Nancy Pelosi

Poor Nancy Pelosi. She’s not Speaker of the House anymore and now she’s being accused by her loony left constituents in Oakland, California of eating a Satan sandwich.

So what’s in a Satan sandwich? Well, you have one half white bread, one half black bread, you fill it with un-sliced baloney and garnish it with lots of malaise mayonaise. It also comes with a side dish of B.S.

No, Diane, real people will not be hurt most. That sad fate will fall to robots, mannequins and the audio-animatronic Mr. Lincoln at Disneyland.

Where do they find these people? Is there a liberal laboratory where they are trained to ask the most inane questions imaginable? Is there an Interview 101 class where they learn to look sincere and act like morons?

With no further delay, we proudly present Diane Sawyer’s latest moment of absurdity.

One hot Saturday afternoon in July an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C.

He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day’s Mass and asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the Congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.


"...and he asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the Congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint."

“No,” the Cardinal replied. “I don’t really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of Pelosi’s views.”

Pelosi’s aide then said, “Look, I’ll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to your church if you’ll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint.”

The Cardinal thought about it and said, “Well, the church can use the money, so I’ll work your request into tomorrow’s sermon.”

As Pelosi’s aide promised, Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle.

At the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Speaker Pelosi was present.

“While Pelosi’s presence is probably an honor to some,” the Cardinal said to the congregation, “the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and she tends to flipflop on many other issues. Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker and a nitwit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat and a thief. I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations both in Washington and in California. The woman is simply not to be trusted.”

“But when compared to President Obama,” the Cardinal concluded, “Pelosi is a saint.”

Make no mistake about it. When we say that Nancy Pelosi’s position on capturing Osama Bin Laden has evolved, we mean that it did a complete 180 with neck-snapping suddenness the moment George Bush left office and Barack Obama was sworn in.


Some would say Nancy Pelosi's position has evolved. Others would say it's a partisan line of bull.

Powerline has the contradictory conflation:

Nancy Pelosi, press conference, September 7, 2006:

Even if [Osama bin Laden] is caught tomorrow, it is five years too late. He has done more damage the longer he has been out there. But, in fact, the damage that he has done . . . is done. And even to capture him now I don’t think makes us any safer.

Nancy Pelosi, earlier today:

The death of Osama bin Laden marks the most significant development in our fight against al-Qaida. . . . I salute President Obama, his national security team, Director Panetta, our men and women in the intelligence community and military, and other nations who supported this effort for their leadership in achieving this major accomplishment. . . . The death of Osama bin Laden is historic.

Pelosi may be correct that capturing Bin Laden wouldn’t make us any safer.

But surely we can’t be the only ones willing to admit that seeing the photos of his brains splattered on a wall will give us a special feel good moment that will last for days.

Back in 2008 Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, “The price of oil is at the doorstep. Four dollars plus per gallon for oil is attributed to two oil men in the White House.”

Oddly enough, Pelosi is now conspicuously silent about gas prices. No public comments. No press conferences. No interviews.

Here’s a question for you: If Nancy Pelosi blamed high gas prices on “the oil men in the White House” back in 2008, shouldn’t she blame today’s high gas prices on the snake oil men in the White House?

That Nancy Pelosi cracks us up. She’s one funny chick. There’s no one who can get a room laughing like she can. Especially if the room is the House of Representatives. For example:

“Democrats have long fought for fiscal responsibility as a top priority of this Congress. We won’t go into the history right now, but it is well known that President Clinton took us out of a period of deficit into his last five budgets being in surplus or in balance,” Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi said on the floor of the House on Tuesday.

Then Pelosi continued, “I just flew in and, boy, are my arms tired. I used to live in an apartment that was so small even the mice were hunchbacked. Take my husband, please. Thank you. Thank you very much. I’ll be here all week.”

There’s nothing funnier than liberals touting their religion. Absolutely nothing. Take Nancy Pelosi, for example. She argued against Republican budget cuts by attributing “biblical powers to heal” to the National Institutes of health.

CNS News has the details of Pelosi’s religious awakening:

When speaking at a press conference on Capitol Hill celebrating the first anniversary of the health care bill’s passage, Pelosi said, “There’s a cut in funding for the National Institutes of Health. This is not a healthy thing for our country because that research has answers, you know, that every family in America is one telephone call, one diagnosis, one accident away from needing the kind of biomedical research that can cure – really have the biblical power to cure in a very, very special way and so to cut back on that research is wrong.”

Holy Moses. The woman is nuts.

Nancy Pelosi is nuts. Stark, raving crazy. The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor the former Speaker of the House with a resolution, but she insisted on a re-write because the original wording wasn’t effusive enough.

nancy pelosi

Stretching the truth is nothing new for Nancy Pelosi has the ego info:

When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.

