Over the Eleanor Clift, Through Middle-Class Woods

This interview with Nancy Pelosi from Newsweek is funny stuff:

You’re presented as a wealthy woman from San Francisco when you’re really this middle-class kid from Baltimore …
Little Italy-downtown …

I have some sympathy for Pelosi here. It is terribly difficult these days to get the lunkheaded electorate and the poisonous right-wing media establishment to acknowledge you are a middle-class kid from Baltimore when there’s this little technicality of being a wealthy United States Representative from San Francisco. Get over it people! She’s just like you! I mean, Lawd in Heaven, what’s a wealthy woman have to do to earn her Class War Proletariat Points these days, anyway? Dress in the Russian peasant circa 1910 hand-me-downs she wore back when she was middle-class?

How do you get more of who you are across?
Somebody said to me recently that modesty is a private virtue and a public vice. You have to self-promote at some point, and that’s probably the hardest part of this job for me. But if we win, I think it won’t be so hard. The spotlight will be there. I’ve just got to do the job I do with the respect I have from my colleagues-they know how impressive I am.
[Emphasis added]

Yeah, it seems extraordinarily tough for her. Somebody let me know when this self-confessed impressive woman actually starts self-promoting. I have a sneaking suspicion that might be quite a show.

Oh, and I wish this had been a “Do-Nothing Congress.” If it had, I might actually be looking forward to casting a ballot.

Rest here.
