In response to concerns that the newly installed Democratic leadership of Congress would not follow through on non-existent pledges to "restore civility" to the political process, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, "The Republicans have nothing to worry about. We will treat our colleagues from the other side of the aisle with the same comity and collegiality that they have shown us for the last 12 years. We will treat the office of the Presidency with the same deference and respect that our Republican colleagues lavished on the last Democratic President. As former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay always said, 'You can get more flies with honey than with possum poop, and the people didn't elect us to stink up the place with the feces of slow-moving marsupials.' Like Tom, I have always cherished bi-partisanship above all, excepting civility -- civility and decorum."

She didn't really say that. Not any of it.
