Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Almost) Shouted Down at Progressive Policy Conference

Seriously. She had to shout above the hecklers. And notice how it's Code Pink protesting in the top video. See, "Far Left Anti-Israel Protesters Heckle Pelosi at ‘America’s Future Now’ Conference." Funny though, it's the healthcare activists who're even more obnoxious. Too bad Pelosi's got a safe seat. Wouldn't you just love a Tom Foley moment this November? Added Bonus: Politico barely mentions the protest in a footnote, and Firedoglake defends the hag, saying "Pelosi delivered a pretty decent performance above the din, hopefully she heard the concerns, too."
