It is always easy to spot the breitbart.com fans in the office:
1) They all subscribe to the "Nancy Pelosi as ultimate evil librul WITCH" theory - despite Pelosi being an ordinary centrist Democrat. Which is to say, a bit to the left of the DLC/Third Way, a bit more to the left of the neoliberals: just about at the median of US voters.
2) They have no understanding of how a legislature that intends to endure for many years and which uses parliamentary rules of procedure, actually works
3) They have no understanding of what the Speaker of the House's job actually is.
Pelosi is, to be sure, a very good political manager (and therefore a very effective Speaker of the House). Perhaps that is what makes her unforgivable compared to Boehner and - particularly - Cruz.
