Huh. I suppose the boys in the backroom at the RNC who concocted this “Pelosi Galore” ad patted themselves on the back for dreaming up such a clever a pun, but if Republicans are serious about closing the ever widening gender gap, I don’t think calling the highest ranking female in US history a “bitch,” a “hag,” and a “pussy” is the most effective way to do it.

You forgot the Newt Gingrich counterpart to this.

2. vanderleun spews:

One could simply ask “Which is it, Nancy: Ignorant or Incompetent?” and wait for an intelligible answer.

3. Roger Rabbit spews:

@2 So now the GOP’s pitch to the American public is that they successfully lied to the Speaker of the House? This is a reason to elect them?

4. Politically Incorrect spews:

I think Pelosi said it was the CIA that lied to her, not the GOP. Though I’m sure the GOP would like to lie to her, too.

Anyway, her little comment pissed off Leon Pinetta (SP?), so it’s in the news. Hell, if it was some GOP guy who accused the CIA of lying, the Dems would take the ball and run with it. Olbermann, Colbert, Letterman, et. al., would be all over it.

In a couple of weeks this will all be over. Something else will replace it as the “hot topic.”

5. ByeByeGOP spews:

Interesting that Newt the Hoot called the CIA liars – as did John BONER but I guess that’s okay with the right wing cowards since those assholes are Publicans.

6. Shocking spews:

I wouldn’t call her a pussy, but shes definitely and devious nerve wrecked shaky little bag of lies.

7. ByeByeGOP spews:

Speaking of assholes, anyone need a poke?

9. kirk91 spews:

Why not just call her a spineless sell out like those of us who wish the Dems would stand up for anything that is remotely progressive or beneficial for anyone who isn’t a banker or health industry CEO.

10. Roger Rabbit spews:

@4 This is nothing but a fabricated (and extremely lame) attempt by the Republican Noise Machine to divert public attention away from the fact they behaved like Nazis when they were in power.

11. Roger Rabbit spews:

I remember when the Israeli Mossad whacked the wrong guy in Sweden or someplace like that. At least they had to decency to pay compensation to his family. These GOP fuckers don’t even want our government to pay redress to the innocent people they wrongly imprisoned and tortured. What a nice bunch of people. Don’t buy any lampshades from them …

12. Don Joe spews:

PI @ 4

Hell, if it was some GOP guy who accused the CIA of lying, the Dems would take the ball and run with it.

Well, that’s exactly what Newt Gingrich did in his 2008 CPAC speech (I linked to the video in my comment at 1). So, where was all the liberal outcry back then? A web search for “Newt Gingrich NIE” doesn’t turn up any liberal outcry. The only reason we bring it up now is to show the depth of Republican hypocrisy.

Seriously, dude, if you’re going to keep up this “Republicans are bad, but Democrats are bad too” schtick you’re going to have to come up with something that’s not so easily refuted.

13. Mark1 spews:

‘RNC calls Pelosi a pussy’

They should’ve called her a lying, hypocritcal pussy. She keeps digging, and her hole is getting deeper. Fitting. How any of you morons, partianship aside can defend the undefendable is beyond me. Seek help.

ahh..GOP still classy..bring David Duke back into the GOP fold and it will be the perfect alienate USA trifecta.

stillbentover@8: Sorry dude, you can’t even write like me fool! Your love of the hershey highway for additional buttputty is amazing. Maybe you should call Ekim.

17. Darryl spews:

ByeByeGOP,
Don’t spoof other people’s screen names. That is verboten.

18. headless spews:

re17: They did it to him first. Quit being such a pussy.

19. Darryl spews:

headless,

“They did it to him first.”

Quite irrelevant.

Feel free to email instances of such spoofing and I’ll delete those comments too.

20. Don Joe spews:

I think they’d have done better to have spoofed this. I can just see Newt Gingrich delivering John Cleese’s “She turned me into a Newt!”

