Pelosi Presser

I missed a big chunk of Nancy Pelosi’s press briefing and it didn’t look like she was doing too great. But the details aside, I think the big picture is pretty clear—Pelosi and other congressional Democrats weren’t exactly profiles in courage on this stuff, but insofar as you want to ding them for not objecting forcefully enough to what the Bush administration was doing, you obviously need to ding the people actually doing the doing with more severity.
