Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

DNC passes honorary resolution honoring Pelosi, after said resolution gets edited by…Pelosi

“You folks aren’t bragging enough on me.  Here, let me help you with that.”

The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor Nancy Pelosi Thursday — but its praise wasn’t good enough for the House minority leader.

When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.

“I have some friendly amendments,” said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee.

“You think I’m kidding,” Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.

If you’re getting the impression that the Dems didn’t get the memo from the November 2010 elections, you would be correct.  Just when you thought they couldn’t be more tone deaf after re-nominating the woman who lost control of Congress, they have flipped the bird to Normal America once again.

Jimmy Carter sends flowers to Helen Thomas, both reminisce on how their careers ended because of their anti-Semitism

Birds of an anti-Semitic feather flock together, no?  Details:

From the Falls Church News-Press, which is Helen Thomas’s new employer, comes an interesting bit of gossip. In an otherwise mundane column, the paper’s editor, Nicholas F. Benton, reports on the “handful” of Thomas’s friends and supporters who reached out to her during her controversy last summer — and apparently, one of these supporters, oddly enough, was former president Jimmy Carter:

[Rosie] O’Donnell sent Thomas, now age 90, flowers in sympathy for the highly upsetting incident and, along with President Jimmy Carter, was one of only a handful of her longtime colleagues and friends to reach out to her.

If true, this is certainly fitting. Both Thomas and Carter have been accused of anti-Semitism for their statements about Israel, although Carter hasn’t gone as far as to say that the Jews should “go back to Germany.” Could the former president have contacted Thomas to commiserate about his own experiences?

No word as to whether the two of them drank a toast to Arafat or anything.