“I have some friendly amendments,” said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee.

“You think I’m kidding,” Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.

First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was “why she went to Congress.” Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her “accomplishments for equality,” mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in December.

“Finally, since, as she said, ‘I’m not going anywhere,’ she wanted to add, in the final ‘whereas’ clause, ‘…and will continue the fight for America’s working families,'” Christine Pelosi said.

The committee applauded that point, and approved the amended resolution on a voice vote.

What? No mention of her personal crusade to support the Botox industry?

The lesson to be learned from this is that honorary resolutions are far more important than laws. Resolutions must be carefully read and rewritten to Pelosi’s exacting standards before they are passed. But laws? Laws must be passed before we can find out what’s in them.

Nancy Pelosi hates

by editor on February 10, 2011

We have the the f-word. The n-word. The c-word. The b-word. The s-word. And now the former Speaker of the House has introduced a new unspeakable word: the h-word. We’re running out of friggin’ alphabet here, folks.

nancy pelosi censor hate

Hateful hater Nancy Pelosi hates

The Examiner Vancouver reports the latest in Democrat censorship:

Fired former Speaker of the House and current Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, is going on record as saying that she wants to use censorship to ban one, particular word that she does not like. The word? “Hate.”

To hear Pelosi tell it, she really hates it when other Americans use the word “hate” in a political context. Pelosi’s overreaction is in response to the Bill O’Reilly Superbowl interview with Barack Obama, in which the host asked the president about the number of people who hate him.

Pelosi’s reply to the O’Reilly question was swift and confident: Simply stop using the word, and everything will be fine.

Sorry, Nancy, but we take this one personally. We’re kind of partial to our name. Oh, sure, in the spirit of compromise we’ve gone through the thesaurus, but nothing else works quite as well as the word “hate.” And just doesn’t seem very catchy to us.

Now we find out that all Nancy Pelosi really wanted to do was out Milton Friedman Milton Friedman. The woman is all about those gol’ danged free market solutions. She’s all over ‘em. Loves ‘em. Has ‘em on her cinnamon raisin bagel in the morning.

The problem, we now discover, is that people never understood that because she’s both dense and incomprehensible.

“All of the inititiatves we had put forth, whether it was healthcare reform or it was the issues that were related to energy security for our country or whether it was Wall Street help, Wall Street reform, any of them, were all about market-oriented solutions, about private sector leading the way, public policy to set standards or have tax incentives or…or…and the like. But it was all about recognizing our job creation would have to take place in the private sector in order for us to really thrive and be entrepreneurial as a country. So that…the labeling of the President as not being in that mode is not correct. That’s who he is.”

We never understood what she was talking about and after watching this video it’s clear that she doesn’t, either.

By the way, who super glued Nancy’s knees together?

This is friggin’ hilarious. We wish this is how the passing of the gavel from Nancy Pelosi to John Boehner had really happened.

How do they do this stuff? No, seriously, can someone explain how they do a video like this?

These two short videos pretty much sum up sad situation we find ourselves in with ObamaCare.

In the first clip, Nancy Pelosi tells the fawning press that the Democrats would have passed ObamaCare “even if everyone was happy with their health coverage.” For once, Pelosi unwittingly told the truth, because polls at the time showed that somewhere north of 80% of Americans were satisfied with their healthcare prior to ObamaCare.

To see your unfortunate medical future, watch the second video.

We learned from the Radio Equalizer that Rosie O’Donnell has a satellite radio program. Yeah, we were as shocked as you are, but not as shocked as Rosie was when she got a phone call from a Canadian listener who started off by praising Canada’s universal healthcare system and then revealed that she had been waiting for gastric bypass surgery for seven years and may have to wait several more years.

Caller: It’s not considered an emergency surgery–

O’Donnell: Oh, OK.

Caller: It’s considered elective, so if it was an emergency surgery, it would be a lot quicker. To see any kind of specialist is at least a few months, you’re not going to get into see somebody next week.

O’Donnell: If you called and sort of were persistent in saying to them, ‘I really need this’ … it doesn’t change the [waiting] list order.

Caller: … They’re telling me, by the way, it’s gonna be another two or three years … There’s still about 2,000 people ahead of me.

We recall Pelosi’s previous statement that “We had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it” and think to ourselves, “No, you don’t. Just look across our northern border.”

The word “shameless” comes to mind. But then so do the words “lying sack of excrement.”

FOX Nation has the details of Nancy Pelosi’s clumsy attempt to rewrite history:

At her final press conference as House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go.”

The numbers tell a different story.

When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi’s Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 – a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi’s four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.

There’s an old saying, Nancy, that history is written by the winners. You, unfortunately, are the loser so you have been officially stripped of the golden quill and magic ink well with which the last decade’s history will be written.

