Nancy Pelosi: Hey, I Sort of Enjoy Teabagging
— Ace

...with my leathery hagtongue.

I think the whole country needs a safe word.

How big of an impact has the Tea Party made? Enough of an impact that even Nancy Pelosi is now claiming to "share some views" with the Tea Partiers.

Which views?

Um... Well, how the Tea Partiers object to special interests in politics and are all fired up about the Citizens United ruling.
'
Let's see if I have this straight: Nancy Pelosi actually "shares some views" with the Tea Partiers, at least when she seeks to court them. Meanwhile, when liberals wish to denigrate the Tea Party movement, they continue insisting the Tea Party "shares some views" with IRS kamikazee Andrew Joseph Stack III.

Frank Rich:

What made that kamikaze mission eventful was less the deranged act itself than the curious reaction of politicians on the right who gave it a pass — or, worse, flirted with condoning it. Stack was a lone madman, and it would be both glib and inaccurate to call him a card-carrying Tea Partier or a “Tea Party terrorist.” But he did leave behind a manifesto whose frothing anti-government, anti-tax rage overlaps with some of those marching under the Tea Party banner. That rant inspired like-minded Americans to create instant Facebook shrines to his martyrdom. Soon enough, some cowed politicians, including the newly minted Tea Party hero Scott Brown, were publicly empathizing with Stack’s credo — rather than risk crossing the most unforgiving brigade in their base.

....

It is not glib or inaccurate to invoke Oklahoma City in this context, because the acrid stench of 1995 is back in the air. Two days before Stack’s suicide mission, The Times published David Barstow’s chilling, months-long investigation of the Tea Party movement. Anyone who was cognizant during the McVeigh firestorm would recognize the old warning signs re-emerging from the mists of history. The Patriot movement. “The New World Order,” with its shadowy conspiracies hatched by the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission. Sandpoint, Idaho. White supremacists. Militias.

Liberals continue reading "anti-government" as Tea Party/conservative, despite the fact that leftwing communists and anarchists are also quite "anti-government," just in a very different way.

And they continue to ignore the final statement in Stack's manifesto:

The communist creed: From each according to his ability to each according to his need.

The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility to each according to his greed.

Every G-20 or IMF summit features black-bandaned anarchists throwing stones through windows, throwing stones at policemen, and setting cars on fire. The leftist media never connects such people up with non-extremist politics; indeed, they are very careful never to even utter the word "leftist." They call such people, specifically, "anti-globalism protesters."

But of course they fall over themselves to connect up every possible bad actor with broader, non-extremist political movements on the right.

Even in the case of a guy who concludes his manifesto/suicide note with a communist slogan. So, apparently, much of the Tea Party movement is animated by a burning desire to impose a full communist system on the United States.

This, presumably, would be among the "views" of the Tea Party movement that Nancy Pelosi "shares."

So, Nancy is now with the Nazis?

It is getting really tough to keep up here.

4 So, if Pelosi shares many values with the Tea Partiers, then didn't the NYTimes just call her a terrorist sympathizer?

7 Are her poll numbers taking a dive..... (he wonders with hopey and changey thoughts....)?
Or is it that she just "wants a seat at the table", "under the big tent"..... when a new Congress is sworn in?

How come she doesnt join the new coffee enema party ? Kos says its up to 29,000 members now, which is at least 2.9 million by msm standards.

9 Well I suppose this just goes to show that if you cant beat them you may as well join them. Or in Pelosi's case if you cant Alynskie them, try to co-opt their movement and drive a wedge into its power base.

12 Pelosi and the Democrat/Media Party spent months trying to intimidate the TEA Party people so they would shut up and go away.  Now that hag 'shares values' with the TEA Party eh?  That is just so special.

Posted by: kefka at February 28, 2010 08:28 AM (n1uMU)

13 I think you misquoted his manifesto.  I don't believe he replaced "ability" with "gullibility" in his line about communism.  He reserved that for capitalism alone.

14 Frank Rich is a leftist, which means he personally condones the murder of 100 million human beings by all those the "extremist" Communists over the past 100 years.

