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 protestors, who continued to chant sporadically, as “handmaidens of Big Oil.”
I crave video, that together we might cherish the obligatory look of satisfaction on her face after she delivered that titanic slam, but I can’t find any. Rule one when heckling slow-witted Democratic politicians: Always bring a camera. And speaking of dimwits with cameras, if you missed Sherrod Brown’s infomercial during the convention last night, you really should treat yourself. McCain’s blog has a clip. It’ll drill your brain.
