Skip to comments.Dem: House GOP is "80 percent male, 100 percent white"

The National Republican Congressional Committee is urging Gen. Stanley McCrystal to put House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "in her place" for weighing in on Afghanistan -- prompting one female Pelosi ally to blast the House GOP as "80 percent male," "100 percent white" -- and completely out of touch.
On Monday night, Pelosi told Charlie Rose "should go up the line of command" instead of publicly opining on strategy -- prompting a swift, sneering reaction from the GOP committee.
Mocking the first female speaker as "General Pelosi," an NRCC spokesman wrote, "If Nancy Pelosis failed economic policies are any indicator of the effect she may have on Afghanistan, taxpayers can only hope McCrystal is able to put her in her place."
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who is close to Pelosi, could barely contain her anger.
"I think the place for a woman is at the top of the House of Representatives," said Wasserman Schultz.
"It's evidence they long for the days when a woman's place was in the kitchen. Now a woman is third in line for the presidency... But it's not surprising, coming from a party that's 80 percent male and 100 percent white," she added, referring to the composition of the House GOP conference.
NRCC Spokesman Ken Spain was unrepentant, telling POLITICO that Pelosi is "playing out of her league," and questioned the reluctance of Democrats to call for McCrystal to testify in a hearing on the war.
Spain: "Spare us the lectures and mock-outrage. The Speaker of the House is taking on a highly decorated general who has outlined a strategy in Afghanistan that she once claimed to advocate... [S]hes playing out of her league and she knows it.
What is the makeup of the black caucus?
Gee that sounds a little racist.And sexist.
100% of former KKKlansmen is democrat
Haven’t they attacked any Republican of color that runs with really nasty names? I really dislike that mouthy one from Florida, she is a real female dog IYKWIM!
I believe the purpose of this dispute is find ways to force nancy peelousi back into the limelight. Any day that nancy’s picture makes newspapers and TV is a win for republicans. Getting nancy involved in approving Generals is a special sort of narrative that promises all sorts of benefits to her opposition. Lets hope this special flower blooms large.
The Democratic party = 100 percent full of dumb asses
It's 100% Communist Traitor.
The Dem House is 80% Communist, and 100% traitorous bastard.
Errrr... Deb, honey... seems you wanted Sarah Palin back in the kitchen!
"[Palin] she doesn't know anything and isn't ready to be vice president."
Which makes the DNC Racist. The only lynchings in this Country are Blacks running as Conservatives.
Pray for America and Our Troops
Spain: “Spare us the lectures and mock-outrage. The Speaker of the House is taking on a highly decorated general who has outlined a strategy in Afghanistan that she once claimed to advocate... [S]hes playing out of her league and she knows it.
Hmmm.... I like that. I like that a lot!
Just like Obama -- almost 100% .
Response: Ok. wonder if after 2010 the ratio is 100% and 100% of the entire house?
Our government functioned a lot better when it was 80% male and 100% white.
If only the US followed the same pattern! The Constitution would still be in effect, the streets would be safe and there would not be enough dizzy female voters to put a Hussein in the White House!
What is the racial makeup of ACORN? At least those without a criminal record.
MALE AND FEMALE!
