Pelosi: The spirits of dead suffragettes visited me at the White House or something

posted at 4:41 pm on August 9, 2012 by Allahpundit

Deep thoughts via CNS, and not just because she evidently thinks highly enough of this lame, unimaginative anecdote (“my chair was getting crowded in”) to tell it over and over and over. She’s actually pitching it as a bona fide visitation, a quasi-mystical experience — “I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since” — rather than a simple metaphor for how history weighed on her as the first woman Speaker in her initial meeting with Bush. I can just imagine her speechwriters handing her a first draft with a line in there somewhere about “having a seat at the table,” Pelosi telling them that she likes it but that they need to punch it up, and them coming back to her three minutes later with the most progressive ghost story evah. And yet, no doubt there are plenty of self-styled hard-eyed skeptics in her target audience who eat this up with a spoon. Hey — if the ghost of Ted Kennedy could help her pass ObamaCare, why couldn’t Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony show up for a group high-five?

Tom Foley’s still alive, so I guess the visitation about what it feels like to lose a gigantic Democratic majority in the House will have to wait. Click the image to watch.

Bath salt is bad for you, Nancy.

Margaret Sanger was there too.

Gave me a high-five.

Except for one minor detail…Susan B. Anthony and Stanton were anti-abortionists…so Pelosi, what were you doing at their table?

right2bright on August 9, 2012 at 4:08 PM

All that botox must have leaked into what’s left of her brain. Drying her hair in a microwave probably hasn’t helped either.

Im certain there was also weeping and gnashing of teeth, but Pelosi just didn’t mention it.

Nancy was so busy feeling great about herself she didn’t listen to the whole sentence: “We finally have a seat at the table and you have to go and humiliate us.”

rhombus on August 9, 2012 at 4:50 PM

I always hated ghoststories. Pelosi has always been pretty good at seeing things that aren’t there though. Astroturfers at the town halls being the first example that comes to mind.

Question: Pelosi, as Speaker of the House, said that the CIA lied to her about waterboarding.
As speaker – she just buried that whole issue.

She’s no longer speaker now – and there are enough Republicans in the House to do anything they damn well please …

So why hasn’t CRYBABY BOEHNER opened up an investigation into this supposed case of CIA lying to congress? Get to the bottom of it – censure them or censure her.

Oh wait a second – I know why he won’t – because the GOP holds NO ONE accountable for anything and has completely checked out of the “checks and balances” and “oversight” part of their congressional duties.

Because they have no balls!

If it was Susan B Anthony, then she was probably pissed about the contraception plan in ObamaCare. She was strictly anti-abortion.

So she’s either clinically insane, actually dabbling in the Dark Arts, or BOTH. And i’ve heard that the latter can cause the former.

Man, these people represent us; probably not what the founders had in mind.

Indeed on the founders’ intent, but they don’t “represent” us. They only represent themselves. They eat lobsters and soon will demand that you eat Spam only (not that it’s not good too).

And yet, no doubt there are plenty of self-styled hard-eyed skeptics in her target audience who eat this up with a spoon.

this is as good as evidence gets for them. I mean, if someone told Harry something (and it matters), then surely if Susan B. Anthony plops her apparitioned ass down in front of her, its newsworthy…

tims472 on August 9, 2012 at 5:00 PM

Susan B. Anthony wrote:

“Sweeter even than to have had the joy of caring for children of my own has it been to me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them.” (1889)

Elizabeth Cady Stanton said:

“When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit.” (1873)

Emma Goldman wrote:

“The custom of procuring abortions has reached such appalling proportions in America as to be beyond belief…So great is the misery of the working classes that 17 abortions are committed in every 100 pregnancies” (1911)

Matilda Gage, Mattie Brinkerhoff, Victoria Woodhull, Sarah Norton, Alice Paul (author of the original Equal Rights Amendment), and Mary Wollstonecraft also were feminists who were against abortion — not because it was unsafe, but because abortion takes a human life and, ultimately, hinders justice for women.

She’s actually pitching it as a bona fide visitation, a quasi-mystical experience — “I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since” — rather than a simple metaphor for how history weighed on her as the first woman Speaker in her initial meeting with Bush.

Obviously, Bush’s fault.

Oh Nancy, bless her heart. She’s given her all (sanity, sense of moral purpose, humanity) to this job until there’s nothing left.

How long until her daughter has her committed to an institution where she doesn’t have a say in the governing of these United States. The poor poor woman has obviously had a breakdown from which she will never recover. Maybe they can send her to one of those farms for cats and dogs…y’know, A Better Place.

CitizenEgg on August 9, 2012 at 5:14 PM

A quick note to the republicans that refuse to get involved in politics this year:

Just imagine what would have happened if the TEA Party Patriots and GOP volunteers had decided to stay home in 2010 instead of working at the grass roots level to get us decent candidates elected. Wouldn’t it be grand having Pelousy in as Speaker of the House again?

This could happen. It all depends on how may are willing to get involved in grass roots level politics this year. Don’t expect Romney or the TEA Party people to do all of the hard work.

If not you, who?

DannoJyd on August 9, 2012 at 5:14 PM

I’m not a Palinista (don’t even particularly like her personally) but does anyone else recall outrageous outrage from the left when Palin said something about America doing God’s will in the War on Terror? It was something like that, the context of the situation is getting fuzzy for me.
