This Is Why Pelosi Has Earned Her Job

Listen, sometimes I have disagreed with Nancy Pelosi. Sometimes she has infuriated me. But I have never thought that she didn't deserve her leadership position. She gets it right most of the time — has a pretty remarkable batting average for a politician, frankly — and frequently gets it right in a way that makes me cheer.

Here is one of those times: "The wall is not about money. The wall is about morality. It's the wrong thing to do. It doesn't work. It's not effective. It's the wrong thing to do and it's a waste of money."

It isn't right. It isn't effective. And it's a total waste. Three devastating arguments against Donald Trump's signature issue in 35 words. Made to reporters who could fit it into a single tweet.

Nancy Pelosi, folks.
