(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.
