I Rise from the Torpor of my Sickbed to Praise Nancy Pelosi
"We might as well stop till Pelosi shows up," the President said, "because she's the one with the balls."
This is, of course, somewhat unfair, and I give the President great credit for finally putting his nose into the Republicans' quivering gut and driving them into their own backfield, creating stumbles and fumbles --metamorphosis! new sports metaphor coming out!
But I certainly read several places that it was Pelosi who fanned the Prez with a towel as he sat bruised in his corner and threatened to make Rahm Emmanuel drink the spit bucket when the White House got shaky after Scott Brown's senate win in Massachusetts. (It's a bird! It's a plane! It's yet another sports analogy!)
Thank you, Nancy. That was no lady. That was Pelosi.
