House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the savior of the nation, is on fire this evening on the All In with Chris Hayes program on MSNBC.
I met her in 1986. In that 34 years, I have never once heard her more lucid and penetrating in her communication than this evening.
There is something so very beautiful about women shedding the shackles and limitations placed on too many of them early in life, and coming into their own as true forces of nature later in life, as did Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
It seems clear that Nancy Pelosi is fueled by righteous indignation at the criminal negligence of the Trump Administration that has led to 200,930 deaths to date.
Both she and Joe Biden are refusing take the bait of the Dark Eminence’s latest distraction: endless rambling on about his pending Supreme Court nomination.
Pelosi said, “The three issues in this election are healthcare, healthcare, and healthcare.“
But she didn’t stop there. She connected Trump’s response, or non-response, to COVID-19, to the ongoing corruption and dismantling of government in his broader administration. In other words, Pelosi made the connection between giving an ideology of total contempt for all government and all institutions the reins of power, and the massive death that we see all around us.
Imagine where this country would be if we had not taken back the most democratic branch of American government, the House of Representatives, in 2018. It was Pelosi herself, who masterminded candidate recruitment with her leadership team, who shepherded that campaign to the most massive victory in modern history.
If this nation is, in fact, to be saved at all, Nancy Pelosi will eventually be forever remembered as the savior of the American nation.