Ann Coulter said the worst thing you can do to a liberal is to tell the truth about them. Well, according to a recent article on entitled “Pelosi fundraising to ‘Protect the Progress We Have Made,’” the former Speaker of the House is sick and tired of hearing the truth. Especially if it’s about her.

nancy pelosi

Don't you hate it when those shadowy special interest front groups tell the truth?

According to the article “Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an outgoing New Year’s Eve wish, asking House campaign supporters to fight back against ‘shameful attack ads’ that use her to target vulnerable Democrats.”

Pelosi is asking donors to “chip in $10” to combat “shadowy special interest front groups.” “Shadowy special interest front groups” is apparently defined as Republicans who recently ate the Democrats’ lunch by producing ads linking them to Pelosi, “which proved to be an effective strategy for the GOP in the 2010 cycle.”

To Pelosi’s credit, she did not mention the magnificent job she did “draining the swamp” during her tenure as Speaker of the House on her listing major Democratic accomplishments. Rather she pointed to such gems as Health Care reform and – we are not making this up – financial regulatory reform as some of the miracles that the Democratic majority was able to deliver.

On second thought, maybe she should have talked about draining the swamp.

The devastating losses in the November elections were obviously far harder on Nancy Pelosi than was previously thought. The poor woman has suffered a complete mental breakdown and has completely lost touch with reality.

The soon-to-be former Speaker stood on the floor of the House and said, “Obama was a job creator from day one.”

This, of course, is in complete contrast to reality, which shows that lowest unemployment rate of the Obama administration was on day one. It has done nothing but rise since then.

Bottom line: In the last two years we’ve lost nine million jobs and one mind.

Congratulations to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. They’ve united the American people in one thing – their complete disdain for Congress.

congress-approval-rating-gallup has the devastating details:

Americans’ assessment of Congress has hit a new low, with 13% saying they approve of the way Congress is handling its job. The 83% disapproval rating is also the worst Gallup has measured in more than 30 years of tracking congressional job performance.

The prior low approval rating for Congress was 14% in July 2008 when the United States was dealing with record-high gas prices and the economy was in recession.

Congratulations to Harry and Nancy. They say that records were made to be broken, so it’s nice to see that you guys were able to beat your own previous low. But we think you’re just getting started. If you can just cram this Omnibus Spending Bill through Congress, we have a feeling you can set another new record next month.

Our headline is actually in reverse chronological order. As you’ll see in this story.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson ruled that the government can’t force you to buy health insurance. In other words, ObamaCare is unconstitutional.

With that in mind, you may recall the incident last October when a reporter asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi if she could pinpoint the part of the Constitution that authorized Congress to mandate that all Americans purchase healthcare insurance.

Reporter: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?

Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”

Reporter: “Yes, yes I am.”

Don’t look now, Nancy hon, but we’re pretty sure Judge Hudson is serious, too.

Imagine that you’re Ben Chandler, a blue dog Democrat from Kentucky. You just watched 63 of your House colleagues go down in flames while you managed to hang onto your seat by the razor thin margin of just 648 votes.

ben chandler blames pelosi

Blue Dog Democrat Ben Chandler: Is he dumbfounded or just plain dumb?

Heads are going to roll, you think to yourself. And then you find out that your surviving colleagues think Nancy did a dandy job and should remain as the Democrats’ leader in the House.

Do you think you’d describe yourself as (a) shocked, (b) pissed, (c) dumbfounded, or (d) all of the above.

Rep. Ben Chandler (Ky.), who won reelection by only 648 votes, said in a recent interview that he blames outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Democrats’ deep defeats in the midterms.

“If not there, where else does the responsibility lie?” Chandler told McClatchy. “You’re talking about the loss of 60 or something seats held by capable public servants. There had to be something going on at a level above them.”

He added, “If that isn’t the lesson, I don’t know what is.”

Chandler, a member of the moderate Blug Dog Coalition, voted against Pelosi for caucus leader, saying that her opponent, Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.), was a “better fit” for his district.

“It baffles me that you can suffer the largest defeat since 1938 and still maintain the leadership of your caucus,” Chandler said of Pelosi.

Well, Ben, you’re one step ahead of us. We still can’t figure out how a radical like Pelosi became your party’s leader the first time around.

It’s not just the lame duck Congress, it’s the blame duck Congress. Princess Pelosi blames the Republicans for the fact that she’s the most hated person in Washington.


Princess Pelosi is loathed by the little people (we mean voters, not midgets, although midget voters probably hate her ass, too) has the former Speaker’s laughable lament:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blamed Republican-funded attacks for her low approval ratings Wednesday, moments after Democrats re-elected her to head the party as minority leader in next year’s Congress.

“How would your ratings be if $75 million were spent against you?” Pelosi said, after being asked about her low approval ratings.

