Like the email John mentions below, there are ample other reasons to wonder about Nancy Pelosi’s probity. I’ve always heard that she is very skillful at the back-room aspects of party management in the House, and she better be, because when she opens her mouth to speak, you can expect a disaster that could make even John Kerry cringe.
