And to think she was two heartbeats from the presidency not too long ago.
I really wonder about this woman’s mental health
Paul Kengor just posted a piece about Pelosi’s approval of the folks killing small business on Wall Street. That remark was a head scratcher, but I thought it was fairly typical of Pelosi.
But today she dropped a whopper.
Politics is the art of the possible. It... More
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is a lifelong Roman Catholic who has been a huge disappointment to her Church on matters of unborn human life. That, of course, is well-established, from her relentless advocacy of “abortion rights” to even urging taxpayer funding of contraceptives as part of President Obama’s “stimulus” plan. I’ve personally written about those disappointments... More
A group of liberal Catholic academics, led by professors at Catholic University, have written a public letter to Catholic Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) calling for protection of social-welfare programs that they argue are mortally threatened by the current budget proposal. The lead signatory, Professor Stephen Schneck, invokes the Gospel mandate to help the poor—to ensure that “the ... More
And in other House of Representatives religion news: Nancy Pelosi appears poised to do a Jesuit wrong.
(P.S. for Thomas Peters — found a collar photo!)
If the government shuts down on Saturday, military men and women will have to serve while not getting a paycheck. Families planning on spending spring break at one of our national parks will have their vacations ruined. It’s also possible that many government websites would be offline during a shutdown.

I really thought Pelosi had reached the point where she could no longer surprise me, but I was wrong. Pelosi’s complaint that defending DOMA will cost too much surprises me.... More
I like Pelosi for this reason: she makes the fight we are in absolutely unambiguous.
In a strategy call with pro-abort bloggers yesterday, she rallied her troops to oppose pro-life bills that have been introduced in the House of Representatives:
Pelosi acknowledged that Dems could not stop Republicans from passing their anti-abortion agenda through the House. But she said it was crucial that p... More
Soon-to-be ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to run through all the superlatives in the dictionary before tomorrow’s national rebuke of her agenda, including this gem:
“Nothing less is at stake than civilization as we know it today.”
If that’s how she chooses to describe the end of one of the most reckless Congresses in history – particularly by the sta... More
Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, reminds us where the contraceptive mentality coupled with the nanny state gets you … equations like “less people = less government expense.” Actually, Richards thinks this argument will convince doubters:
I think it’s important … to understand that unlike some other issues of cost, birth control is one of those issues... More
Catholyc Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, whose days in Congress are numbered, in an interview with Politics Daily published today (emphasis mine):
[Pelosi's] own pro-choice votes have caused her some agita as a Catholic who attends daily Mass, and whose staff has to locate a church for her wherever she travels. Given her clashes with the hierarchy of her church, has there ever been a moment w... More
