The Problem with Pelosi

William F. Buckley takes a look at Nancy Pelosi and pinpoints why it is I find her so dislikable. She is part of the problem in modern politics. In fact, she is one of the main instigators of needless divisiveness.

She is a Democratic version of the deplorable attack-dog Republicans – only she isn’t as disciplined or shrewd. But make no mistake, she tries to run the Democrats with the same level of nastiness employed by Karl Rove and his surrogates. Her likely ascension to Speaker will do nothing to raise the level of discourse in this country.

Voting Democratic in these elections is not a vote for honest debate or greater civility. Vote for the Dems for policy reasons. Vote for the Dems as a no-confidence vote against the Republicans. But don’t vote for the Dems because they’ll do anything to heal the rifts in this country. They won’t as long as Nancy Pelosi is in charge.
