Default Nancy Pelosi is the most conservative candidate in her 2018 race

This article is a hilarious jawdropper...The arguement is that Nancy's ONLY a Socialist, and her new challengers are full blown Commies, so that makes Pelosi a "right-winger"...

Nancy Pelosi is the most conservative candidate in her 2018 race

Quote:
Nancy Pelosi is the most right-wing candidate in her reelection race this year.

The House Democratic leader faces not one, but three, Democratic challengers in 2018, as well as a Green Party candidate. And while national Republicans love to target Pelosi as the face of the far left in their campaigns, her opponents complain she’s actually not liberal enough for her San Francisco district, particularly on issues like health care and campaign finance.

There’s almost no chance Pelosi will lose her reelection. The 77-year-old Democrat has held her seat, which encompasses almost all of the city of San Francisco, since 1987, typically winning by margins of 70 and even 80 percentage points. But the critiques from her left-leaning opponents underscore an internal debate about the future of the Democratic Party in California – and nationally.

They also make plain that as much as the GOP tries to paint Pelosi as an extremist, she is very much a political pragmatist. It would hard to be such a power broker within the Democratic party establishment, if she wasn’t.
This like Karl Marx telling Stalin he's being too lenient...

I just sprayed my mouthful of water across the screen.

Jaw dropper, indeed.

"Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do, or where mowing the grass so people can’t be smuggled through the grass."

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi RE Trump's wall

Reality is not her strong suit.

I would expand that to Sanity not being her, nor those that continue to vote for her, strong suits.

My first thought at reading the headline was: "Is she running unopposed?"

Regardless, I've said it before and I'll say it again. If I were in Pelosi's district I would most likely vote for anybody but her...
