Breaking News: Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday morning that she will remain as Democratic leader.

Not a surprise; she got her little pat on the head. And pitifully made a big hoopla about it, to boot.

So Pelosi really did throw herself a big press conference to “announce” nothing is changing.

Yes She did. #StatusQuo RT @amandacarpenter: So Pelosi really did throw herself a big press conference to “announce” nothing is changing.

The news was met with resounding yawns.

Not a surprise. Pelosi has leverage because Boehner doesn’t have 218 reliable votes + WH

CNN says Pelosi’s staying, so we can head back to the weirdo national security sex email catacombs!

Heh.

Twitchy will monitor and update with any other not-so-shocking developments.

Update:

Not surprising — Once again House Dems choose to be led by the far left by keeping Nancy Pelosi. #tcot

This Pelosi thing is the biggest news since Chuck Hagel called reporters to Nebraska to tell them he wasn’t running for president.

Update: Whoops!

She wrongly claimed that she did… MT @lukerussert: Pelosi press conf is so upbeat and jovial you’d think she won the Speaker’s gavel back.

— Brad Dayspring (@BDayspring) November 14, 2012

That’s right, she did.

OMG!What an IDIOT. Pelosi says “We do not have the majority but we have the gavel… oh wait…”

#facepalm – Pelosi says “We do not have the majority but we have the gavel… oh wait…”

— Steven Ertelt (@StevenErtelt) November 14, 2012

And singing, allegedly.

Is Pelosi drunk? She started off singing, she thinks they have the gavel…

— Andrew Rabin (@arrabin56) November 14, 2012

Bless her heart!

The mocking was swift and awesome.

When Pelosi said “but we have the gavel,” I thought she had pulled a Model Congress stunt, and was about to hold up a purloined gavel.

— Timothy P Carney (@TPCarney) November 14, 2012

Pelosi is cra-cra! She just pulled a Biden. “We have the gavel, opps ahhhh We don’t have the gavel so anyways…” Age limits anyone?

— valerie (@valsocal) November 14, 2012

@msnbc awkward! Nancy Pelosi in her rambling speech and photo op, she says her party has the gavel..room goes quiet

That gavel gaffe by Nancy Pelosi was epic! Looks like she’s been hanging out with Joe Biden a little too long… #tco

— Rachelle Friberg (@RachelleFriberg) November 14, 2012

@bdayspring i wonder if Pelosi calls the gavel “my precious”

— GoAskaMomma (@GoAskaMomma) November 14, 2012

And the video tape!
