Pelosi Claims Spirits Spoke To Her In The White House


Former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi recently claimed to the Women’s Political Committee that spirits of departed feminists spoke to her in the Bush White House.

"And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were," said Pelosi. "More than I named and I could hear them say: 'At last we have a seat at the table.' And then they were gone."

And there you have it folks, the lady the enlightened leftists love and adore. The stalwart of liberalism. Maybe she consults with familiar spirits.

Dingbat Pelosi can't even come up with anything original. Here she simply mimics Hillary (The Wicked Witch of the West Wing) who [cue Twilight Zone theme music] claimed to have had intimate conversations with the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt.

But this is leftism on display. Fabricate a bunch of simple-minded touchy-feely stories, and hope that the gullible will swoon and swallow them. Sadly, as the election of 2008 proved, they will.

As for me, I'm taking my lunch today with the ghost of W.C. Fields. His sage advice will certainly come in handy.

I love and adore Nancy Pelosi. And you're clearly hair-on-fire desperate to talk about anything rather than Mitt Romney's tax returns.

I must disagree with my friend RB. This coconut is no hillary clinton. This coconut us uniquely coo-coo. I've said it before and I'll say it again this woman needs to be in a lock up ward. She is a danger to herself and to the country at large. And the people sitting there listening to her and chuckling along need to be right there with her. They are all so coo-coo that pelosi appears quite normal to them all. I think I'm gonna bwaaaaaah....

Ha ha ha ha ha ha! The people who need to be in lock up wards as dangers to themselves and the country are the ones who think the President faked being in college and was once married to a Pakistani guy. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Talk about lunatics?!?

Clear evidence that Pelosi has graduated from John Edward's "Channeling Spirits for Cash" seminar.

August 10, 2012 at 09:07 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

What were the darkest and most dangerous years of our Republic? The Civil War? No. The Great Depression? No. World War-2? No. They were the years Nanacy Pelosi was two heart beats away from being President. Let that statement sink in when we consider the sub-90 IQ resident we have for a Veep and the President who is so incompetent 'Community Organizer' was a stretch job prior to lying his way into the Senate & Presidency.

I wish Patton's ghost would slap some sense into that woman.

Think about what it actually reveals that Grayrider or CNS “News” would find anything creepy, bizarre, or off-putting about someone describing feeling part of a tradition and feeling the presence of deceased figures whose values they share and whose lives’ work they admire and respect.

If someone spoke about feeling the presence or the spirit of Ronald Reagan or Barry Goldwater they would be touched and find this completely unremarkable. It’s a huge failure of normal human empathy that when someone they regard as an “Other” (woman, Democrat, feminist) does exactly the same thing, they view the exact same process and the exact same emotions as some sort of sick and wacky superstition (or pretend to).

There’s something very wrong with many conservatives, on a personal level. Either they sincerely don’t understand these are normal human processes and emotions (i.e., they’re emotionally stupid) or they know it but consciously and deliberately choose to pretend they’re not, in an attempt to score dumbass political points (evil).

I know that Pelosi is trying (as hard as her little pea-sized brain allows) to be known as the dumbest person ever to serve in Congress, but she does have some very stiff competition. Pelosi will have to try even harder to beat out the other room temperature IQ contenders, like Patty Murray (good guy Bin Laden builds schools), Sheila Jackson Lee (Neil Armstrong planted the flag on Mars), ex-member Cynthia McKinney (just pick a statement), Hank Johnson (Guam is gonna tip over), Patrick Kennedy (drunkenly bragging that he's never worked a day in his life), Marcy Kaptur (on budget committee, but doesn't know who Bernanke is), plus... well, the list is a long one.

Dangerous territory, Redbeard. Reactionaries/TeaBaggers hopelessly outclass Progressives/liberals in the Olympic Dim Bulb Category. We have a guy right on this board who can barely open his mouth without being wrong about something, as you well know.

August 10, 2012 at 09:53 | Registered CommenterWinston

Perhaps we're being too hard on Madam Pelosi. After all, she did manage to get some names right, unlike Al Gore, who couldn't come up with names to match busts of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.

