One of my more amusingly disjointed readers pointed out, in a comment, a falsehood stated by Nancy Pelosi. I agreed with him. (These things happen.) I wonder what he thinks about this -- possibly the most laughable comment and clarification ever made by any politician, ever:

"Not intended to be a factual statement." In the well of the Senate, defending the indefensible willingness of teabaggRs to shut down the government over funding an agency that provides vital health care services, the number two Republican senator asserts unequivocally something so wrong that, like looking at Medusa, you should turn to stone upon hearing it; and then claims it was "not intended to be a factual statement.
