Nancy Pelosi is claiming to be a “Washington Outsider“.
Well, she’s doing a good job of being a “Washington Outsider” right now! She’s been “Outside” Washington since August 1st.
Meanwhile, thousands of regular citizens have turned themselves into “Washington Insiders” by visiting the House of Representatives and sitting in the seats normally occupied by members of the House.
In fact, more people have been “doing the job that Pelosi and the Democrats won’t do” than have bought Nancy’s book. Oh, the schadenfreude!
As much as I don’t want to see Sheehan in Congress, I would take that trade in order to let Nancy Pelosi know that “We the People” “Know OUR Power”.
September 12th UPDATE:
If Democrats lose the House, they can look back to Pelosi’s adjournment as their tipping point. She may have singlehandedly transformed her party, which looked like it couldn’t lose this year, into a minority in the House.
