I Think We’re Working at Cross Purposes Here

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

The New York Times opposes Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader. It also has it in for Harry Reid (nice of you joining that campaign now):

If Ms. Pelosi had been a more persuasive communicator, she could have batted away the ludicrous caricature of her painted by Republicans across the country as some kind of fur-hatted commissar jamming her diktats down the public’s throat. Both Ms. Pelosi and Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, are inside players who seem to visibly shrink on camera when defending their policies, rarely connecting with the skeptical independent voters who raged so loudly on Tuesday.

The Corner

The one and only.
