"Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, particularly important to Italian-Americans. It’s a day where we remember and pray to St. Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that’s exactly what our health-care bill will do. … Every order [of nuns] that you can think of was there [on a list of endorsements], saying they wanted us to pass this life-affirming legislation." -- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, 19 March 2010
Why, yes, it is piling on to point out that yesterday was the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, not the Feast of St Joseph the Worker (that's on May 1); that if a conservative made a similar speech she would get Palined; and that St Joseph probably takes a dim view of legislation that subsidizes abortion.
