Pelosi to run for House minority leader – UPDATE (Video): Happy Days!!!!!

In yet another sign that Democrats seem to be totally clueless about what happened on Tuesday (See: President Obama’s Wednesday press conference and his upcoming Sunday night interview on 60 Minutes), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D. Ca.) has advised her remaining collegues in the House that she will seek the position of House minority leader come January.

Among the reasons cited by Ms. Pelosi is that she is “driven by the urgency of protecting… Medicare.”  No, that’s not a typo, she actually said that.

Sorry folks, but I am compelled to ask, after slashing $500 billion from Medicare earlier this year, is there anything left to protect?

UPDATE (Jim): The Republicans on the other hand are ecstatic about this. Or as AP at HotAir put it .. “Champaign corks a poppin”.

We didn’t get to spray the champagne on Tuesday because, after all, the results weren’t about us. As everyone from Mitch McConnell and John Boehner on down recognizes, the election was, in P.J. O’Rourke’s words, a “restraining order” on the Democrats, not a vote of confidence in the GOP. No corks a-poppin’ under those circumstances, no matter how pleased we might have been with the outcome.

Today, though? Poppin’.

The woman who finally figured out how to create jobs (64 Republican jobs) has decided to stick around. The most loathed legislator (well, now that Grayson is gone) will be around for two more years. I thought that the Republicans might have a tough time adding to their totals, but, this pretty much looks like 2012 will be a great year to run as a Republican. Ya think?

This from National Review, via HotAir. You think the Republicans are happy about this? Check out this picture below. Make sure you click the link to find out who put up the sign.

Makes me think of a song. Well, everything makes me think of a song. Rock on my little mobsters. Rock on! Ehhhhhhhhh!

    To me, that is like the frosting on the cake for this past election.  Just what the Democrats need: a figurehead to remind us of the legislative excesses of the past four years.


    I wonder if they will give her a little plastic hammer to play with?  😉

    Morning, SOS!  Kudos on giving me my first giggle of the day!  🙂

    This is classic Pelosi…she's so delusional as to believe she will remain the dahling of the Democrat party…and yet another perfect example of how a Democrat creates a crisis (slashing $500 billion from medicare) so she can ride in and now rescue the program.  It's all smoke and mirrors.  When she runs for reelection, she won't tell people that it was she who originally slashed it as Speaker of the House, but she who ultimately saved it as House Minority Leader.

    I can't wait til the day comes when she is no longer a member of the House and the only thing she can ruin and rescue will be her own pitiful, daily existence–Instead of ours.

    I have no doubt that she will be minority leader since any dems left from Tuesday are socialists (Rosa DeLauro) If the future of our nation wasn't at stake it would be amusing to watch them twist in the wind. I understand the Fire Pelosi bus now says Hire Pelosi.

    Boehner:  Now stand aside worthy adversary!

    Pelosi:  "Tis but a scratch

    Boehner:  A scratch? Your arm's off!

    Pelosi:  No it isn't.

    Boehner:  What's that then?

    Pelosi:  (after a pause) I've had worse.

    Boehner:  You liar!

    Pelosi:  Come on ya pansy!

    <cite></cite>RoBrDona, Did you get that from a scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail? The wedding scene might more appropriate.

    She will keep the memory of Democrat arrogance alive and in front of the nation as only Obama and she can do for the next 2 years.  ;-D

    The Wicked Witch of the Left has got to GO!!!

    Nancy Pelosi is the embodiment of Everything that's WRONG with the US Government.

    Or perhaps the Mr. Creosote sketch from "The Meaning of Life", where Creosote explodes from all of his excessive behavior.  The parts with him vomiting on the cleaning lady seems to be metaphorical for the way the Democrats treated the voters too!

    Brian, I noticed that after the elections Rush Limbaugh was playing the song "Ding Dong the witch is dead" I never made the connection until now.

    Sadly, the Wicked Witch of the West Coast is still kicking, although the tendency of San Francisco Ballot Boxes to turn up in the bay makes me wonder a little bit.  In other news, John Larsony, chief flying monkey, will also still be in Congress, albeit in a diminished form.

    The queen of ignorant stikes again. She just doesn't get it. It's pretty bad when so many people HATE YOU and never want to see your face or hear your voice again, and you don't even know it.

    She was borm into politics, lives and breaths politics and knows nothing else. And she has lived her life in LA LA LAND.

    What can you expect?    You can't cure stupidity, arrogance and the la la land disease.

    Now that I think about it you are right – the wedding scene is excellent – Lancelot murders most of the guests, thinking the groom is a damsel in distress, (the metaphors abound) but when his "importance" is found out he is invited to stay as guest of honor. Same level of stupidity, horror and comedy.
