Pelosi: 'We won!'

Nancy Pelosi's analysis of how the Democrats fared on election night is priceless. Not only did Madam Speaker actually dig deeply into the manure pile to find that pony, but she shamelessly lied twice in the process.

Jim Hoft:

They lost the Virginia gubanatorial race by 18 points in a state Barack Obama won by 6 points last year.
They lost the New Jersey gubanatorial race by 4 points in a state Barack Obama won by 15 pointslast year.

But, facts don't matter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi
She celebrated today saying, "We won last night."
"From our perspective, we won last night," the California Democrat told reporters during a Wednesday photo op. "We had one race that we were engaged in, it was in northern New York, it was a race where a Republican has held the seat since the Civil War. And we won that seat. So, from our standpoint, no, a candidate was victorious who supports health care reform, and his remarks last night said this was a victory for health care reform and other initiatives for the American people."

She's still ready to ram that nationalized health care bill through the House this week.

UPDATE: 2 lies in 1 statement.
As pointed out below. Democrat Bill Owens campaigned against the public option.
Pelosi was lying.

And, Democrat Michael R. McNulty represented NY-23 from 1989-1993.
But, it sounds better when you say "the first time since the Civil War."

It appears that the Speaker of the House is auditioning for Disney's remake of Pollyanna. Or maybe Pinocchio. Perhaps not the latter since she's had so many surgeries on her nose, instead of growing whenever she tells a lie it would probably fall off.

I really envy people who can go to that special, make believe fantasy place in their minds when life deals you a horrible blow. No doubt if Ms. Pelosi actually confronted what happened to her party on Tuesday night, her head would have been in danger of exploding.

I guess we'll have to wait for that spectacle until health care reform goes down to defeat.
