Pelosi, let me count the ways thou art annoying..

Nancy Pelosi helpfully enumerates the various reasons why her political opponents find her to be annoying:

If you can't win on policy, then you go to process. If you can't win on process, then you go to personality. And that's how they have decided they would make up stories about me and the rest

The only point of editing that I would offer is that it's possible to multitask and dislike her on all three accounts simultaneously in parallel versus sequentially in series.

What stories are Pelosi's polticial opponents "making up" about her? The fact that she abuses the privilege of USAF flights for boondoggle trips?

The speaker doth protest too much:

There seems to -- some people think there seems to be a market for saying that I am very partisan, and that I don't give the Republicans their opportunity. That simply is not true.

No, she's not very partisan. She is the most partisan member of the House since Preston Brooks .

He was attacked on the Senate floor by pro-slavery Democratic congressman, Preston Brooks, who stormed the Senate side of the Capitol and tried to beat Sumner to death with his cane because he dared to introduce yet another piece of anti-slavery legislation.

HillBuzz engages in more Pelosi mockery:

Nancy Pelosi has claimed, “I am not partisan” in a recent interview.

Here are a few other things Pelosi can claim not to be with equal credulity:

“I am not a terrible author who writes books that can only be described as skunk-juice-drenched.”

“I am not someone who wears far too much makeup and believes lipstick should go around the lips, not on them.”
