"I know nothingk!"

Quite a lot is being made over Speaker Nancy Pelosi's early knowledge of waterboarding and nancy-come-lately abhorrence of its inherent evil. She is being likened to Hogan's Heroes character, Sgt. Schultz.

Give me a break. Aside from the superficial likenesses of incompetence with a propensity for denying the reality of unpleasant situations, these two major players have virtually nothing in common. Sgt. Schultz was very displeased with reigning tyrants, but was favorable and actually helpful to Americans and their allies, whereas Ms. Pelosi shows no such tendencies.

Most certainly, the better comparison is Nancy Pelosi with the Gestapo's Major Wolfgang Hochstetter.
