'Go Nancy'? CNN's Kathleen Parker Admires Pelosi, the Democrats' 'Mama Grizzly'
NewsBusters ^ | December 10, 2010 | Matthew Balan

Kathleen Parker, CNN's resident pseudo-conservative, gushed over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday's Parker-Spitzer, trumpeting how the San Francisco liberal stood amongst her fellow Democrats: "She's the 'mama grizzly' in this crowd, is she not?" Parker also stated she had "great admiration" for Pelosi, and even cheered her on: "Go, Nancy!" [audio available here]

The host, along with her on-air partner Eliot Spitzer, shared yet another moment of mutual agreement during the lead segment of their program, ripping President Obama for his proposed tax compromise with congressional Republicans. Spitzer wasted little time in launching his attack on the executive: "He is like a school kid who's been sent home again to redo his homework because it was that bad the first time around. And you know what? They're right. He embraced George Bush's economic policies, and the Democrats in the House are saying, start over."

Parker agreed with him to a point, but tried to emphasize a possible long term benefit for Obama:

PARKER: I have to say that just objectively looking at this, it looks terrible for the President in the moment....But I have to say, in the long run, it could actually help him, because the truth is, the President has to get elected in 2012- reelected, that is- and he's got to get the moderates and the centrists and the independents back. So, he may end up looking good in the longer run, but for right now, it seems like he's is in a terrible bind.

The former Democratic governor continued his fire at the President, which ultimately drew out his co-host's superlative for Pelosi:

SPITZER: No. He looks weak. You can't come back from looking weak, in my view. He has no strength. He stands for nothing. He has forsaken ideology for cutting any deal in sight. He did it initially with the Republicans on the stimulus. He did it on health care. He did with Wall Street. He does it with anybody who walks in with a deal. He doesn't know how to negotiate. He doesn't know how to walk away. He doesn't know how to say- no, here's a line in the sand, and I think that the House Democrats are finally standing up and saying, we stand for something and that's important.

PARKER: You know who does know how to draw a line in the sand? I just want to say this-

SPITZER: Yeah?

PARKER: With great admiration- nonpartisan.

SPITZER: Yeah.

PARKER: Nancy Pelosi.

SPITZER: That's right.

PARKER: You know, Nancy Pelosi is just- she is- she's the 'mama grizzly' in this crowd, is she not?

SPITZER: Well, she-

PARKER: No, she's backing the caucus, rather than the President. She's clearly made a choice-

SPITZER: Right. That is her job, and so, I'm not surprised at some level she did that. But I think you're exactly right. When it came to health care, she is the one who puts some backbone in the White House that was wavering about what to do. She is the one who has marshaled the Democrats in the House of Representatives throughout this process, and even at the moment of a lame duck Congress, she is saying, we believe in something- we're going to act on it.

PARKER: Go, Nancy!

Only thing left for Parker is to come out of the closet and start a lesbian affair with oprah.

NO Conservative admires Pelosi for a DAMN thing.

In fact, no RINO, Independent, or Centrists would either.

The hard core Left, now that segment LOVES Nancy Pelosi.

So lets be real, Parker is a Left Wing Loser like everyone else is on CNN.

Just because she isn’t a card-carrying member of the Communist party like the remainder of that network is, only makes her “appear” as though she represents the Right but only when compared to Extremist Left Wing Zealots.

I disagree with Parker, I had Pelosi pegged as more of a hyena than a grizzly.

She's their polecat/wolverine - a very nasty animal. Wolverines are the largest of the land-dwelling weasels...

This is how we'd like to see her

The Socialists have no humor and NO imagination. We have the Tea Party - with historical reference.

So they start the "coffee Party" - and their first big conference in NYC, with the MSlimeMedia in attendances had a 'crowd' of 3 - yes, three people.

Now they borrow Sarah's "Mama Grizzly."

Ah, Sarah has hunted Grizzlies - She had the huge Grizzly bear rug, head and all, that her father had shot, in her Governor's office.

What connection has San Fran Nan got to any of that?

Truly pathetic people.

They are, indeed, parasites - that live off others and, if not stopped, suck the life out...stealing the life force of others - because they have no life force - they are dead beings.

I consider Paluzie a mentally deranged, self absorbed hag
from SanFransicko.
She envisions herself as the Queen Mother of the USSA.

Paluzie and Obambie have a lot in common.

Fur Shur you can't go around for a couple of decades looking like a zombie and not disturb lots of people.

It will be good to have the Pelosi woman out of the Well of the House.

Pelosi is not a “Mama Grizzly”.

She is, rather a “Cowering Hyena” - skulks around with its mates, stealing from others, and turning on the weakest it can find including its own!
