Well, knock us over with a feather!

But nevertheless, she persists.

Of course, it’s not as if her minions care. They’ll tie themselves into any logical knot necessary to defend her:

The congresswoman told the group she would not go with the 13 other House Democrats on the tour of the facility and stayed with the family.
