She’s planning a four day extravaganza to celebrate her ascension to House Speaker.
On a scale associated with presidential inaugurations, Nancy Pelosi is planning four days of celebration surrounding her Jan. 4 swearing-in as the first female speaker of the House. She will return to the blue-collar Baltimore neighborhood where she grew up, attend Mass at the women’s college where she studied political science, and dine at the Italian Embassy as Tony Bennett sings “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”
Does anyone actually think that her becoming Speaker of the House is akin to winning the presidency? What hubris. When Newt Gingrich became Speaker of the House in 1994, he spent two days celebrating, which came in the form of speeches about the Contract with America on the floor of the House.
Added: I find it interesting that the liberal trolls think I’ve gone over the line by using the word hubris to describe
Queen Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi’s four day celebration of her. Now that I think about it, the word hubris doesn’t go far enough to describe what Nancy’s doing. We’ll be treated to four days of Nancy, Nancy, and more Nancy. Her childhood. Her college life. Her marriage and children. All this will culminate to her ascension to Speaker of the House as if she is the only one who matters in all of this. And video of her attending mass is just classic. Mass, as every Christian church service, is meant for the worship of God, our Creator and Lord, yet here she is making it about the worship of her.
Nope, hubris just doesn’t go far enough.