I never understood Frank Rich. He is never that original, recycling Daily Kos conventional "wisdom" here, and even among obnoxious liberal pundits, is much more obnoxious than most. He is simply mean, without being clever about it.

I'll sometimes read lib pundits just to see what the other side is saying -- but not Rich, because he really isn't even good for that. The reason Rich's column sometimes fills up half a damn newspage, is because he is incapable of making a solid point within a traditional column length, like his Times brethren.

Regardless of ideology, that's simply bad writing. Especially when most of his copy is devoted to blatant ad hominem.

So yeah, I hope The Times keeps him exactly where he's at. It's not like he influencing anyone who ain't already been influenced.

Waste that space Frank. Waste it good.

18 Watching Pelosi trying to wriggle her way under the Tea Party umbrella is priceless. Little does she know, or perhaps want to face, that the Tea Parties are as much a reaction to her, personally, as to anyone or anything else. We've had onerous Speakers before, but never such a complete and total scrunt.

I titally support the ideas of the Tea Party.  That's why I am pushing the healthcare bill as hard as I possibly can.  Because that's what the Tea Partiers woudl want me to do.

27

yes, her comments offended me because I used to consider myself a TEA partier.

but here in the 5th CD Va, the TEA party candidates running in the Republican primary say they don't want Republican help & will run as a 3d party if they fail to win the nomination by primary (which in VA they can't do, but that doesn't stop them from talking about it).

so here in rural Virginia, the TEA parties are shooting themselves & the Republican party in the foot.

29 Pelosi still hasn't figured out that as speaker her responsibilities go beyond making San Francisco proud.  It's like she thinks what is good for her constituents is good for everybody else.  That view even endangers other more moderate donks.

When viewed, Nanzi is similar to the Tea Pariers in one respect.  Picture a tea bag.  Repeatedly used.  Then left on the counter to dry.

See the resemblance?

I've always thought hagtongue would somehow be more sandpapery than leathery...oh well.

I await the day the P-lousy turns over the Speaker position to someone else (please let it be someone she detests, then the schadenfruede would flow all the more sweetly and copiously) -- I hope it  is televised; I will be knitting ringside and cheering it on.

Thanks to her nut-bag constituency she's not likely to lose her job any time soon, but after four years of mocking and sneering at conservatives it would be ball-dippingly good to see her lose the Speaker position and be relegated to a back-bencher.

59 I'm beginning to take the view that the MSM, being the leftist, liberal cheering section that hasn't done any vetting of any leftist, liberal comments/lies to any extent, is actually a good thing.

They're automatic printing/airing of any leftist/liberal claptrap is exposing the mental disease that possesses all leftist/liberals for anyone to see and compare with their own views or with other more reality-based opinions.

Never before have so many loonies been given searchlight like attention because until recently the MSM had a modicum of sanity and realized that they lived in a world inhabited by some sane people (or a lot of armed conservatives) and had to tone down some of the really, really edgy rhetoric. Now that they've gone all in on a socialist takeover of the U.S. they've thrown caution to the winds and will let anyone who calls themselves liberal to spout the most inane and ridiculous things. Mostly because deep down these people we read and listen to have really been THIS NUTS THEMSELVES. They print this stuff because IT MAKES SENSE TO THEM.

That's something to think about, isn't it?

Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews are not alone. They have counterparts in every newsroom in print and broadcast media. They just weren't allowed out before.

That they are so desparate and without any check on their irrationallity is an indication that they feel they are losing and that they're losing because they're wrong.

62 When I heard some tax resister had done this, I thought it might be Charlie Rangel. Then I remembered that he writes tax law.

Then I thought "Maybe it was that tax rebel, Tim Geithner." Then I remembered he enforces tax law.

Then I thought "Bombing a federal building...that sounds like Bill Ayers!" But then I remembered he writes autobiographies.

Then it hit me:

Stack wrote a paranoid and delusional screed, irrationally blaming others for his own multiple and manifest shortcomings in some sort of immature primal scream-temper tantrum.

...just like Frank Rich!
