to do, using precisely the words she needed to use. She has political skills beyond anything Dick ever dreamed of. Of course, she probably can't cuss people out as well, or hide information as effectively, and she has probably never shot anyone in the face...

Thanks, charley, I will google Peter Bergen. I've heard the stats, just not gone into depth.

Pelosi is becoming my newest heroine, Steve. She does have political skills that neither Bush nor Cheney have. But then again...if beating the fear drum is all you have, you don't have much.

Nice to see someone call Cheney on his BS. Of course, it would be nice if the MSM actually covered this as much as they cover the non-scandal that is 'Pelosi One'

The airplane/Pelosi thing kinda died on the vine, thank Anna Nicole Smith. Pelosi seems to be handling these things well because she can't relax for a minute. The Republicans will be looking for weakness 24/7.
