Pelosi Invokes Sexism, St. Francis In Her Job Performance Defense

Honestly, what is in the water in San Francisco. The Democratic former Speaker of the House moonbat of the Bay Area, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, sat down to talk to Rolling Stone in Iowa recently, and some humdingers came out of her mouth.

Check this out:

Your critics say you’re too liberal–
I’m [pro-] LGBTQ, I support those issues. I’m proud to. But they use that – they go into these districts and they say, “Too liberal.”

San Francisco values–
Which are the values of Saint Francis – “Make me a channel for thy peace.” You have a problem with that? I’m proud of all of that. I don’t think the [Democratic candidates] who say, “I’m not going to vote for Nancy” are disassociating themselves from the progressive agenda, or LGBTQ equality. They’re just responding to an ad in their district.

St. Francis, really? The man who was into temporal self-mortification for the sake of God and His Son so much that he wore hair shirts? Yeah, sorry, Nancy. There’s no peace with you and the Democrats when reporters like Fox’s Shannon Bream do not feel safe reporting from in front of the Supreme Court building.

Is there a margin you need to secure that gavel? You talked about wanting to win 35 seats.

No ,no. You only have to win [the leadership vote] in your caucus – and then you go to the floor [for the speakership vote]. People vote for the Democrat or they vote for the Republican. So I feel very comfortable about that. But I don’t feel like talking about it. My time is money, and mobilization and the rest. Part of it is messaging – and talking about me and what happens to me is the least important part of all of it.

I think some of it is a little bit on the sexist side – although I wouldn’t normally say that. Except it’s like, really? Has anyone asked whatshisname, the one who’s the head of Senate?

[Aide Jorge Aguilar who is sitting beside Pelosi] McConnell.

McConnell. I mean he’s got the lowest numbers of anybody in the world. Have you ever gone up to him and said, “How much longer do you think you’ll stay in this job?” Nobody ever went up to Harry Reid and said that. Nobody ever says that to anybody except a woman. But it’s a thing.

Well, see, Nancy here’s the thing, earlier in the article you call yourself a virtuoso in getting Democrats to vote lockstep. That may be true, but the problem for you is that the people out on the fruited plain don’t want your brand of governing. It doesn’t matter if you are peddling it, Corey Booker, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz or anyone else. It’s anti-American. We the people voted for change. Either get with the programs we want to be passed, or you all will be irrelevant until the Democratic party is a footnote in history.
