Pelosi’s Life, A Study In Contrast

In a NYT story about Nancy Pelosi (and the Times infatuation with the possibility of her becomming Speaker) Pelosi said that she was the bogeyman because of her traditional values. But later in the story she contradicts the pretty picture of herself that she tried to paint.

“I am an Italian-American Catholic grandmother,” she said, “very traditional in terms of values.”
[…]
In Congress, Ms. Pelosi has been particularly interested in intelligence issues and has strongly supported abortion rights. She has also shown sharp-elbowed partisanship and old-school pragmatism and collegiality. (emphasis added)

The first part was basically her answer as to why people (on the right) attack her. In this sentence she wants us to believe that because she is Italian and a grandmother and has “traditional values” she is a target. Since the Republican party is often seen as the party of people with more traditional values, why would anyone on the right attack her for that, if it were true. The second part shows us that she really does not have traditional values, especially for a Catholic. She invoked her religion and then tells us she advocates something that is absolutely opposed by the very religion she claims to follow. The idea that she is traditional in values is laughable.

San Fran Nan has a net worth of about 16 million dollars. She lives in an expensive house and has businesses where she employs non-union labor and employs labor tactics that go against everything that she publicly claims to support. I do not deny her the money and the business, she earned it the old fashioned way by marrying a man who made money. That is all well and good but this woman is so out of touch with the average person she did not know what a curly french fry was.

If we wake up after the election in November and hear the words “Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi” it will be a dark day in the United States.
