Pretty soon, stories like this one will cease to exist, they will disappear into irrelevance just like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will disappear into the same.
Pelosi gave her last testimony as Speaker this week and even unveiled a portrait of herself with a gavel in her hand that will hang in the Speaker’s lobby.
You would think with all these tributes that she was either dead or at least leaving Washington, but she will still be on Congress for a least a few more years. Doing it this way, she gets the kick of honoring herself.
One reporter got how odd this whole ordeal was and asked Speaker Pelosi if now that she was out of leadership, would she be sticking around.
The reporter asked, “Will you commit to serving your full two-year term for the people of San Francisco?”
That seems like a fair question to ask after you’ve just given your own eulogy. But Pelosi didn’t think so and she showed how the question hit a nerve.
“What is this? Don’t bother me with a question like that. Really. Really, OK? I said what I’m going to do. Those kind of questions are such a waste of my time,” Pelosi barked.
This is a seasoned public servant responding to a reporter this way. It harkens back just a few days to the president dropping the ‘F-bomb’ because reporters keep asking about his age. The president is 80…
I guess you start to feel pretty good about yourself when you have just pulled a cord and a massive picture of you is revealed. Pretty heady stuff.
Maybe this is a sign of what the new Pelosi is going to be like. She doesn’t have to pretend to be polite anymore. If that’s true, the fireworks have only just begun.
