Nancy Pelosi Plays Elmer Fudd, Gets Caught in Her Own Clever Trap

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.
Action: Opponents of reform are organizing counter-demonstrators to speak at this and several congressional town halls on the issue to defend the status quo. It is critical that our members with real, personal stories about the need for access to quality, affordable care come out in strong numbers to drown out their voices.
I need a moment here. Seriously, MKH’s post is one of the funniest things I’ve read in ages. It’s like Pelosi set a trap for those wascally wight wingers, giggled a smug little giggle at her cleverness, turned to walk away, and stepped right into her own snare. If this were a cartoon, she would have been flung toward the horizon, her petulant cry of “I hate those wight wiiiiiiiiiingeeeeeeeeers!” fading into the distance until it was cut off by a muffled thump.
What more is there to say, really? Obviously, Pelosi doesn’t believe her paid goons are un-American any more than she believes that she should resign for her unconscionable and ridiculous rhetoric. However, she’s in a corner now and I, for one, am not inclined to let her skitter out of it.
So here’s my question for the Speaker. Given that the SEIU has expressly called for its members to do the very thing you unequivocally condemned, do you believe the union is un-American?
