Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) expressed sympathy for how Nancy Pelosi is being treated and the media seems to be joining in, according to Weasel Zippers. He said:

“She’s hard-working, focused, trying to do things that are good for the American public, and for average working people, and she’s being vilified. I think that’s unfortunate,” Hoyer, the House majority leader, told The Hill as he campaigned in his home district.

Vilified? I don’t think that word means what he thinks it means.

Because I’m not sure I recall Nancy Pelosi being called a “wh*re” by an opposing campaign. I don’t remember her being called a “b@tch” numerous times by anyone on national television either. I don’t remember any ridiculously false one night stand stories coming out of the mainstream media about her. I don’t remember national news stories suggesting that her baby was actually her daughter’s baby. Do you?

So I’m going to suggest that maybe many of these Democrats don’t know what it is to be vilified. Can you find a Democrat woman who’s been vilified like Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, or Sharon Angle? Is there really any comparison?

So hold off on the Pelosi pity party please. OK?
