Theres something about a woman who tells it like it is that really rankles the powers-that-be, especially in the political world. A man can be as biased and ill-informed as hed like, but let a female politician say the quote-unquote wrong thing, and she gets branded with that five-letter word that rhymes with itch. Despite their brains, experience, and the meaning of their messages, Hillary becomes Shrillary, Condi Rice gets branded as Bushs lapdog, and Michelle Obama is likened to reality show nightmare Omarosa. Now, Nancy Pelosi is being labeled a failure in an Im rubber youre glue attempt by pundits on the right. This because the current speaker of the house said what many others in this country have thought that Prez Dubya has been a total failure on just about every issue hes touched. Whether or not you agree with Pelosis opinion of Bush as a modern anti-Midas, you gotta admit that she got where she is for a reason. Nancy Pelosi is accomplished, eloquent, intelligent, and unafraid to share her point of view. And today you can shake her hand and ask her whatever question youve got. Thats right, the highest ranking elected woman in American history will be at Temple Judea, at 7:30 p.m.
Pelosis in town to promote her book, Know Your Power: A Message to Americas Daughters.
