We’ve already covered in some detail how Nancy Pelosi can be a bit over-the-top, but this latest report takes the cake. Proving that those on the left are just as capable as those on the right of saying the darndest things, Nancy Pelosi has a story she likes to tell about the ghosts of women suffragists past visiting her at the White House.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently told a gathering of the Women’s Political Committee that the ghosts of women’s suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul once spoke to her at the White House, reports CNSNews. Apparently, Pelosi directly fulfills everything that the various women’s movements stood for because, upon meeting the former House Speaker, they said: “ ‘At last we have a seat at the table,’ says Pelosi.”
In a YouTube video of the speech, Pelosi describes the encounter in more detail:
“He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going on–which is correct. But, as he was saying this, he was fading and this other thing was happening to me.”
“My chair was getting crowded in,” Pelosi continued. “I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since.”
“My chair was getting crowded in and I couldn’t figure out what it was, it was like this,” she said.”
“And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were,” said Pelosi. “More than I named and I could hear them say: ‘At last we have a seat at the table.’ And then they were gone.”
I know you want video, so here it is. I give you “Nancy Pelosi sees dead people.” Before we get to barbed commentary, do you believe Pelosi’s story about speaking with the ghosts of women suffragists?
COMMENTARY: Maybe they actually said, “At least we have a seat at the table.” I don’t really have any problems believing in ghosts. I do have a problem believing stories that conveniently stroke the teller’s ego.
