“The Plural Of Anecdote Is Not Data.”

Wednesday, August 1, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Speaker Pelosi is reaching out to lefty journalists, and Harold Meyerson reports her comments on Iraq:

Pelosi (understandably, given the administration’s mountain of misrepresentation on all war-related matters) is wary. “The plural of anecdote is not data,” she said. “I’m very concerned they’ll pass off anecdotal successes as progress in Iraq.”

What an inane statement. Incredibly, Pelosi seems to fear good news from Iraq more than she does reports of defeat.

“Nothing less than the planet is at stake,” she tells the friendly audience, but she isn’t talking about the war she is committed to losing, but the energy bill. Through the looking glass with Nancy, and we have 17 more months of this ahead.
