information in an attack on Gingrich:
“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told Talking Points Memo. “I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him. Four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”
“I’d like to thank Speaker Pelosi for what I regard as an early Christmas gift. Well, she’s suggesting that she’s going to use material that she developed when she was on the ethics committee. That’s a fundamental violation of rules of the House and I would hope that members would immediately file charges against her the second she does it. I think it tells you how capriciously political that committee was that she was on it. It tells you how tainted the outcome was that she was on it."
Slight problem when your target won't cooperate.
But this afternoon, Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, suggested that her comments have been misconstrued beyond the leader’s intent.
“Leader Pelosi was clearly referring to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware,” Hammill wrote in a statement.
No, she wasn't, and we know it, but this is about the only way to back out open to her without admitting she was going to violate the rules.
Yeah, she is a slimy piece of work, isn't she?'
I don't much care for Gingrich. I just heard a little of the interview he did on Beck's show, and it showed just how much of a DC insider he is(Subsidies have a 'long history, so they're no problem' and other such crap); but he's done something most of the other Stupid Party candidates won't do, which is go after Obama, go after the Democrats, and I think that is a big reason he's shot up in the polls.
