There are strong women (Amy Coney Barrett) and there are women who can only pretend (Nancy Pelosi). From Tom Lungo at Tom Luongo.me:
Something truly amazing happened this week in American politics. The false narratives of modern feminism collapsed completely as Judge Amy Coney Barrett waltzed through her confirmation hearing.
But to make my point I first have to deal with Speaker of the House Nasty Nancy Pelosi’s appearance on CNN.
While Barrett was dealing with the dementia of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Pelosi finally came face to face with strength in the unlikely form of Wolf Blitzer and lost complete control of his Situation Room.
If you watch this entire sequence carefully you’ll note that Blitzer simply held to his point that she wouldn’t answer, why not pass some stimulus bill now and get something done, even if it’s perfect?
Madame Speaker, you have a chance to alleviate suffering and you’re playing politics.
We know what the answer is, because it would allow President Trump a victory on the eve of an election. We know Pelosi is a pure political animal (and her behavior here truly sinks to that level).
But, that’s not what’s interesting, here.
It is how transparent she is about not automatically being allowed to control the conversation to recite her talking points. She obviously feels entitled to the power of Wolf’s platform.
