the Pelosi gambit
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 28, 2006
Amy Welborn has an excellent analysis of the scam that Nancy Pelosi is trying to pull, celebrating her arrival as Speaker of the House (in anticipation) with a big, splashy, and identifiably Catholic celebration at Trinity College in DC.
Will the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church let itself be played? Will it allow Nancy Pelosi to "celebrate" her Catholic roots as an act of obvious, frank political manipulation to get ethnic Catholics to start thinking Democrat again?
Sadly, when you put the question that way, the answer is obvious: Yes.