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll taken at the end of October found that only eight percent of independents have a favorable view of Pelosi and just 24 percent of the general population approves of her job as Speaker. In the waning days of the 111th Congress, 73 percent disprove Congress as a whole, according to the Real Clear Politics poll average.

When asked why she decided to run for another term in party leadership despite the low ratings, she replied, “Because I’m an effective leader. Because we got the job done on health care and Wall Street reform and consumer protections. The list goes on. Because they know that I’m the person that can attract the resources both intellectual and otherwise to take us to victory because I have done it before.”

To paraphrase the immortal words of Shirley Ellis:

Nancy, Nancy bo Bancy Bonana fanna fo Fancy
Fee fy mo Mancy, Nancy!
The blame game!”

The Confucians say, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The Democrats say, “Gaining 7,000,000 jobs begins with letting Nancy Pelosi keep hers.”

No. Really. That’s what obtuse Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn) told Greta Van Susteren in this Fox News interview.

It’s almost zenlike, isn’t it?

Remarkable. Congressman Paul Ryan, one of the leading Republicans in the House, says outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has never bothered to speak to him. has details of Pelosi’s silent treatment:

Outgoing House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) is the GOP’s primary source of contact within the Democratic leadership, a top Republican said Monday.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the incoming chairman of the House Budget Committee, suggested Republicans get along best with Hoyer, the second-ranking House Democrat who will stay in the No. 2 position in the next Congress.

“I get along pretty well with Steny. He’s the only one we really talk to,” Ryan said Monday morning on CNBC. “I don’t know Nancy Pelosi. I had a 30-second conversation with her about six years ago, and that’s about it.”

“…She just doesn’t talk; I’ve never talked to her,” Ryan said of Pelosi. “I’m not casting aspersions — just, Steny talks to us.”

Consider yourself lucky, Paul. Not speaking to Pelosi must be like the congressional version of winning the lottery.

There was a time when black Americans were routinely told to move to the back of the bus. But things are different under the Democrats. Now they’re thrown under the bus.


We don't wish to be the bearers of bad news, Rep. Clyburn, but you just got screwed

For some unknown reason, James Clyburn, the top ranking black Democrat in the House, seems to be taking the fall for the party’s failure in the midterm elections. How else can you explain his “promotion” from the number two position to the number three position? has the demotion details:

House Democrats have reached a deal to keep both Reps. Steny Hoyer and James Clyburn in the leadership, with Hoyer (D-Md.) serving as minority whip and Clyburn (D-S.C) taking a new, as-yet-still-undefined number three position.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.) who is seeking the minority leader’s job in the next Congress, reached an agreement with Clyburn on late Friday night, and Democratic leaders quickly announced the deal.

Clyburn’s title and responsibilities were not specified in the announcement from Pelosi’s office, and Democratic leadership aides scrambled to explain the deal to reporters.

No shit they announced it quickly. They had to do it while Clyburn was still basking in the warm glow of the party’s press release and before he figured out that he’d been screwed.

Let’s see: Bankrupting the nation, record unemployment, spearheading one of the greatest repudiations a political party has ever suffered, passing the most unpopular bill in history…yup, Princess Pelosi has a lot to celebrate. has the party planning specifics:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will host a reception Wednesday afternoon on Capitol Hill to celebrate “The accomplishments of the 111th Congress,” according to an invitation sent out Monday.

The event will offer congressional Democrats, many of whom will not be returning to Congress next January, an opportunity to reflect on the party’s legislative victories over the past two years. These have included the passage of major healthcare reform, financial regulatory reform, and climate and energy legislation.

Not likely to be lost on attendees, however, is that the unpopularity of many of these “accomplishments” among voters went far to contribute to a wave of Democratic losses in last week’s mid-term elections, in which Democrats lost control of the House and their majority in the Senate was weakened.

You’ve been on double secret probation since the beginning of 2009, Nancy. And now that you failed your midterms, there’s only one answer.

Toga! Toga! Toga!

There’s the old story of the guy who finds his friend pounding his head against the wall. “Why are you doing that?” he asks. His friend replies, “Because it feels so good when I stop.”

Nancy Pelosi is not, apparently, smart enough to stop pounding her head against the wall.


Nancy "Mommy Dearest" Pelosi interprets the elections

The Daily Caller has the painful details:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who saw her powerful position taken from her in Tuesday’s landslide election, was adamant the day after Democrats lost 60 seats in the House that the results were not a rejection of the agenda pursued by President Obama and herself.

“Let’s understand the message,” Pelosi told ABC’s Diane Sawyer. “The message was not, ‘I reject the course that you are on.’ The message is it didn’t go fast enough to produce jobs.”

Ms Pelosi will now begin pounding her head against the wall even harder and faster.
