Far be it from me to praise Nancy Pelosi....

Even when I agree with her, she is, in Himself's colorful phrase, someone whose face you wanna push in just for saying "Good morning."
(To be clear, he's never used the expression of her...)
Any way, whence this bit of un-grandstanding common sense?
Nancy Pelosi shut the door Thursday to a resolution honoring Michael Jackson because debate on the symbolic measure could raise "contrary views" about the pop star's life.

Lawmakers are free to use House speeches "to express their sympathy or their praise any time that they wish," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "I don't think it's necessary for us to have a resolution."
