Unshocking breaking news of the day: Pelosi not stepping down as Democrat leader; Update: Whoops: Pelosi says ‘we still have the gavel,’ video added

Nancy Pelosi will remain House minority leader.

Not a surprise; she got her little pat on the head. And pitifully made a big hoopla about it, to boot.

The news was met with resounding yawns.


Twitchy will monitor and update with any other not-so-shocking developments.


Update: Whoops!

That’s right, she did.

And singing, allegedly.

Bless her heart!

The mocking was swift and awesome.

And the video tape!

Update: Double whoops! Fox News misrepresents her as a Republican.

    Pelosi has been dead for 8 years. It’s like a “Weekend at Bernie’s” situation, except instead of coming to life when music is being played, she comes to life when people talk about socialized healthcare and taxing the living hell out of people who have earned their wealth.

    Oh look, more meaningless and utterly unimportant words coming out of Pelosi’s mouth……………..what a surprise.

      How does she speak when none of her facial muscles can move?

    Has anyone tried dumping a bucket of water on her?

    ….worth a shot.

      Frozen solid and dropped from about 75 feet should do the trick…

      I say go for it.

      Might as well try it. We’ve been waiting six years for a tornado to drop a house on her, and no luck yet.

    Head, desk. Desk, head. Or have you two already met?

    She said it correctly during her press conference yesterday. There was a story posted here then with that video, right?

      Are you asking someone else to do your research, Purple Kool-Aide?
      Try using a computer, and not your 0bama phone.

      • Purple State

        I was being facetious. Of course Twitchy didn’t post a video of Pelosi that couldn’t be somehow perceived as embarrassing.

          Such a video would be much like the Holy Grail…nobody’s found it after long years of searching, and there’s widespread doubt that it even exists.

          Poe’s Law, hard to tell sometimes.

    That laugh is demented. Oh wow.

    What the hell is with the “wall of people” thing that the idiots keep using, standing behind their peeps?

    (At least the women behind Pelosi don’t look like that blond behind the president that looked like she was about to pee in her pants before jumping his bones during his first reelection press “opportunity,” i.e., campaign speech.)

  • JustLikeAnimals

    All who’ve actually met and spoken to Pelosi agree that she is such an astonishingly blithering idiot.

  • TocksNedlog

    She had to be re-elected in order to find out whether or not she had the gavel.

    Buy stock in Botox!

    Why do I feel like an extra in the movie Idiocracy?

    Re: Pelosi says ‘we still have the gavel’
    Pssst, Nance. If you bought it at Adam & Eve, it’s not a ‘gavel.’

    She and Biden suffer the same illness…

    I would REALLY like to see us as Americans view people as simply PEOPLE. Not black, not white, not female, not male, not gay, not straight… you get the picture. Anything else is devisive and irrelevant. If people would stop looking for reasons to cry discrimination, perhaps we could get some unity in this country. If I were a white male, I would feel attacked by Pelosi’s “powerful women and minorities” speech (and so many others like it). Enough! How about we start looking at people’s character and capabilities for a change?

    She is very creepy.

    Update: Pelosi opines, we have to pass the gavel before we know what to do with the gavel.

    Something tells me she plans on having herself stuffed.

    Love the picture at the top of this she looks absolutely insane new caption ‘ THIS IS WHAT CRAZY LOOKS LIKE”

    Pelooooser only has power because Boner has to deal with Marxists on both sides of the aisle. We have a one party state.
