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.

The Weekly Standard describes this as “beyond disturbing.”  It most certainly is.  I want to hope that this attitude isn’t reflective of the MSM as a whole, but I fear I’d only be kidding myself.
