Sullivan on Pelosi

Andrew Sullivan takes Pelosi to task on her intelligence (or the lack thereof).

I think we can all agree that Pelosi isn't necessarily stupid. I mean, I'm guessing she does not actually believe that George Bush = High Gas Prices, in a cause and effect manner, despite repeating "cause and effect" twice.

More likely what she's doing is trying to make a cheap political point by playing to the lowest common denominator of peoples' intelligence.

What's most annoying about stuff like this, on both the right and the left, is that politicians seem to expect so little from us. Maybe we don't deserve a real debate, with an actual "cause and effect" argument, but wouldn't that be nice?
