I can’t believe she gets re-elected. Doubling down on passing it to see what’s in it.

She’s in a safe Democrat district in San Francisco. That’s how she gets re-elected.

I read that only about 10-15% of House seats across the country are truly competitive between the two parties. Nancy is a poster girl for why this gerrymandering is a bad idea. Politicians who never face any serious election campaigns can stay in office indefinitely, regardless of their politics or intellectual honesty, or lack thereof.

I think whoever runs against her should just run continuous ads of her repeating

“But,we Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It”

And then just state “Well now we know and it is an American Tragedy”.

I love San Francisco and the Bay area. It’s a beautiful part of the country filled with great restaurants and lovely scenery. Unfortunately, it’s also full of braindead lefties like Pelosi. She’s just one of many clueless wonders walking around northern California.

If you have been to San Francisco in the last 10-15 years, you would understand why she is re-elected. Her constituents are as bizarro as she is.

I watched Pelosi for as long as I could stand it on Meet the Mess this morning. She is having age and linguistic issues. She had trouble presently a coherent thought without sounding and looking befuddled. She is definitely on the downhill slide of aging.

I thought Asians were natural republicans. Many Asian voters like gun control and the nanny state.

It’s a reflection of her constituency a/k/a San Franpsycho. The only way she’d lose if her voters find a candidate more liberal and whacko than she is.

I can’t believe she gets re-elected.

I believe that the California House Democrat Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus both still have a rule that they vote internally for party leader, then vote in blocks at the actual election for the candidate that won their caucus.

Pelosi has majority support from each, so she gets all of their votes. There are about 200 Democrats in the House, and those two delegations combine for about 78 seats (not counting members in both).

So Pelosi needs to win only 23 of other 122 Democrats, while any opponent needs to win 101 of the other 23 Democrats.