Tijuana, I do tend to agree with you about the comparison between Hillary and Nancy. Hillary's fake sentimentality fabrications about Mrs. Roosevelt were far more imaginative and evocative. But then, Hillary has an IQ that probably breaks into the three digit range.

Didn't Obama mock Nancy Reagan for supposedly holding a seance in the White House?

August 10, 2012 at 10:39 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

If Mitt Romney were investing in a company, wouldn't he want to see more than two years of financial records?

August 10, 2012 at 11:13 | Registered CommenterChoy Lee Mu

Does a spell checker + thesaurus=intelligence? Someone on this board thinks so.

August 10, 2012 at 11:37 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

A few serious and sincere questions for you, Tom.
Does it ever bother you to be wrong so often about so much?
Does it ever make you question your sources of news and information?
Do you ever feel misled by your sources of news and information?
Do you think you could afford to be a more critical news consumer?
Is it something about your political beliefs that would lead you to falsely and offensively link a deranged mass killer to a social justice movement, to call blacks criminals, and to characterize a campaign worker for a candidate you dislike as “an easy piece of ass”? Or is that just your winning personality?
OK, the last two were a little less sincere. But no less serious.

I see from HuffPo that the latest lead balloon is to try and tie Mitt Romney to El Salvador death squads. Obama’s campaign mouthpiece Stephanie Goebbels must have seen the internal polls on the tax thing not working and like all good little brown shirts "go large or go home." So now Mitt Romney is tied to death squads... Desperate but predictable.

August 10, 2012 at 11:47 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller


In general your posts aren't worth responding to. Something about their nasty, cruel and pretentious nature drags me down to the gutter even thinking about a response.

August 10, 2012 at 11:53 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

The ultimate projection, I guess: "my nasty tone is your fault."

Look, there's nothing nasty or cruel about pointing out when someone is mistaken or wrong. That's the essence of debate. The simple fact is, you are wrong on your facts over and over and over and over.

Do you care? Or is that a choice?

August 10, 2012 at 12:04 | Registered CommenterWinston

Right you are, Tom. We're on the same page. There's no reason to try to engage in an actual debate or discussion with the likes of Winston, a person who seems to have as his (or her, we'll never know) goal the shredding of any glimmer of civility toward fellow members of this board.

Now wait for Winnie to chime in, crying big crocodile tears over how mean others have been to him, neglecting to factor in the obvious, that any mean comments directed his way were, and are, in response to his long-term and consistently disgusting displays.

August 10, 2012 at 12:07 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Dang. Winnie beat me to it. I hate it when he's so predictable AND so prompt.

August 10, 2012 at 12:10 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

"Stephanie Goebbels . . . little brown shirts"

Winning. I like it.

The Democrats have finally figured out how this game is played. And I couldn't be happier.

Stephanie Cutter is bailing out of her scheduled appearance on ABC's This Week show. Golly gee whiz, I wonder why? Davey Axelrod is going in her place, perhaps because he will have plausible deniability of the whole Joe Soptic lie that Cutter and the Obama campaign fabricated. It will be interesting to see how he fends off the inevitable questions, though.

August 10, 2012 at 12:58 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

How long before "Mitt Romney started Bain Capital on the backs of El Salvador Death Squads" lie comes back to Cutter?

Red; your partially right; a lying bitch like Cutter will be less and less accessible as the campaign moves on. She's too valuable to Obama thinking up the diversion of the hour to keep Americans minds off the shit swamp President Soetoro has turned America into.

August 10, 2012 at 13:51 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

So then, parse every word and phrase that someone you disagree with says, yet the dingbat you claim to "love and adore" claims these dead people ACTUALLY spoke to her, which she took as a sign to continue in her policy beliefs is somehow nuttery on my part???


August 10, 2012 at 18:11 | Registered CommenterGrayRider

Thank you to the person who killed the autoplay of Pelosi's clip. Listening to a lunatic speak, over and over again, isn't much fun.

August 12, 2012 at 13:08 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Forget that last post. That awful voice is back.

August 12, 2012 at 17:37 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

You can find a lot of such statements about as a rule most of them are just a banal way to attract attention and gain fame.
