Pelosi to DNC: Your resolution honoring me doesn’t go far enough

The word “chutzpah” came to mind after reading this:

The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor Nancy Pelosi Thursday — but its praise wasn’t good enough for the House minority leader.

When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.

“I have some friendly amendments,” said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee.

“You think I’m kidding,” Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.

First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was “why she went to Congress.” Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her “accomplishments for equality,” mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in December.

“Finally, since, as she said, ‘I’m not going anywhere,’ she wanted to add, in the final ‘whereas’ clause, ‘…and will continue the fight for America’s working families,'” Christine Pelosi said.

The committee applauded that point, and approved the amended resolution on a voice vote.

No mention anywhere, though of how many thousands of unborn babies have been terminated in San Francisco thanks to her decades-old tireless support of “women’s reproductive health rights” aka abortion. Oh well …

    That Resolutions Committee meeting sounds like a spin-off of Monty Python’s skit where all these spineless execs are kissing up to an ego-maniacal Hollywood producer, agreeing with all his mindless and ludicrous drivel for a movie idea.

  2. Phineas says:

    Nate, I think you’ve just described the Democratic caucus. :D

    Really? Another word comes to my mind, however, your rules on posting forbid me to write it.

    :d

  4. she forgot to mention the record debt, the lost jobs, and supporting every law the majority of the people opposed.

  5. Tex says:

    I move that Nancy Pelosi be given the title of “Her Royal Heinie”.

  6. Lorica says:

    LOL Talking about Monty Python, this reminds me of the society of putting things on top of other things. Nancy Pelosi has put on top of our debt more things(other debt) than all of the other speakers of the house combined. Now that is an accomplishment. LOL God Bless their deceived little minds. – Lorica

  7. PE says:

    Nancy’s words are her reality. She speaks of great accomplishments and they become real and her minions rejoice
    in the euphoria she bestows.

  8. Chris says:

    But enough talking about me….

    So, what do you think about me?

    Obama, Reid, Pelosi — A narcassistic trifecta…

    …in a race of horses’ @sses

  9. Carlos says:

    Oh, come on, PE. It’s the only reality she has.

    Question: If our country fell into the abyss Nazi created, would she still be an idiot?

    Answer: Of course.

  10. Kate says:

    How about that amazing accomplishment of losing the democratic majority in the house????

    Any takers?

    Oh. My. Gawd.

    I have watched Nancy Pelosi throughout her entire career, and I can say without fear of contradiction that she didn’t run for Congress because of HIV and AIDS. She went because she grew up a Democrat Party princess (as daughter of the former mayor of Baltimore, Thomas D’Alessandro) and this was the next step up for a woman raised around political power brokers who was already the CA Dem Party Chair(wo)man.

    Pelosi was hand-picked by terminally ill Congresswoman Sala Burton to replace her. Sala was the widow of Phillip Burton, who had held the seat for two decades before he died and Sala replaced him. Phillip Burton and his Congressman brother John (an unpleasant, profane man whom I’ve had the displeasure of meeting) ran the Dem machine that gave California Jerry Brown, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and Willie Brown (partial list).

    Pelosi’s arrogance is already the stuff of legend, but in a nutshell, her character can be summed up in this action of amending her own tribute; she wanted an honor to her to be changed to tell future generations how selfless she really is.

    I would imagine the person who painted her official portrait as House Speaker probably had to smooth out wrinkles in her face constantly to match her latest procedures.

    Peeloser is the best example of your brain on drugs I’ve ever seen.
    She and Charlie Sheen should get together and go bowling, or something.

  13. Sefton says:

    If any of those committee members had half a spine, they would have suggested to Christine that perhaps her mother can wait to see what was in the resolution after they pass it.
    Sarcastic barb included.

    Not to mention if they had any spine, they wouldn’t be passing foolish resolutions like this one. More apt would be a federal arrest warrant for crimes against the U.S. Constitution. She, Reid and Obama could share the same cell.

  14. Phineas says:

    L.N. Smithee:

    Oh, yeah. I remember John Burton: a professional pol and a real foul-mouthed piece of work. He was a real PITA for both Govs. Deukmejian and Wilson, and was so anti-business, it was pathetic. The mess we’re in is due partly to his fine work.

  15. CA Mom says:

    She is truly a legend in her own mind…

  16. Glenn Bergen says:

    Did someone mention Obama, Pelosi and Reid in the same sentence ? Now there’s the Trinity of Trite. As for Pelosi’s selflessness; now that she is no longer Speaker, has she returned the Boeing 737 to its rightful owners?

  17. Carlos says:

    Glenn, don’t you mean the Trinity of Tripe?

    And Sefton, if any of those committee members had half a spine they wouldn’t be Democraps now, would they?

  18. Mike in Baltimore says:

    13.Sefton-

    If they had a spine, they wouldn’t be democrats.

  19. Glenn Bergen says:

    Its not a matter of the Resolutions Commitee having half a spine; you give them too much credit. The members of the Resolutions Commitee are formed by members of the single cell division.
