Rep. Nancy “Stretch” Pelosi (D-Cal.), who nearly three years ago mocked Tea Partiers as she and a host of Congressional Democrats marched to Capitol Hill to give their final approval to Obamacare, again demonstrated her lack of upbringing and class when speaking of Sen. Jim DeMint’s (R-S.C.) decision to resign from the U.S. Senate and assume the presidency of the Heritage Foundation. The Hill reports:
Pelosi criticized the resigning South Carolina lawmaker and other GOP senators for voting Tuesday against Senate ratification of a United Nations treaty on rights for the disabled.
“For them [DeMint and other treaty opponents] to slap the face of our veterans, of people with disabilities, of families with children with disabilities, that was one of the saddest days,” Pelosi said in the Capitol, taking care to avoid DeMint’s name. “So anyone who was a party to that, well, I wish them well wherever they are going, and hope that we can have more of our values represented [by his replacement].”
Such as your San Francisco values, Nancy?
Once again, Rep. Pelosi proves that ugliness, unlike beauty, is more than skin-deep.
