Pelosi: Voting Against Boehner To “Save Life On This Planet As We Know It”

Nancy Pelosi told an adoring press that she’s casting her vote against the plan to raise the debt ceiling in an attempt to avert possible default “to save life on this planet as we know it today.”

Just so long as we’re not using inflamed, hyperbolic rhetoric, because that somehow gets people shot or is racist or something.

Beltway establishment Republican Bill Kristol wonders what’s so great about life on this planet today that’s worth saving.

Why? What’s so great about life on this planet as we know it today? Let liberals defend the status quo. We conservatives seek to improve life on this planet. If I could paraphrase Bobby Kennedy: There are those, like Nancy Pelosi, who look at things the way they are, and ask why. We dream of things that never were–like reducing domestic discretionary spending, year over year–and ask why not!

Kristol.  “We conservatives.” Heh.
