House minority leader Nancy Pelosi made her fifth appearance on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show in her campaign to rally Democrats to retake the House reports Lisa Mascaro, of the Los Angeles Times, in Of Romney, Pelosi prefers 'Mittology' to Obama's 'Romnesia.'

In response to Jon Stewart noting that few experts expect us to win the 25 seats necessary to retake the House, Pelosi retorted:

“That’s why we have elections,” Pelosi said.

But Pelosi’s sharpest zinger was aimed at Romney’s shifting positions, particularly on abortion rights, as both presidential candidates court women voters in the increasingly tight race for the White House.

“The president calls it Romnesia, I have my own, what I call Mittology,” Pelosi said.

“Shouldn’t I be the one thinking up these very clever things?” Stewart asked. “Let me just go write some laws.”

She noted the “awesome” power of the speaker position, one she agreed with Stewart can be more powerful than the Greek god Thor.

I'm hoping that suspicions that polls are under counting Democrats may be true, meaning that an unexpectedly large wave of Democrats may show up and pull all the Democratic levers giving us a pleasant surprise of not only winning the White House, and keeping the Senate, but winning back the House too!  

That's my story and and sticking to it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
