For years the right has be demonizing Nancy Pelosi as a “San Francisco liberal.” Okay, it’s true. She’s from San Francisco. She’s a liberal. So what’s wrong with that? It’s not like she’s a socialist, what the right is calling anyone who is a FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ or Carter Democrat. She’s a moderate. And what’s wrong with San Francisco? Great diversity. Great food. Nothing like having a cha-cha bowl from Orlandos at a Giants baseball game. Ditto garlic fries and Guinness.
There are two truths here
The right has demonized Nancy Pelosi unjustly.Many on the left are fearful that this demonization may hurt them so they want Pelosi to go away,
The reality is that Pelosi is a force of nature. She’s been one the most powerful leaders in the house in a long, long time. That’ s what the Republicans fear.
And they should fear her. She will kick ass and take names.
As to the Democrats who are worried, I can assure them that life with an Italian-American grandma in charge is always better.
The House will soon be a Democratic majority. Democrats picked up a number of Governors.The right’s attempt at voter suppression have been daunting but not all that effective. Stacey Abrams is not giving up in Georgia. Trump is scared.
The reaction to Trump and the Teabaggers is being felt and reverberating throughout America. This is a new day in America.
The photo is of Colorado’s Jared Polis, representing the 2nd CD. Why is he smiling? He just got elected Colorado’s new governor. First openly gay, Jewish governor in Colorado history.
What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50? Your Honor.
Something is seriously wrong with our judicial system when partisans get appointed.
Lisa reminds me that I haven’t put up a new thread in quite a while. I plead guilty. Today seems appropriate.
While I didn’t often agree with Senator McCain’s policies, you knew that for the most part he was genuine. Something severely lacking in today’s politics.
An old college friend of mine who works for DOI once told me that the only Senator who didn’t bullshit him was McCain.
He was a man that put country over party. Something we don’t see on the right much these days. He couldn’t stand Trump and thought that his Republican party was faltering.
One can only hope that the current Republican party can take a lesson from Senator McCain.
We’re screwed. Trumpland über alles!
Bail revoked for witness tampering. Way to go Paul. This is the gang that couldn’t shoot straight. Facing the rest of his life in the pokey, will he flip? Does he have anything that Muller doesn’t already know? Trump is going down. It’s just a matter of time.
50 years ago today Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis. He was there to protest with the sanitation workers about wage inequality.
50 years later things have changed. Some for the better. Some for the worse. Wage inequality is getting worse. Teachers are on strike in Oklahoma following the teacher strike in Kentucky. And we’ve got a racist in the White House.
