Pelosi Angered By 'Unconscionable' & Unconstitutional Decision Yesterday...to Place Holder in Contempt

"We all take our responsibilities seriously here, and one of them, first and foremost is to support and uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave an impassioned, angry plea from the floor of the House  yesterday during the vote to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of congress. She threw out words such as "unbelievable" "unconscionable" and "so wrong," and ultimately refered to the actions of Darrel Issa as an  "abuse of power."

Pelosi then lectured the chamber on the proper uses of the Constitution:

"We all take our responsibilities seriously here, and one of them, first and foremost is to support and uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.  That constitution requires the congress and the executive branch to avoid unnecessary conflict and seek accommodation and support both interests.  We are not upholding that aspect of the  Constitution here."

In the wake of current events, the lecture seemed starkly macabre.
