By that logic I'm a Washington insider.
 
2008-08-25 07:03:43 PM  
The former president's son wasn't one either.
 
2008-08-25 07:08:46 PM  
Has anyone ever answered yes to the question of whether or not they were an insider?
 
2008-08-25 07:12:32 PM  
Wouldn't someone who knows the inner workings be valued?

her father was a three term mayor of baltimore and her brother was a one term mayor. being mayor of baltimore is about as washington insider as being apprentice bongo player for Princess Cruises.

the congress stuff, think of it what you will.

Here comes the Pelosi hate.
 
2008-08-25 07:17:06 PM  
If she was a Washington insider should would of been IMPEACHING BUSH AND CHENEY by now!!!!!

wimp is more like it.
 
2008-08-25 07:17:08 PM  
Ok, I'd like somebody to at last explained to me, in absolute terms, what is a Washington insider, and what's supposed to be so bad about them.

Because so far, it seems that people are either "Washington Insiders", or "To inexperience to govern".
 
2008-08-25 07:17:10 PM  
Did they ask her if she's gone under the knife too?
 
2008-08-25 07:18:04 PM  
"Are you a Washington insider?"

The political equivalent of...

"Have you stopped beating your wife yet?"
 
2008-08-25 07:18:04 PM  
I dunno guys, we are talking about Pelosi, and she doesn't really strike me as the one of the cool kids, allowed into the tree house.

The title is "second bongo", thank you.
 
2008-08-25 07:20:31 PM  
Hey back off people. She's from the streets.
 
2008-08-25 07:22:19 PM  
Yes, the oligarchy is bi-partisan, subby.

Did you have a point to make?

notmtwain: Has anyone ever answered yes to the question of whether or not they were an insider?

You call it experience, and tell people how unqualified your opponent is. Then you mention your POW status.
 
2008-08-25 07:24:32 PM  
I thought she was a hippie with San Francisco values.
 
2008-08-25 07:26:21 PM  
Careful..the more critical of her the greater chance she'll just break down and cry to distract everyone...

This.

Since when is any connection to politics automatic proof you are a "washington insider"?
 
2008-08-25 07:27:07 PM  
Ohhh, i finaly get to use a appropriate quote... i believe it was margaret thatcher who quippped "being powerful is a lot like being a lady, if you have to tell people you are, you aren't"

so well played, madam speaker...

Meh, Pelosi lost any good will I had towards her when she had herself sworn in with the Brat on her lap. That was just too much obnoxious marketing for me to take and demonstrated how shallow the Congressional Dems truly were. So I'm not surprised she answered the question the way she did, I'm surprised the question was even asked. She's been there 22 years, yea she's a darn insider, big whoop. The fact that she claims Obama is a Gift From God, is just another example of Pelosi trying to market her party; I don't believe she's the smartest tool in the shed, but meh, she can't be stoopid either, nobody makes it that far by being stoopid. (Even GW)

/+1 for the Maggie Quote, would vote for a Woman like that any day for Prez. (Had more balls than 90% of the men in Congress and Senate imho)
 
2008-08-25 07:37:40 PM  
You don't want the Pelosi hate I and many others could spew. If there is anybody that is the coming of the Antichrist...well at least Obama didn't pick her.

I don't tend to get involved with politics at all, but if you inject her into the equation, I'm all over it like white on rice. Like Don King on a sucker boxer. Like Oprah on a cheese danish.

In case you can't tell, she makes me angry. Very, very angry.
 
2008-08-25 07:38:17 PM  
Of course she said no. Everyone says no to that loaded question. Anyone surprised by this needs to wake the fark up.
 
2008-08-25 07:53:12 PM  
Well, Washington outsider John McCain, who was a POW, will definitely change things. Especially if he picks outside-the-beltway Mitt Romney (son of a governor and solidly blue-collar everyday guy) as his VP.

cxjohn: In case you can't tell, she makes me angry. Very, very angry.

get a life.

Like cxjohn on a comic reference that was outdated 15 years ago.

Denial. Not just a river in Egypt anymore.

Where's that common sense plan to lower gas prices, Nancy? I'm still anxiously awaiting it.
 
2008-08-25 08:04:51 PM  
22 years in Congress and Speaker of the House. If she doesn't qualify then nobody does.
 
2008-08-25 08:07:32 PM  
But, be assured...John McCain really knows how tough it is to make ends meet...

This. Who cares is she is a Washington insider, outsider, upsider, downsider, left sider, rightsider, or plain old apple sider. The question is: WTF is she doing? Answer: Sweet Jesus nothing. That's what matters.

He spent 5 1/2 years without ends to ... make meet, so... POW

More like a comic reference that is worth more than anything you or she can put forward. She's nothing but a backstabbing traitor to this country. I suspect you support her. You're the scary future our parents warned us about. Those that betray and tear this country down without regard for anything moral or just.

If you think you're being funny, forget it. Flip maybe, but that's just a sign of weakness and lack of preparation. You're not ready for the fight that's coming.

I honestly can't tell the trolls from the actual conservatives anymore, it's scary.

Anyone in D.C. who's gotten themselves reelected.

and what's supposed to be so bad about them.

They may be more concerned with getting reelected than serving their constituents and the country.

This is what most normal Americans think about the Democrats. Its a shame, but we don't really have a two party system in this country unless the prty out of power can at least support the President when there's a war on. We need more democrats like Joe Liebreman and Zel Miller and fewer like Barack Hussein Obama and Nancy Peloser.

I wish someone would ask the followup question of one of these people: "If you aren't a Washington insider, can you name someone in your party who is?" I bet that would be entertaining.

Whatever you say, Mr. Congressman.
 
2008-08-25 11:08:48 PM  
Well of course she is, but of course she's going to say she isn't!

It would pretty much be political suicide to admit it.
 
2008-08-26 01:30:33 AM  
Oh well no one is an insider.

I haven't been able to tell for years now. They moved into a post-satire ideology; where nothing was so twisted, absurd, or self-contradicting that they wouldn't do it.
