Another edition of “What you are dealing with” when you encounter Leftists.
Today’s contestant is the newly re-elected Minority Leader and the 2nd most delusional person on the planet, Nancy Pelosi on the election just passed:
Well, we did have 25 seats in play and we’ve won 13 or 14 of them. We’ve won a majority of those seats. We lost seven freshmen and we lost three – [Tim] Bishop, [Nick] Rahall and [John] Barrow. Fabulous people who won in tough districts over and over again. But remember what I said then, it’s like the Olympics, it’s a little bit on one side, it’ll be a fraction of a second, fraction of an inch. That’s how it came down. Of that 25, I think it’s 14 of them that we have won. There’s one that it’s a loss for us, but it wasn’t an incumbent. It was Bruce Braley’s seat. So that’s another seat. But it wasn’t an incumbent, it was just that he didn’t win his own district. But in terms of people who are not coming back, it’s nine, no 10. It’s 10. It’s the three and then seven. Now, we’ll see what happens. They won 10, we won about 14 of them. . . . Of course, no one likes to see their colleagues leave and you don’t want to lose, but of those 25 races, we won 14 and lost 10. (WP)
Now isn’t that one of the greatest examples of Orwellian self-delusion (or just attempted manipulation of the truth) since “If you like your Health Plan…”
Orwell on The Ministry of Truth: Its purpose is to rewrite history and change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth go back and rewrite the prediction so that any prediction Big Brother previously made is accurate. This is the “how” of the Ministry of Truth’s existence. Within the novel Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.
So how you do approach that kind of bat-sh*t delusion “in a bi-partisan way”? 🙂
She pines for the good old days 8 years ago when The Democrats won both houses of Congress and made her the 3rd most powerful person in America. Ah, the good ol’ days!
And if they just stay the course and stay strong and project confidenmce they can have it all back in 2016! 🙂
“I’m the one that brought everyone to the party by winning the House in the first place,” (WP) Pelosi said in an interview.
Acknowledging that reality is critically important for congressional Democrats. And they are trillion miles and counting from that.
So how are going to be “bi-partisan” with this lot? 🙂
