    Re: Pelosi Poll

    I think she will still be a distraction the republicans continue to try and use.

    Huh? We don't have to use her, she is serving the cause of Rational Society (see Conservatism,) by simply going about her business. All we need do is raise relevant issues from time to time and then get out of her way.

    I suspect that it will eventually be the same for the President. After all, one cannot put someone with almost no qualifications whatever into such a position and not expect a farce, no?

    Re: Pelosi Poll

    How is she serving the cause, except by being a distraction on the torture issue?

    She is providing an object lesson, especially to the young, of what happens when the Nation chooses leaders based upon emotionalism, pop-culture, the mood of the moment, and imaginary issues such as AGW, and "torture" of murderous thugs.

    She is showing herself, and her ilk, to be little more than cardboard cutouts.

    Young people can be pretty sharp, and tend to get very analytical, even judgmental of their elders at a certain point. Mrs. Pelosi is providing them with a practical education in unethical political posturing.

    On top of that, I have some hope that her political implosion may help to make politics once again uninteresting to the uninformed strata of society.

    Finally, she is providing us with much needed comic relief!

    Re: Pelosi Poll

    Nothing will happen.The libs that vote for her will find a pathetic excuse to ether ignore or forgive her hypocrisy and by the time she runs for office again the issue will be forgotten or it will be considered old news.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That should be quite enough for some time yet, unless she goes underground and the rest of the let's turn into US into a tin pot country that prosecutes the previous leaders nut jobs shut the hell up.

    No one really thinks that will happen though, do they?

    I think you are seeing things through your preconceived notions. Your poll options alone portray you as a hyper-partisan(ie, the possible answers range from negative to insulting), and your answer to my question shows you are not thinking about this from a logical standpoint. So far the worst thing she has done in terms of the torture debate is give some answers of questionable veracity. Thing is, politicians get caught in lies all the time. I do not like it, but it's not like this is somehow going to topple her unless she does more than she has. All it does is give the republicans something to attack democrats on, which they would do any way.

    I don't think there are more than a handful who want to see any one from President Bush's administration prosecuted, and I am very confident they will not get much popular or political backing for any such prosecutions.

    I didn't find a description which fits.
    I think she'll be in a stronger position as speaker. I don't think she's perfect. But she's getting flak because she's a woman in what heretofore has been a man's position. Many men resent women in positions of authority and power. Simple.
