Nancy Pelosi takes her ball and goes home, shuts down the House and CSPAN cameras.

In classic 7 year old tradition, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has adjourned the House of Representatives for 5 weeks instead of doing anything about gas prices or domestic oil drilling. Republicans continued to stay on the floor talking about potential solutions and, since Nancy and Company isn’t interested in those sorts of things, she had the cameras turned off so she wouldn’t look any more useless. How bad must she have thought she would look it the cameras were still on to make herself look this bad to avoid it?

The Republicans continued to speak to the gallery, which Pelosi can’t shut down without going into special session, and used Twitter to update the world. Wonder if the media will cover this.

Here are some Twitter updates from the floor. You can follow it here.

And Politico is on this too here.

Video here.
