What's wrong with Nancy Pelosi anyway?
It's not like she has been married 3 times. It's not like she is a big gambling addict. It's not like she tries to protect pedophiles in her caucus. It's not like she tries to get prescription drugs illegally.

And I don't have the statistics in front of me - but I'm willing to bet Oklahoma and Alabama has more social problems than the people in San Francisco.

As for abortion, if Democrats take back the Congress, I wouldn't be surprised if the abortion rate goes down.

3. The list of what's right with Nancy Pelosi is a very long one and I
challenge the Republicans to acknowledge her many strengths.

If we can give the Democratic Party a House majority on Nov. 7th, I'm wildly enthusiastic about a Speaker Pelosi.

5. Don't kid yourself, it's not her they're afraid of.
It's Conyers !! I hope he has the subpoenas all addressed.

6. The Repukes are just doing what they always do -- engaging in
character assassination, demonizing people without anything to back it up, because that's all they have. Fear, terror, evil, blah blah blah. They avoid discussing the issues, because they don't have anything of substance to discuss. What a bunch of fuggin' asshats.

7. She's a democrat. Insert any other name and the attacks would be just
as ridiculous.

10. She's a female who is not on CNN, in a centerfold or a part of Right to Life.
She doesn't do baby food commercials, model clothing or take her clothes off in rock and roll videos.

In other words...she is a serious woman doing a serious job. Yikes!

14. I'll second that.
Nancy was my congresswoman when I lived in San Francisco. Not only did she hit the ground running when she was first elected in 1987 for our city, but she worked her butt off for the democratic party.

I'm proud to say she was my congresswoman and will be proud to address her a "Madam Speaker".

:loveya: Nancy!

22. I'm all for subpoenas...
I'd like to see El Diablo forced to testify under oath at a Congressional hearing where John Conyers is in charge. But I still want the end product to be Bush hauled out of the White House by the Marines who once stood guard at the front door.

15. If you say "Oh no vote Democratic and You get Nancy Pelosi"
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 07:59 PM by Warren Stupidity
And act as if that is of course a very scary prospect, and do so with the usual greek chorus of the bullshit media system, the question of why Nancy Pelosi is scary is irrelevant. Consider how this tactic worked with the word 'liberal'.

19. Nothing. But the RR is trying to smear her with "gay" credentials
as far as I can tell.

I am in the heart of the midwest and I believe most midwesterners perceive of San Fran as the gay capital of the US.

This is an overt gay bashing meme from the RR. DON'T buy into this!!!!

21. San Fran is "code" for gay in the evangelical community
this is just another one of those attempts to reach a certain segment of the population that is homophobic.
