The people at Roll Call have assembled a “Best of…” video to show just how entertaining and bizarre former Speaker Nancy Pelosi was during her press briefings on Capitol Hill.
Some of her brilliant observations on the highlighted reel, of course, taken out of context:
‘I don’t support it, but it’s not, you know – in other words, there is an emergency. There is a burning building. We have to put out the fire. I’m not having to have a conversation about the color of the buckets that the water is in.’
‘I don’t know if these people were all sprung from the head of Zeus, or maybe they’re all Native Americans, bless their hearts.’
‘What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh’s family? We wouldn’t have the Ten Commandments for starters.’
‘I think that is some kind of an acronym, but I get these acronyms all mixed up. But it starts with Bank on Students – B.O.S.E.L.R.– Does that mean anything? No?’
Hard to imagine Nancy Pelosi is revered by so many.
