‘Here lies….’

Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi has made herself obsolete.

She aligned herself with four self-proclaimed “progressive” Congresswomen termed “The Squad,” even posing on the cover of  Rolling Stone magazine (“Women Shaping the Future Nancy Pelosi and the New Voices of the House”). Fast forward, nearly four years and The Squad no longer needs Pelosi. AOC has nearly 14 million Twitter followers. No future sisterhood photoshoots have been announced.

Pelosi was the first female Speaker of the House but like many things in Woke World, it’s complicated. Woke science has declared that there are many genders so being the first genetic women to hold the office has been devalued.  Several Democratic controlled legislatures have reacted to the Woke language attacks by combing though their statutes, laws and regulations to excise male/female references. Commonly used terms such as “breast feeding” and “female giving birth” have been re-worked into “chest feeder” and “birthing person”.

Pelosi touts herself as an abortion warrior. Yawn. Abortion is legal in the vast majority of the states.

Whitemalepriveleged Pelosi Congressional cronies are especially at risk. They are the equivalent of political space junk.

Pelosi is trying to hang on but as Harry Truman reportedly observed “If you want a friend in politics, get a dog.”
