I am no fan of Nancy Pelosi. I think she is a typical weaselly politician who puts politics before principal. And, to be honest, she has probably done the dumbocrats more harm than good. (I bet right now his O ness is wishing that she would just go away)
This latest brouhaha over whether the frat boy's administration authorized torture is a prime example of Lady Nancy being a problem for the dems. Did she or didn't she know that Dick the devil et al were torturing alleged terrorists for fun? She says that she never knew; the CIA said that they briefed her; she says that they are liars. Who do we believe? In any case, she has taken this debate to an entirely different level, and she has caused us to lose focus of the real issue: Just why the hell was the frat boy and his minions breaking the law in the name of national security? That, my friends, is what we should be focusing on. That is what this debate should be about. Not whether Nancy Pelosi was briefed and sat on her rich ass or not. If she was and did nothing, I wouldn't be surprised. That is what I would expect from a career politician. Test the political wind and act accordingly. And if you will recall, at the time this was all going down the political wind was blowing in an entirely different direction.
But this is a typical republican trick: change the focus and distract. And Lady Nancy has fallen right into their trap. The folks at FOX are having multiple orgasms (what's that white stuff all over the studio floor?) because they have possibly caught a powerful dumbocrat in a lie. Their leaders are foaming at the mouth with phony outrage, and they haven't sought out the microphone this much since the days of Bubba's blowjobs. (speaking of white stuff on the floor. ) Of course this could not have come at a better time for a party that was disintegrating before our very eyes. Now, possibly, they have found something to rally around, and they will ride this donkey (no pun intended) until it's dead.
"I think this is the most despicable, dishonest and vicious political effort I've seen in my lifetime." "She is a trivial politician, viciously using partisanship for the narrowist of purposes, and she dishonors the Congress by her behavior." "Speaker Pelosi's the big loser, because she either comes across as incompetent, or dishonest. Those are the only two defenses,”
Oh Newt, put a lid on it. Save all of your phony pontification for the FOX studios. They might believe your bullshit, but fortunately, no one else does.
