Pelosi: Can We Drill Your Brains?

Posted: Aug 26, 2008 4:19 PM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "jokingly" asked protesters who were chanting "Drill here, drill now!" "can we drill your brains?" en route to the convention floor today.

(Insert Botox joke here.)

She also nicknamed the protesters "handmaidens of Big Oil" and the "two-cents-in-ten-years-crowd." Her buddy Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer added that “sophomoric chanting” won’t do much to bring energy costs down or create supply.
