Pelosiís Critics Court a Rival for Speaker (Here come da Fudge!)
Wall Street Journal ^ | 11/15/18 | Joshua Jamerson, Natalie Andrews

Posted on 11/15/2018 6:24:50 PM PST by Libloather

**SNIP**

Ms. Fudge is thinking about challenging Mrs. Pelosi, said Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn (D., S.C.), who spoke with the Ohioan on Thursday. Mr. Clyburn, the top-ranking black lawmaker in the House, said he didn’t encourage or discourage Ms. Fudge, who is also black, to run. Both are members of the influential Congressional Black Caucus, whose ranks include about 45 House Democrats.

A representative for Ms. Fudge didn’t respond to requests for an interview. She told Cleveland.com, her hometown news outlet, on Wednesday that she was giving it some thought. “I am at the very beginning of this process,” she said. “It is just in discussion at this point.”

Ms. Fudge is also a member of the progressive caucus, which represents the Democratic Party’s left wing. She was first elected to the House in 2008 to represent a swath of northeast Ohio near Cleveland, and was chairwoman of the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Think of the fun that will be had with her name. Trump will probably call her "Melted Fudge" or "Sour Fudge" something like that.

"Ms. Fudge, who is also black"

I din't know that 'till now. I think Mad Max would be a better choice. Though Occasional Cortex should be in the running.

I agree.

That is Rep. Marcia “Nutty” Fudge, who wants Pelosi’s job.

SMH in disbelief at what passes for a house representative today.

She may be smart, but she won’t be as brilliant as Sheila Lee.

Who famously remarked at how well North And South Vietnam are CURRENTLY getting along.

You can’t make that stuff up.

And will sit on the Science and Technology Committee, and famously asked a guide if the Mars Pathfinder had driven over to where Neil Armstrong left the American flag!!!

ROFL!!!

If I was there, what I would have said out loud instinctively, would have destroyed my career and put my life in harm’s way.

Thank goodness we have the constitution, which was written in the early 1600s, to protect freedom of speech.

If it’s Fudge, the wimpy republicans will roll over for her and give her whatever she wants.

Hmmm... wonder how many House Republicans are members of that caucus?

That’s why I described them both as the same. I was being facetious. Lol

:)

There’s other gems but I forget. I know she throws phones at people and tortures airlines with her requests.

I won’t call her what she is.

I may look later at the best of Lee’s comments.

Right now I’m just trying to absorb what CA folks are telling me about that fire.

I had no idea fire could rage like that.

Doesn’t happen often in a cement town like NYC.

My heart truly goes out to those affected.
