- Pelosi Is Still Bat-$#!t Crazy
This video has inspired a lot of comment (Including one oblique reference in another freenj post by frithguild.
I only have this to add:
Obviously Nancy is still nuts. It hasn't occurred to her that everything she says to others in this video could just as easily be said to her. While I can't imagine disagreeing with anyone more, her political opinions are legitimate because the in fact are opinions. But her belief that she is somewhere near the political center while the Republicans (and specifically the Tea Party) are somewhere off on a radical edge is just crazy.
The moment I think should define Nancy Pelosi was when she grabbed that comically large gavel and marched though the basically polite Tea Party protesters with the members of the congressional black caucus on her way to 'deem' Obamacare as approved. In her mind, she was weaving and winding her way through a sea of bed sheet wearing rednecks and their burning crosses, to set oppressed people free. She even went so far as to claim to have heard racial epithets, which the dozens of news cameras present later revealed were never uttered.
But that was only the way she imagined it. In reality, she was on her way to use an obscure parliamentary rule to usurp the clearly stated political will of the American people, by seizing control of 1/6th of the US economy.
In the end, the Pelosi congress won't be remembered for it's compassion or it's sense of justice, but for it's determination to deny reality and delude itself and the rest of America. She lives in a fantasy world that has as little to do with reality as she can manage.
