Pelosi is getting so scared she is trying to say the Democrats are like the Tea Party protestors. HAHAHAHA

Only the most arrogant would rate themselves an A, and she does this when the congress is rated around 14

"And that's why I've fought the special interest, whether it's on energy, whether it's on health insurance, whether it's on pharmaceuticals and the rest."

She is a champion in fighting special interests in D.C. I didn't know that.

It's like she was chasing a fly with a baseball bat thru the house, destroying lamps, wall hangings and windows , but she still gives herself an "A" for effort.

In her mind, lobbyists who do not believe man-made global warming is a threat to the planet, are special interest groups. Goups like the Sierra Club or Green Peace who lobby for cap and trade and global warming legislation are not viewed by Pelosi as special interest groups.

She is a nutcase for sure. I am waiting for the left wingers to start calling her a teabagger. I am sure they will embrace the term now that Pelosi is trying to jump on the bandwagon out of fear. There is nothing she won't do or try to twist to her benefit. This play will never work.

It looks like the U.S. Tea Party spawned the U.K. Tea Party. Maybe it will sweep the globe. People everywhere, not just in the U.S., dislike and distrust their government.

If the Tea Party movement gains in momentum like that, Nancy is bound to get on board with both feet. At the moment, she's just testing to see "if the shoe fits".

Good luck to Pelosi there...
here is a link to the Tea Party event in England - The Brighton Tea Party

Looks like the idea was just testing the waters to me...expect more of them from what it sounds like:
