Have I lost my mind?
Not really. While some people have accused me of being a few fries shy of a Happy Meal, I am completely serious. I want Nancy Pelosi to be the Minority Leader.
Fresh off of her spectacular success in taking the Democrats from a significant majority to being significantly in the minority. Under Nancy Pelosi, Congress has become one of the most despised organizations in the Country. Americans trust ambulance-chasing lawyers and used car salesmen more than they trust congress right now. Give Pelosi another month or two, Nigerian Internet scammers will be held in higher esteem that the members of the Congress of the United States.
I received a call today from a friend who asked me about the Tea Party supporting Heath Schular for minority leader. After checking Schular out with my friends in the North Carolina Tea Party groups, I realized what a bad idea that would be, on several fronts.
Besides, there is the outside chance, Schular could be competent. We know Pelosi and we know she is not.
I am not complaining about Nancy Pelosi leading the minority. As I like to tell people, ‘never complain about incompetent opposition. They could get better.’
