The Amazing Human Nancy Pelosi Pretzel

by the Left Coast Rebel

Laugh along with the amazing human pretzel, her name is Nancy:

(WSJ) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has the “overwhelming support” of fellow Democrats in her bid to become minority leader in the next Congress, and says she’s not to blame for the Democrats’ mid-term debacle.

“We didn’t lose the election because of me,” Ms. Pelosi told National Public Radio in an interview that aired Friday morning. “Our members do not accept that.”

Instead, the California Democrat attributes the loss of at least 60 seats to high unemployment and “$100 million of outside, unidentified funding.”

“Any party that cannot turn (9.5% unemployment) into political gains should hang up the gloves,” she said.

Among those rooting for Ms. Pelosi to stick around are Republicans, who are giddy at the prospect of reprising in 2012 the attacks they used in the past election cycle, tying Democratic incumbents around the country to the liberal from San Francisco.

Ms. Pelosi’s reply: Bring it on. “The reason they had to take me down is because I’ve been effective in fighting special interests in Washington, D.C.,” Ms. Pelosi said, citing the health insurance and financial services industries. “I’m effective. They had to take me out. I’m also the most significant attractor to support for the Democrats.”

“So, I’m not looking back on this,” Ms. Pelosi said. “They asked me to run, I’m running. We don’t let the Republicans choose our leaders, and again, our members understand, they made me a target because I’m effective, politically and policy-wise.”

So let's get this straight. Nanny-Government-Nancy thinks that she has absolutely no culpability in Democrat losses on November 2. She also thinks that shadowy, outside conspiratorial funding is to blame for the Democrat rout. Beyond that as well she thinks that angry, unemployed folks that bolted GOP are to blame (how dare they vote against their own interests, better, rulers and philosopher-king superiors).

And, she is effective, because she rammed a disastrous health care takeover (that she wanted everyone to read to find what was in it) through the Congress.

How can someone in power truly be this stupid?


  1. From what I have read it does not appear that any democrat in a leadership position gets what happened in last week's election. This includes the president who this week blamed the losses on poor communication. Luckily for the democrats Obama is an inept communicator (at least without a teleprompter). If he had been able to communicate his accomplishments the democrats would have likely experienced greater losses in congress.

    I for one think it is great. Let them continue what they have been doing so that we can see a repeat of 2010 in 2012.

  2. I think that Nancy is suffering from deep mental issues and really needs to STFU!

  3. I don't think she's dumb. She's a politician; news flash: they lie. Nothing in her history (at least that I am aware of) would suggest she has anything other than a coincidental relationship with the truth, or any reason to put anyone else's interests above her own.

    It would be political suicide to admit that she's a detriment to her own party, and/or that her socialist agenda got partially rebuffed by the voters. It's far more politically palatable, and even maybe appealing to her base, to blame the losses on factors outside of her control, such as mysterious external donations, magical high unemployment (which is not at all related to her own job-killing policies), and/or aliens. I'd expect nothing less from someone who's association with integrity is as tenuous as Obama's support for limited government, the free market, and the American Constitution.

  4. The government needs to mass distribute whatever drug she's on.
