Nancy Pelosi, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'When you hear the expression "bless his heart," or some variation thereof, it usually means the person speaking things the person they're talking about is incredibly misguided or confused. But they're still a really nice person. That's how Nancy Pelosi described Republicans on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central).

The Democratic leader in Congress talked about the struggles Congress is having in figuring out how to govern effectively, while spending perhaps a bit too much time touting the higher popularity it enjoyed when it was controlled by the Democrats. 40% is more than 9%, but it's still a failing grade.

According to Pelosi, though, the problem is that these two parties are driving down such divergent paths, and compromise is proving hard to come by. And then she got in a solid dig against the Republicans in Congress. "Bless their hearts the Republicans they do what they believe," she said. "And they do not believe in social security, Medicare, Medicaid, clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety, public education."
