Pelosi: Happy New Year, Peasants! Oh, and feel free to die in a fire.

Allahpundit is right:  this is the perfect way for Nancy Pelosi to end her tenure as Speaker of the House.  Paternalistic?  Check.  Arrogant?  Check.  Detached from reality?  Checky-check-check-check.

And so our shameless, reckless, intrusive, imperious, and borderline-tyrannical 111th Congress slimes its way across the finish line without a hint of regret or introspection.  Here’s hoping that there’s enough time to undo the damage they did before the country collapses under the weight of all the debt.
