Pelosi’s gesture

As everyone in the universe must know by now, Nancy Pelosi tore in half her copy of the State of the Union address last night when the speech was over.

The kindest thing I’ve read about the gesture is that it was “rude,” and I suppose that it was. But, then, it was a speech so relentlessly dishonest, so rife with lies, exaggerations, and misappropriations of credit, that it deserved exactly the contempt it got from Pelosi. The speech was an insult to informed Americans, and I can’t help but admire Pelosi for publicly expressing her offense.
