A late edition to the State of the Union comments. I've noticed several neocon sites that called Nancy Pelosi "rude... disrespectful... childish" for reading at times during the State of the Union Borefest Address.
I just wanted to point out to anyone who may still be feeling that way that she wasn't reading the latest Stephen King book or a steamy novel of romance and intrigue. She was, of course, just following along with the written copy - that everyone there got - of the address. Others there were seen from time to time thumbing through it, as well. Personally I don't see what the big deal would be from that. Oh wait, that's right. The neocons don't need for something to be a big deal in order to MAKE something a big deal so as to have something to snipe about. I guess they were running out of shallow things, like her looks, to make cracks about.
If anything, I have to wonder why she would even WANT to read along with the address. Perhaps it's with the purpose of determining "could he really be saying all the bullshit that I think I'm hearing?" Or maybe she's just used to turning pages when dealing with fairy tales.
A more appropriate thing for her to read during a George Bush address would probably be:
