Nancy Pelosi and the end of civilization as we know it
The Yahoo News headline begins: “Nancy Pelosi: Civilization ‘In Jeopardy’”
I held my breath and thought, could it be? Is Pelosi actually going to say something sane about the threat of ISIS, or even (gasp) jihad?
But, of course, it was not to be as I finished reading: “Nancy Pelosi: Civilization ‘In Jeopardy’ if GOP Takes Senate”
I know the woman is a loon, but it’s still quite shocking to bump up against her lunacy.
Anyway, she was speaking with Bill Maher. (What a pair, right?)
When asked why he should care if the GOP wins the Senate in November, Pelosi had this to say (while smiling broadly, which is the facial mask of progressives no matter what the topic and even if they haven’t had 1,000 years worth of plastic surgery): “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy.”
Wow! That’s like the war on women on steroids. Now the GOP is a threat to all of civilization?
Pelosi went on to say that 50% of Americans don’t even know there are mid-term elections and how that needs to change. In the next breath, she said that “people are very wise.” Maher asked her how it could be that half the country doesn’t realize there are mid-term elections and be very wise at the same time.
They both laughed it off. (Like I said, laughing is a progressive specialty, particularly when things get awkward.)
Speaking about the economy, Pelosi had this to say: “We are not fear mongers. The Democrats are messengers of hope.”
Speaking about ISIS, it was hard to determine which of this pair was more idiotic, but here’s one more Pelosi gem: “I think war is not a way to resolve conflict…It only begets more war.”
Hey, I have an idea. Can someone send a tweet to ISIS that says: Wage peace. I think that might do the trick.
