Pelosi Says She Faced Male Chauvinism While House Speaker... Fire it up

76 Share Reuters

By ZIP, Weasel Zippers

Cry me a river, Pelosi is a pit bull.

Via National Journal:

NJ: Why did the Republicans make you an issue? Is it because, as with Hillary Rodham Clinton, some voters aren’t comfortable with a strong woman leader?

PELOSI: First of all, we were effective at making change. What did we do but stand in the way of Wall Street, big health insurers, Big Oil, and people opposed to collective bargaining? My situation was different from Hillary in that most people did not know me. If your opponents want to mischaracterize you, they can say anything, and they had endless money, secretly amassed. But it was not just about that. It was 9.5 percent unemployment. It didn’t matter if you said to people, “It would be 15 percent if we hadn’t done what we did.” If you don’t have a job, that is all you know.

NJ: What kind of chauvinism have you faced in Congress?

PELOSI: At first the men thought having women in the House was nice. Then they started to get a little threatened—it wasn’t as cute. When I decided to run for leadership, they said, “Who said she could run?”

The last refuge of scoundrels. I bet she’d say she was a victim of racism if she were black.

She’s a worthless piece of excrement, just like her male democrat buddies. Democrats are equal opportunity vermin.

Everytime I hear some female politician bitch and moan about discrimination, I watch this video as antidote:

Lady Thatcher never played the discrimination card and didn’t need to.

Spare me, as if she has had a difficult life. When Dems sense defeat, they pull out the usual cards such as discrimination. Meanwhile, she is probably a bigger sexist than 99% of males she detests.

The Iron Lady was never a victim because she refused to let herself become one, this is how you sucessfully fight idiots and a-holes in general.

People who let themselves become victims wallow in their victim-hood and never grow.

Nancy P. is a case of arrested development and she is older than the cryptkeeper.

A sure sign of someone’s career in decline and without any real hope of recovery: blame racism, bigotry, sexism, homophobia on personal shortcomings.

Sorry Nancy, no sale.

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy,

It’s not because you’re a woman.

It’s because you are an ignorant sl*t.

My wife could out think you when she was only 2.

(Heck, she out thinks me all the time. )

Anyone who has attained the position of Speaker of the House, and then tells the American people in all seriousness that ‘we must pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it,’ is not someone that American voters should ever take seriously about anything.

Whatever the opposite of "you"...there is always chauvinism...

Tall/short, fat/skinny, dark/light, smart/dumb, ...

It's where that "sticks and stones" makes more sense than all the damn fuss we given to these "contrary" cases.

Can the cry-baby, poor-little-me act, Pelosi. Your pa was a crooked Democrat politician in bed with the mob in Baltimore. You learned everything you needed to know about politics at your father’s knee. He may have forgotten to tell you that when you stab people in the back, they tend to hate your guts.

The picture of you parading through the crowd of Tea Party members with your giant gavel the day ObamaCare was railroaded through Congress should be the picture printed with your obituary. That was the most disgusting abuse of the office of Speaker on record.

It is time to simply stop pretending to treat progressives as equals or even trying to have a civil debate of any kind with them simply for the sake of politeness.

It is time to just laugh out loud at them and everything they say. Laugh at them in debates, news conferences, in the halls of Congress and in the workplace. Point at them, laugh at them, ridicule them and hold them in complete contempt.

They cannot be treated with civility. If they are, it just makes them think they are not the intellectual midgets that they are. It gives credence to their lies. Everything they say is preposterous and should be treated as such.

The power they hold is no laughing matter but they should be publicly mocked at every opportunity to let them know just how idiotic they sound to the rest of us.

Does anyone have the photo of Steny Hoyer carrying her purse like an obedient puppy?

She emasculated the DemocRat males and whined like a spoiled little girl when confronted by one GOP man (don’t remember who it was).

Catty & batty.

Conservatives opposed Pelosi's socialism because she's female? Why didn't we oppose Palin, Bachmann, and Margaret Thatcher?

Conservatives Obama's socialism because he's black? Why didn't we oppose West, Cain, and Sowell?

I don't think this is stupidity on Pelosi's part - she's evil but not dumb. She knows her charges are false - it's not like she never considered the possibility that it's her socialism we despise. Liberals lie; it's just what they do.

Then they started to get a little threatened

Perhaps the realization that they had elected a paranoid idiot made them that way. Stating that you have to pass the biggest piece of legislation to go thru Congress in the past 20 years " in order to see what's in it " would make anyone feel threatened, it certainly did me.

This is the catch-all for female failure, as racism is the catch-all for unassimilated ethnic minorities. Everything except responsibility for one’s own performance...

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.
