House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must have been trying out her Tina Fey routine last week when she said in all seriousness,
“Elect us, hold us accountable, and make a judgment and then go from there. But I do tell you that if the Democrats win and have substantial majorities, Congress of the United States will be more bipartisan,” said Pelosi.
A Democratic majority in the House, a Democratic majority in the Senate, and the most liberal Democrat ever elected as president, and the Congress will be more bipartisan! That has to rank up there with some of the most absurd comments ever made since man first learned to talk.
I’m used to having politicians lie, but to totally insult my intelligence is utterly reprehensible.
In Pelosi’s perfect world, bipartisan is Republicans supporting Democrat policies. When Republican Chuck Hagel votes with Democrats, that’s bipartisan. And when Democrat Joe Lieberman supports the Commander in Chief in a time of war? That’s not being bipartisan – that’s treason.
