I’d like to understand something that only our conservative posters can probably explain:
What’s your issue with Nancy Pelosi?
Yes, she’s a Democrat. I get that. Yes, she’s from San Francisco. And yes, I understand the political usefulness of casting her as a real-life Emmanuel Goldstein, an Object of Hate. That was particularly true back before the Democrats had such an obvious party leader in President Obama.
But I’d like to see specific things that Pelosi has said or done that might justify the level of vilification directed at her, because as far as I can tell it’s vastly out of scale to her alleged crimes.
For example, I regularly get emails containing a collection of outrageous statements by Pelosi, but when you read those quotes and try to trace them back to their source, they all turn out to be fake.
If you have to fabricate quotations in order to justify hating someone, doesn’t that kind of tell you something?
(Typo corrected above)
UPDATE: Well, as of 6:30, with roughly 30 comments logged, I’ve got what I expected: Expressions of hatred, but no explanation for it. No specific act or statement to justify it. Just variations on “I can’t stand her!”
So it remains a mystery. Won’t somebody solve it for me?
