Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Pelosi: “Can we drill your brains?”

San Fran Nan, as boorish as she is ditzy.  From Politico:

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?”

She went on to refer to the protesters, who continued to chant sporadically, as “handmaidens of Big Oil.” Arguing that increased offshore drilling would reduce gas prices by only a couple of pennies a decade from now, she referred to the demonstrators as the “2-cents-in-10-years-crowd.”

Cut her a little slack for talking about drilling.  She hasn’t been “drilled” since the Nixon administration!  No doubt she thinks that the 70% of Americans who support drilling must need lobotomies, too.

Besides, her “2-cents-in-10-years” is another shining example of that Marxist moonbat’s economic ignorance.  Only a fool would think that talking about drilling would drop the price of oil over $30 a barrel and nearly 50 cents a gallon (which it has, in just over a month) but actually getting oil would reduce the cost of gas by only two cents in a decade.

Her dog-washer Steny Hoyer weighed in, too:

Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer swiped at the demonstrators, too, saying that “sophomoric chanting” won’t solve the energy crisis and that “all thinking Americans know” — stressing the word “thinking” and looking at the crowd — that America doesn’t have a quarter of the word’s fossil fuels yet uses a quarter of the world’s energy.

I wonder if Hoyer considers the 70% of Americans who support drilling as “thinking Americans”.  While “sophomoric chanting won’t solve the energy crisis”, apparently Hoyer thinks that tire gauges and begging the Saudis for more oil will solve it.
