Nancy Pelosi - 'most powerful Italian since Caesar'
SF Gate ^ | Jan 5, 2006 | Leah Garchik

Posted on 01/06/2007 7:32:14 PM PST by hfartalot

If Bill Clinton was Elvis, Hillary was the Statue of Liberty, inspired by Pelosi's triumph (more about that in a future story) and welcoming the huddled masses, who were pushing each other out of the way to take pictures with her. At night, we gathered at the National Building Museum for a celebration concert and Democratic Party fundraiser. Filmmaker Peter Kaufman, a friend of Christine Pelosi's, set the tone of the evening's festivities. He quoted someone else he'd heard that day: "She's the most powerful Italian since Caesar.''

Don't know about this. Gotti and Capone were pretty powerful.

That would mean she is right up there with Mussolini.

I seem to recall Il Duce!

His end wasn't too good though (and neither was his mistress's!)

So was Mussolini - and not in a good way. Sound familiar?

"Power" my butt!

She hasn't and won't "accomplish" anything.
How is this supposed "power" measured?
Shouldn't "results" be a component?

These clowns think "position" is a unit of measure for "power".

Too bad she and her supporters don't think of her as a powerful American.

Oh, well ...

We think alike but for those who remember Mussolini I was going to suggest Il Douche.

An unwittingly revealing quote. For the Rats, it's all about power for its own sake; the "issues" are merely tools with which to demagogue the ignorant masses.

Oh, I don't know. I'll bet there's a USSC judge of Italian ancestry who could slap her down in a NY minute, if the occasion called for it.

"She's the most powerful Italian since Caesar.''"

BARF


So, history has already concluded Our Lady of Plastic Surgery has attained more lasting achievements than Lorenzo De Medici?

Sounds like egregious revisionist history to me.

Whatever she will usher in will certainly be no modern day Renaissance.

What a bunch of horse crap!

Anyone hear of the founder of Bank of America?

What about Ioccoca, former Chairman of Chysler?
There have been lots of Italians in USA history who have made positive and important contributions.

Anyone hear of Alioto, former Mayor of SF, consiglorie to Al Davis, Oakland Raiders Owner?

Pelosi is the rind of the orange. Nothing more. I and many choose the pulp and not the skin.

We have a Broad who cannot control chairmen or legislation (there is the Senate) and she is considered powerful?

MSM stinks.

Yeah, sure, and I suspect that's exactly what they say about every semi-successful semi-Eyetalian in every country south of the border. Wasn't Evita Peron Eyetalian? The Age of Parochialism, the Age of Ignorance.

I'm pretty sure there have been just a couple of Italian Popes since then also that would qualify.

More like Madame Neroni.

Has anyone read Trollope's great parliamentary series of novels? The first two, Phineas Phinn and Phineas Redux? One of the characters who pursues our handsome hero is an Italian widow named Madame Neroni, with a little boy, whom she calls "the last of the Neros."

Nancy Pelosi is Madame Neroni.