21. Another TJ spews:

Funny take on the “ad” from Tim F. at Balloon Juice:

Ya know, in James Bond film intros it’s Bond framed in the barrel of the gun. The blood belongs to the shooter, who gets drilled by Bond and dies. If I get the analogy right, Nancy Pelosi is James bond, the CIA tried to shoot her but she was too quick for them and they went down instead.

Um, ok.

22. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

Hey Darryl, thank you for deleting my fake responses. The fool is a loser.

23. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

Hey headles, with your too numerous sock puppets, please so us all your other names you use here. Someone spoofing that moron has to be on your side.

24. busted ravioli spews:

The Democratic Party now favors indefinite custody without charge and military trials.

Five months into this ‘project’ and you fucks still believe the rhetoric. Pathetic.

25. slingshot spews:

The Republican should be relieved that she’s a pussy. If the Democrats had real leaders, Bush and Cheney et al, would be on trial by now.

26. Roger Rabbit spews:

Of all the bullshit bandied about by wingnuts, the claim that Gov. Gregoire is fiscally irresponsible ranks high on the list.

Business Week, a pro-business newsmagazine, published the following facts:

47 states have budget shortfalls. [The three who don't -- Montana, Wyoming, and North Dakota -- all are lightly populated states with large oil and gas revenues.]

The total shortfall is $350 billion. [An average of about $7.5 billion per state, in roughly the same ballpark as Washington's.]

16 states have already raised taxes and 17 other states are considering doing so. [Washington is, therefore, in a minority among states as one that didn't.]

In short, if Gregoire is a bad fiscal manager, then so is every Republican governor in the country, except for John Hoeven of North Dakota. (Montana and Wyoming have Democratic governors; note that Alaska, the state with the largest oil reserves, is running a deficit under Mayor I-Forget-Her-Name.)

27. slingshot spews:

Actually the Republican flying monkeys vs Pelosi kerfuffle is nothing more than a classic counter-measure from the thugs.

In submarine battle, either combatant may, or will discharge dummy torpedos, air or other subterfuge to throw off the enemys sonar.

The same concept applies to the Star Wars rocket intercept theory; throw up a bunch of junk and the intercept missle is drawn from it’s intended target.

What the Repuplicans are doing with their attack on Pelosi is making it clear that if an investigation of the Bush Administration is undertaken, Pelosi will be among those on the docket. It may be a good chess move, as she’s apparently the one making the decision (or at least, has a huge say) on House investigations. So what the Thuglicans are saying is, ‘if you don’t support a special investigation of yourself, you’re a pussy”.

28. delbert spews:

Hey pet media – look Pelosi went to China!

Stop noticing she lied about the CIA. Please.

When the topic is bad, try your best to change the topic.

29. Roger Rabbit spews:

@28 What lie did she tell about the CIA? You’re lying when you say she lied. As for changing the topic, no, we’re going to keep talking about how the Republicans kidnapped, tortured, and killed innocent people for a long long time. Republican torture, like Nazi death camps and KKK lynchings, is one of those horrors that must never be forgotten because it proves there is no limit to human evil.

30. Wow spews:

To compare anything done in the last 8 years to the Nazi death camps show your infinite stupidity.

31. Roger Rabbit spews:

@30 Did I compare the GOP’s use of dogs, electric shocks, clubs, and guns to terrorize and kill detainees with the Nazis’ use of dogs, electric shocks, clubs, and guns to terrorize and kill detainees? Oh, silly me, they’re two different things, aren’t they?

Are you one of those lying wingnut vermin who still claims the only thing the Bush administration did to people was take nude photos of them and flush pages of the Koran down the toilet?

32. Roger Rabbit spews:

Roger Rabbit Quiz

Speaking of horrors that should not be forgotten because they prove there is no limit to human evil, the term “Waco Horror” commonly refers to:

[ ] 1. The FBI assault on the Branch Davidian compound.
[ ] 2. The lynching of Jesse Washington.
[ ] 3. The election of the city’s first black city councilman.

