She.Said.What ???

"... But that's not the point. I'm, I'm, I'm investing in something I believe in. I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels." -- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Meet the Press, Aug. 24, 2008
News flash for Ms. Pelosi: Natural gas is a fossil fuel associated with oil, and only obtained by drilling for it. But you oppose drilling, Madame Speaker, don't you? Maybe not:
House Democratic leaders and protesters waving McCain signs had a war of words Tuesday at a press event outside an old train station. The demonstrators interrupted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with chants of “Drill here! Drill now!” Pelosi paused and asked the group, “Right here?” Seeming to enjoy the back and forth, she followed with another question: “Can we drill your brains?” -- Politico, The Crypt
It is difficult to believe the Speaker of the House stooped to such a juvenile, ignorant, insulting response. She apparently believes that drilling someone else's brain would improve her intelligence [or else she believes in torture for her opponents], but denies that drilling for oil would have any effect on price or availability. [Such thin-skinned pique on this issue might indicate the earful the Dhimicrats are getting from constituents in their districts during their recess -- the internal polling must be frightening.]
