(Newser) – Say it with us: Ouch! Nancy Pelosi didn't just turn down Rick Perry's invitation to debate him on Monday—she twisted the knife a little bit. The Los Angeles Times reports that Pelosi today declined Perry's request by playing off of his "oops" moment. Her schedule, on Monday, is already booked, she explained. With three things. You know where this is going... She has to make an appearance in Portland, one in California, and "that's two. I can't remember what the third thing is."
