Rick Perry continues his assault on Congress today by challenging Minority Leader (and former Speaker) Nancy Pelosi to a debate on his proposal to slash Congressmembers' salaries and make them part-time representatives. Why Congress? They're only the only group of politicians with lower poll numbers than him.
So how does a classy woman like Representative Pelosi respond? She laughs it off.
"He did ask if I could debate here in Washington on Monday, it is my understanding that such a letter has come in. Monday, I'm going to be in Portland in the morning, visiting some of our labs in California in the afternoon, that's two.... I can't remember what the third thing is," she said at her Thursday morning press conference to laughter.
