It looks like I spoke too soon. I saw this link on Drudge yesterday, but CNN had conveniently removed it. (I wonder why?) It seems that Nancy Pelosi, not content to completely annihilate her party before January, gave it one more kick in the head:

Asked by a reporter about how “President Bush today blamed the surge of violence in Iraq on al Qaeda,” incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded with a disjointed answer about how “the 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the President is resorting to it again."

What? Two things here: 1) the 9/11 Commission said that there was no link between 9/11 and Iraq, but made explicit the connections between Iraq and al Qaeda. 2) Anyone who thinks al Qaeda is not operating in Iraq now is going to have some trouble going along with Democratic talking points (and reality).

Pelosi is making it too easy. Does she not realize what she's doing to her party?
