House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has never been known for any significant degree of verbal felicity. This is a woman whose career will likely be remembered for a cataclysmic turn of phrase that came to define the entire Obamacare debacle: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”
However, it’s become clear in recent months that Rep. Pelosi’s condition has degraded from an unfortunate inarticulateness into a genuinely problematic inability to express herself coherently. Nowhere was that more evident than a Thursday news conference that ended up sounding about as coherent as a Pete Dohertyinterview.
“It’s afternoon. It is afternoon. Good afternoon everyone,” she began by muttering.
Then, just moments later: “Thank you for being here. I’m honored this morning, or now afternoon…”
She then went on to talk about the Republicans’ attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare.
“And what does that mean? Higher costs, fewer benefits, uh, terrible age tax undermining Medicare, uh, uh, stealing from Medicare and Maid-icaid, as I should have said,” Pelosi said, mispronouncing the program.
“As they do this, they’re making an assault on Medicaid, which is, again, very dangerous to children and other living ch– things should they succeed,” she continued.
Yeah, those grasshoppers are really going to miss their birth control.
Then she proved how far gone she’s gotten with her conspiracy-mongering over Russia, which she promptly forgot about.
“They hacked our democracy. Twenty-one state, local election systems were per– penetrated,” Pelosi said.
Six minutes later, she was unable to remember that very salient detail.
“We’re finding out things that we didn’t even know before. For example, was it — how many states have been compromised in all of this?” she asked Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi.
“Twenty-one,” Thompson said quietly.
“Twenty-one. Twenty — twenty-one states,” she replied.
First, it was just embarrassing. Now, it’s become clear Pelosi is too far gone to lead the Democrats.
But don’t tell her that. After Jon Ossoff’s loss in the Georgia special election triggered calls for her resignation, she insisted she was a “master legislator.”
“People just flock to support me,” Pelosi said in a remarkably smug news conference. “I think I’m worth it.”
For a laugh, yes. For Republicans, yes.
If you’re a Democrat, definitely not.
