At last night's address by Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wanted America to know she stood behind her president. She stood behind him again, and again, and again. Watch the clip.

Her sense of timing was uncanny. At every key moment in Obama's speech, Pop-Up Pelosi hastened to be the first to give him a standing ovation — before he even finished his sentence. Note how usually-grinning VP Joe Biden starts to grimace as Pelosi's eagerness to jump up and applaud bullies him into rising from his seat one more time. It's understandable that Pelosi would want the television audience to remember her as Obama's most ardent supporter. When she steps out of Obama's radiance, people mostly think about her corrupt business dealings, her crazy cat videos, and her ne'er-do-well son.
