Hrrrmmmmmm…. This is kind of interesting. Somebody wearing a latex Nancy Pelosi body suit — or possibly Nancy Pelosi herself just in her normal skin, though that seems unlikely — was caught by the press talking about the debt ceiling crisis and showing something that appeared to be… a spine?
Look, I'm as confused as you. But here's what the unidentified person (possibly Pelosi) supposedly said…
"This isn't just about [GOP legislators] saying we should reduce the deficit," she said, adding: "This is an excuse. The budget deficit is an excuse for the Republicans to undermine government plain and simple. They don't just want to make cuts, they want to destroy. They want to destroy food safety, clean air, clean water, the department of education. They want to destroy your rights."…
"They do not like the government," Pelosi said. "They're riding an engine of popular support for, ok we have to reduce the deficit. And they're using that to destroy."
"The Speaker has said that between him and the president they have a different vision of America and that's how come their budget proposals are different," she sad. "Quite different…We get the sacrifice, they get the wealth."
Oh man! The President is gonna be pissed when he finds out that someone posing as a Democratic leader (or possibly an actual Democratic leader) was out there saying words about Republicans that were not bedazzled with rainbows and unicorns. Don't these people know that such behavior runs completely contrary to Obama's strategy of aggressive capitulation?
Someone's gonna be in a lot of trouble when this shit hits the fan. (Assuming there is any electricity to run the fan.)
