Two Speakers in One!

James Taranto:

• "I say to the president, Mr. President, if you think that our troops in Iraq are there to fight for democracy, do not destroy it at home by cutting off our freedom of speech. . . . "So I thank all of you who have spoken out for your courage, your point of view. All of it. Your advocacy is very American and very important. . . . There's nothing more articulate, or more eloquent, to a member of Congress than the voice of his or her own constituent. . . . I'm a fan of disruptors," -- Nancy Pelosi, speaking to a San Francisco town hall meeting, Jan. 17, 2006

• "I think they're AstroTurf. You be the judge. They're carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care." -- Nancy Pelosi on disruptive constituents, Aug. 5, 2009