Here’s a clue to get you started: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5401868

33. me spews:

Roger – no matter what your beliefs are – “Pelosi lied” which is why she is in China now to try to reverse her problems. Don’t worry, the subject will pass in another week or two but will show up in her next election.

34. Roger Rabbit spews:

@33 Prove she lied.

35. Roger Rabbit spews:

As I understand it, Republicans are accusing Pelosi of lying when she said she didn’t know Republicans tortured people and lied about it.

36. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

@34: Prove she didn’t lie.

37. delbert spews:

“We were not – I repeat – we were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used.” – Nancy Pelosi, April 2009

LA Times – May 8, 2009
“A chart compiled by the CIA indicates that Pelosi (D-San Francisco) was briefed on Sept. 4, 2002, on the agency’s interrogation of alleged Al Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah, and that the session covered “the particular [enhanced interrogation techniques] that had been employed.”

When the LA Times is willing to admit she’s a liar…

38. Another TJ spews:

Porter Goss was at that meeting, and he hasn’t directly contradicted Pelosi. In fact, his version implicates the CIA in two crimes.

39. delbert spews:

So either Pelosi is too stupid to understand what she was told or she is lying.

Either way she should resign.

40. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

Delbert, the HA swineflu weasel class continues to forget the WAPO article from 12/07.

So Puddy continues to post it for the viewing pleasure.

41. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

Delbert, when the HA swineflu weasel class has to revert to their leftist pinhead web sites such as firedoglake you know the battle isn’t going their way.

42. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

Pelosi goes to China and the Ill one blast a nuclear test just up the road a piece.

So much for “the messiah’s” foreign initiatives.

43. YLB spews:

the HA swineflu weasel class

Weasel?

My word is my bond?

I am Puddybud, NOT?

Weasel. Yeah right….

44. YLB spews:

Gee what’s worse? Pelosi’s selective memory or…

the fact this country used torture?

We’re the United States – we don’t torture and we shouldn’t hide behind bullshit like “enhanced interrogation”.

Waterboarding and other abuse was used by the Japanese in WWII, the North Vietnamese, Soviet Union, Khmer Rouge, you name it… The wingnuts ignore this and call for Pelosi’s scalp..

What moronic fiends…

45. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

Moron@44, apparently your history lessons are pathetic. Go back to the early 1900s and see who used it fool!

And you are a clueless swineflu wonder weasel!

46. YLB spews:

45 – And we haven’t learned anything since then?

Moron. You’re an ugly torture supporter and it’s documented in these comment threads.

You disgust me.

47. Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

I pity the @46 fool!

48. Another TJ spews:

So either Pelosi is too stupid to understand what she was told or she is lying.

No. You should reread the link I posted.

And the article you cited didn’t suggest Pelosi lied. It said the CIA produced a “chart” that differed from her account. There’s a whole lot of distance to cover from that to an accusation of lying.

Is it possible the discrepancy came from an inaccurate CIA chart? Well, we know the CIA briefing memos were filled with errors, so it’s certainly possible.

In addition, we know the CIA has a history of lying, as Newt Gingrich accused the Agency of misleading the public in 2007 and Pete Hoekstra suggested the CIA was lying to Conress in 2008. And those two couldn’t be wrong. Could they?

49. YLB spews:

47 – Go ahead Stupes, say you’re against torture but support “enhanced interrogation” like the rest of your asswipe right wing friends.

I feel absolutely nothing but disgust for the lot of you.

50. correctnotright spews:

Poor DDelbert never learned how to read – that CIA chart has already had at least 5 documented errors in it – that the CIA has admitted to. It was compiled after the fact to cover the backsides of the CIA. When even republicans are saying they were not told what the CIA chart says they were told – and the dates are wrong – then the entire chart is invalid as “evidence”.

Oops – your evidence is just plain BS, as are your arguments supporting torture. You would have argued that the Nazi concentrations camps were “necessary” for the good of the nation.

Your lack of the ability to distiguish moral imperatives is particularly impressive.
