Nancy Pelosi: Dumber Than a Box of Rocks
San Francisco Examiner ^ | May 21, 2009 | Staff

Posted on 08/06/2009 11:19:55 AM PDT by Wardenclyffe

A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi happened to appear. Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.

'Would you mind telling me, Doctor,' she asked, 'how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?'

'Nothing is easier,' he replied. 'You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track.'

'What sort of question?' asked Pelosi.

Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?''

Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, 'You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history.'

LMAO! Please tell me this isn’t satire. It’s just too rich to be true!

The box of rocks has the unfair advantage of being interesting.

Someone I know, who dislikes her, reported that when she was recently in China that she did a good job in the negotiations they were involved in with the Chinese government.

I think she’s horrible but she isn’t dumb.

Well, that's an unfair question because most dims remain politically active even after death. Even Wellstone’s funeral was still a political event, so Nancy just assumed somebody may have carted Cook's lifeless body in the other trips.

If you really think Nancy Pelosi is dumb, please explain how she was able to sweep TARP, Stimulus and Cap and Trade through the house so easily? Anyone who assumes she is dumb, is at an incredible disadvantage when it comes to dealing with her...I will never underestimate the enemy again!

Anyone who thinks the U.S. is losing 500 million jobs a month is not too bright. Read some of her statements and you’ll see a pattern. As to how “she” was able to cram through all these bills: She takes good direction. IMHO.

I agree not to underestimate the enemy but I think she quite likes to strong arm - part of the power!

Seriously? she has a big advantage in numbers to begin with, plus those bills were all LADEN with pork for the people voting for them. At least HALF of the stimulus bill was pork for the guys who voted for it. Not hard to get a vote with that little incentive.

Don’t know. But remember when the heat got turned up on her over her calling the CIA liars and suddenly she was photographed in Shanghi or something? It was then.

I have to imagine it had something to do with trade.

We have to be aware that Snopes does tend to err on the side of giving entries about Democrats the benefit of the doubt. If they’re not overwhelming proven to be true, they’re determined to be questionable or in doubt.

Nancy and her ilk are CRIMINALS.

They are ‘dumb’ concerning things which are just and right and virtuous.
But they are very clever with things that involve corruption, graft and greed.

Hassert, Lott and Frist gave away plenty of pork as well and when it really mattered got nothing in return because of the minority Democrats and RINO's who couldn't be controlled by the three leaders or President Bush. Up until now, Nancy has kept the blue dogs and Harry Reid on a very tight leash.

I would have to assume that you have never seen a woman put on an act to get what she wants...Nancy deserves an Oscar for the part she has been playing.

You're saying that she's putting on a "stupid act?" She's "acting" stupid? Why? To what end? I'm sorry, but I don't understand that logic. It seems that you're convinced she's smarter than the facts show.

If you watch/listen to her press conference about the CIA "lying" to her, she gets tripped up by a reporter's question and has to refer to her notes. She reads her notes out of sequence and has to strain to come up with a coherent response.

Getting elected as an ultra liberal from San Francisco doesn't require an above average intelligence. It requires moonbattery and rote memorization of talking points.
