Those of us who are about to die salute you

NRO's Robert Costa describes the scene as the House adjourned early Thursday.
Nancy Pelosi saying goodbye to colleagues who are about to be slaughtered in the mid-term elections - including Virginia's own Tom Perriello.
Pelosi smiled her usual grin — immobile and broad — and wished fellow Democrats the best. Some stopped to chat, but many just rushed past, uninterested in small talk. Rep. Tom Perriello, a vulnerable freshman Democrat from Virginia, was one who skipped by, but Pelosi called him back, inviting him to join her circle of allies by the elevator. Their talk was short: He tried to sound upbeat about his chances. Pelosi, of course, smiled.
And they went off into the storm.
