Nancy Pelosi “Near Tears” After Netanyahu Speech

By on 3.3.15 | 5:01PM

Benjamin Netanyahu is basically a badass. His speech today, in front of a joint session of Congress, delivered what was expected and, hopefully, has changed the focus of the conversation over Iran from one of whether the speech was appropriate, to whether the administration's actions can possibly have any effect on Iran's nuclear weapons program. The answer to the later is, quite obviously, from Bibi's speech and elsewhere, pretty much "no."

But not everyone was as positively impacted by Bibi's speech. Nancy Pelosi, for example, who sat in the chamber and rolled her eyes through Netanyahu's speech rather than skipping it like some of her colleagues, was "near tears," but not in a good way.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hammered Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday, saying the Israeli prime minister's speech to Congress was an "insult" to the country.

Nancy Pelosi: Get Your Sweetie Obamacare for Valentine’s Day

By on 2.12.15 | 5:37PM

Frankly, I'm not sure why Nancy Pelosi is even embracing the concept of Valentine's Day. In this dog-eat-dog rape-culture world, the idea of a holiday that promotes any kind of physical affection is almost begging America's male population to "man-spread" themselves across womens' rights. As a woman, I'm offended that someone in a position of power even acknowledges the holiday.

Or something.

Anyway, breaking with her core constituency, Rep. Nancy Pelosi does believe you should get your sweetie something for Valentine's Day, but it shouldn't be a bouquet of roses or a box of chocolates, or even one of those incredibly creepy Fifty Shades of Grey Vermont Teddy bears that come with handcuffs and the sinking feeling that you've lost all of your self respect. Nancy would like you to take your sweetie (gender non-specific, of course) down to your local Obamacare office and sign them up for free government healthcare.

Mitt Romney Earns Coveted Nancy Pelosi Endorsement

By on 1.28.15 | 1:03PM

I can never tell if these cross-party endorsements are supposed to serve as an underhanded dig, designed to shy Republicans away from viable candidates, or if they've just become a form of trolling. This one, for example, is baffling, because Nancy Pelosi can only want Mitt Romney to run a third time in order to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory, but yet, she can't possibly be daft enough to think that Republicans would see her ringing endorsement of Mitt Romney - yes, Mitt Romney - as some sort of clue that he's the one Democrats most fear. 

Either way, it's creepy and I hope it never happens again. Because if they get together and somehow produce a hybrid child that is one half robot and one half melting skin creature, we're truly all doomed. 

Asked if Romney has any shot at defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016, Pelosi told The Hill, “No, no. I mean, he might be a nice person — no offense, no offense — [but] let’s save you time.”

A smiling Pelosi added, “Let me put it this way — I hope he’s their nominee.”

Nancy Pelosi Re-Elected House Minority Leader

By on 11.18.14 | 1:34PM

It can be pretty safely said that mid-term elections almost always go against the ruling party, which means that, in most cases, no major changes need to be made to leadership or direction, because after the next Presidential election, the balance of power will shift anyway. But November's mid-terms didn't just hand the Republicans a decisive victory on the back of Democratic failures - or, in the case of Wendy Davis, something about Ebola - it changed the entire voter landscape. Suddenly, a lot of demographics that were squarely within the Democratic party were up for grabs. Dissatisfaction was widespread. 

Nancy Pelosi Has Never Heard of this Gruber Guy, Either

By on 11.13.14 | 1:15PM

Nancy Pelosi has absolutely no idea who this Jonathan Gruber guy is. Never heard of him. Did you mean that short-lived but intensely funny SNL skit, "MacGruber'? She's heard of that. But Jooonaaaathaaaan Gruuuuuberrrr? Isn't ringing any bells. 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday tried to downplay comments by an architect of Obamacare, who was caught talking about the “stupidity of the American voter,” by saying she doesn’t even know who he is.

“I don’t know who he is,” she told reporters. “He didn’t help write our bill.”

Nancy Pelosi Blames Midterm Losses on Ebola

By on 11.12.14 | 4:20PM

Nancy Pelosi would like you to believe that, despite losing the Senate majority and several important governorships, the Democratic loss isn't all that significant. After all, those blatantly biased reporters at Fox News spent weeks harping away at how the Middle East is falling apart, and that the government's response to the short-lived Ebola outbreak was hapless at best. And those poor, stupid voters, who were so supportive of the Democratic party two short years ago, were hoodwinked into believing that Democrats had no ability to govern effectively or manage in a crisis. 

Plus, according to Nancy, Barack Obama has had just so many successes, that voters just can't even process them anymore.

“I don’t think it was a failure of his message; it was the extent of his success. Let’s say it in a more positive way. This president has accomplished many great things,” Pelosi said of the president. “You know there is always an October eclipse. We couldn’t catch a break.”

Nancy Pelosi Thinks She Knows More Than the Catholic Church

By on 6.16.14 | 2:53PM

The state of California, the city of San Francisco, and the Twelfth Congressional District of California are very upset with Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.

In spreading the tradition of the Catholic Church, the San Francisco archbishop is speaking at the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march. The teachings of that march, according to Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, are “venom masquerading as virtue.”

Apparently, Pelosi learned the fundamentals of virtue during her twenty-six years in Congress.  

Indeed, the congresswoman asked in a letter to the archbishop, “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?”

Last week, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee penned their own joint letter promoting “reconciliation rather than division and hatred.”

Why are these politicians, who parade themselves as loving moralists, practicing self-aggrandizement masquerading as tolerance?

Fat Chance, But…

By on 10.28.10 | 1:40PM

Politics Daily reports that North Carolina Democrat Rep. Heath Shuler says he may run for Speaker against Nancy Pelosi if his party keeps control of the House. The disclosure came in his debate with Republican opponent Jeff Miller:

During the debate, Shuler said, "If there is no viable alternative [to Pelosi], I will be running for speaker of the house."

Later, Miller pressed the congressman for details. "You're saying you would not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker?" Miller said.

"If that's the alternative, I will be voting for myself," Shuler answered.

"If she's there, you wouldn't vote for her? You'd vote for yourself?" Miller clarified.

Shuler replied, "I don't know how I can be any clearer. I can do as good a job as anybody in the U.S. Congress, because I can actually bring people together."

Pelosi: Raising Money for Democrats More Important Than Voters in San Francisco

By on 10.15.10 | 9:02PM

Explaining why she has refused to debate her Republican challenger, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that raising money for Democratic candidates "across the country" is a higher priority for her."

A video posted at Republican John Dennis's Web site, shows Pelosi being asked, ""Would you be open to debating your Republican opponent John Dennis in San Francisco?"

Pelso reponds: "Let me tell you what my priorities are. My priorities are to elect a Democratic Congress. In order to do that, it is essential for me - time is money for me. [Traveling] around this country, to amass the resources to put my candidates on TV. Whether I get a bigger majority or not in my district is not the point."

Dennis first requested a debate with Pelosi a month ago, and recorded a humorous video about her refusal to debate:
