Frisco Nan Aims To Be Next House Minority Leader

You cannot make this story up. After having led House Democrats to a 60+ seat loss last Tuesday, California's Nancy Pelosi is demanding to be returned to the leadership of her party's House members.

Of course, most sensible people would have exited the scene, the better to facilitate independent voters forgetting why they swept so many Democrats out of the House last week.

It must be near the height of arrogance for Frisco Nan to insist on staying at the helm for House Democrats, albeit now in the minority. Not to mention stupidity on the part of the remaining Democratic House members who don't think it matters that Nan's antics led them to defeat. Can you get more clueless than that? I don't think so.

Given that the GOP is similarly mistaken in keeping Boehner in their leadership team, they are truly lucky that Nan is eager to remain in the public eye for the next two years. Otherwise, voters might forget why they chose to give control over to the Republicans for a couple of years.
