Clarification: Nancy Pelosi Has No Backbone, and I Have NOT Been Threatened by the Congressional Black Caucus
A couple of days ago I mocked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for joining Repuglican Dennis Hastert in condemning the FBI raid on William Jefferson's office, saying Pelosi was probably doing it because she had been threatened by black people in Congress:
It reeks of someone having gotten to Pelosi and threatened her. First suspect, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), an institution that doesn't have a lot of respect in the Democratic circles [in which] I hang. In fact, the word "corrupt" gets thrown around a lot. Did the CBC put pressure on Pelosi to denounce the raid as pennance for asking Jefferson to step down? Sounds likely.Then late last night (after most of you were sleeping) I made a quick and hurried post called "I really hate it when Newt Gingrich is right," in which, yes, I also landed on Dennis Hastert's side of the argument:
A lot of people are asking me: "Johnny A-List, you're now saying what Nancy Pelosi was saying two full days ago. This looks somewhat suspicious. Have you also been threatened by the Congressional Black Caucus?"
...my friend Paul once told me "even a broken clock is right twice a day" (or maybe I told him). This is Gingrich's take on where things staff [sic] after Bush's Justice Dept. raided the Congress:
The House is now faced with a reality of power," says former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich..."Either they do things that involve appropriations or oversight that are real, or they earn the contempt with which they are being treated."
I cannot BELIEVE you all would ask such a question. YES, I do spread rumors that the Congressional Black Caucus is "corrupt as hell," but NO, they have not threatened me! Ha! Let me explain...
When someone like a Nancy Pelosi takes a stance on an issue, it is clearly because she has no backbone and is caving to threats from corrupt groups (the obvious "first suspect" being the Congressional Black Caucus.) When Johnny A-List takes a stance--even if it is the same stance--I do not do so in a cowardly or girly manner; it is a manly stance with plenty of backbone.
