(Newser) – Herman Cain called her "Princess Nancy" last week, and the former House speaker is finally firing back: "Really, it’s another one of those clueless statements—clueless in that you don’t say something like that," she tells the Washington Post. "I don’t know that he had any malicious intent, but it trivialized the fact that I was speaker of the House." Sounds like the minority leader is on a roll—click to read the zinger she directed at Rick Perry yesterday.

Well you really can't expect a modern conservative to discuss facts or reality in any political discussion, can you?

Nothing trivializes her being Speaker of the House as much as her being Speaker of the House does.

I no longer believe men like Herm are "clueless". They use that wide eyed "Oh, I didn't know any better" routine way too often when they get cornered. This guy is poorly educated, but he is not stupid. If you offered him $10,000 to act appropriately toward a woman, he would get it right every time. Its just that he has zero respect for them, and thinks most men feel the same way.
