Glenn Thrush quotes freshman Rep. Parker Griffith (D-Ala.):

Freshman Rep. Parker Griffith (D-Ala.) - who has bucked Dem leadership on the stimulus and climate change - told a town hall back in north Alabama that he doesn't plan to back Nancy Pelosi as speaker again, saying she's too divisive.

"I would not vote for her. Someone that divisive and that polarizing cannot bring us together," he said, according to the Huntsville (Ala.) Times.

"If she doesn't like it, I've got a gift certificate to the mental health center," he added.
