Pelosi can't stand being called out

This is just too rich. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is whining to the President because of comments made by Dick Cheney on the Democrat's plans for Iraq. Just what was it that the VP said that was so offensive? It seems he spoke the truth:
"I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the Al Qaeda strategy," the vice president told ABC News. "The Al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people ... try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit."
Ouch. That's gonna leave a mark. But it gets better.
Pelosi, who said she could not reach the president, said Cheney's comments wrongly questioned critics' patriotism and ignored Bush's call for openness on Iraq strategy.

"You cannot say as the president of the United States, 'I welcome disagreement in a time of war,' and then have the vice president of the United States go out of the country and mischaracterize a position of the speaker of the House and in a manner that says that person in that position of authority is acting against the national security of our country," the speaker said.
Sorry, Nancy, but there are many of us questioning your patriotism, and to say you're "acting against the national security of our country" is not mischaracterizing your position.
