Pelosi, House women peddle lady parts at presser; Boo Russert, cry sexism!/ARStrasser/status/268733269267320833

Sigh. The peddling of lady parts continues.

As Twitchy reported, Nancy Pelosi held a press conference today to deliver the oh-so-shocking news that she’s not stepping down as House minority leader. On the plus side, she committed a hilarious and epic flub: She said that Democrats “still have the gavel.” Whoops!

But, wait, there was more hilarity to be had at the press conference. Evidently, all that was missing in the lady parts peddle-fest was some Code Pink style vagina costumes.

Flanked by dozens of women members & congresswomen-elect, Nancy Pelosi announces she’s staying as Minority Leader.…

Pelosi: “The thought of four men at that table was not an appealing site…”

Men have cooties; can’t even bear the sight of them! But what about their Man-God Obama? The Patriarchy ™ is totally fine, natch, so long as he pats you on the head and pays (or makes someone else pay) for your birth control. Poor, helpless dears!

I have never seen @nancypelosi play up the pro woman theme as she is doing now. Even joking about the scary sight of all men at the table

When you lose CNN’s Dana Bash …

Pelosi say she’s staying “in order to continue work empowering women”

I’m pro-women/Democrat/older people but that #Pelosi presser was a shitshow. Go find the Gingrich v. Bob Michel playbook. #permanentminority

@slone “We don’t have the gavel. But we have something more important… unity.”For a second I feared she might say “vaginas”! #Pelosi

Seriously, Nancy Pelosi is out of touch. Her interpretation of women empowerment is convoluted & sad. Don’t ever pretend to speak for me.

The “future” of US women as represented by Pelosi & her new gal pals feels an awful lot like a huge step backwards.

— Kindy (@CallInSick318) November 14, 2012

Then the ladies started booing a male reporter. Luke Russert dared to ask a pertinent question, rather than worshipping at the altar of lady parts. Thus, he’s sexist. And agist. And whatever other “ist” they can come up with.

Luke Russert RT @charliespiering: Pelosi and women Democrats booing and mocking a male reporter. . . not sure who it is

[email protected]lukerussert gets groans from women on stage by asking Pelosi if her leadership means younger leadership can’t move forward

— Alex Pappas (@AlexPappasDC) November 14, 2012

Luke Russert asks if Pelosi staying on prevents younger ppl from stepping up. He gets booed by all of the women in Congress… #heyladies

— Rebecca Berg (@rebeccagberg) November 14, 2012

RT @realclearscottThe response to @lukerussert‘s very legitimate Q to @nancypelosi is really something to behold…

— Tim Miller (@Timodc) November 14, 2012

Libs on Twitter also freaked out. How dare he treat Nancy Pelosi as he would any other politician. Doesn’t he know that “empowerment” means being treated as a delicate flower who surely can’t be held accountable for anything. She’s lucky she can hold a gavel, much less remember if she has one or not.

@lukerussert would never ask McConnell if he’s blocking younger members from moving up. Way to be offensive Luke. #Pelosi

Pelosi’s body has a way of shutting down a “Legitimate” sexist question from Luke Russert, the confirmed Douche Bag.

— Micheal Stinson (@Symbolman) November 14, 2012

That kid got his job due to nepotism so this is rich: “Nancy Pelosi swats down Luke Russert’s offensive question!” ”

— Lisa Guerrero (@4lisaguerrero) November 14, 2012

Hey, @lukerussert, #peggynoonan & #georgewill called. They want to buy you a drink, nincompoop. #pelosi

But, wait. Don’t Progressives of Pallor always criticize the GOP for being the party of old white people? What’s good for the goose, toots.

Lament “old white men” of the GOP= Sound analysis.Ask #Pelosi if its time to move along? “Age [email protected]ingrahamangle

I stand corrected: (2) Luke Russert asked a good question.Pelosi tried to laugh it off and had her phalanx of Dem women boo him.

— Maxwell Power (@power_maxwell) November 14, 2012

Luke Russert took to Twitter to explain his question, which was a good one.

Negatives: Very polarizing, moderates hurt by association. Fires up #GOP. She’s an older face for a younger party

— Luke Russert (@LukeRussert) November 14, 2012

While Pelosi laughed off my Q as age-ist, many House Ds will privately gripe it hurts caucus that all 3 leaders are 70+.

— Luke Russert (@LukeRussert) November 14, 2012

The longer the top 3 stay, the longer it takes to infuse the caucus with new blood like #GOP did w Cantor, Ryan, McCarthy etc.

— Luke Russert (@LukeRussert) November 14, 2012

Bingo! But, you know, facts don’t matter. They have gender identity politics to wage. You’ve come a long way, baby!

A happy warrior puts the faux-outrage in a hilarious, ageism-mocking nutshell.

Elderly women often take up hobbies; scrapbooking, collecting Precious Moments figurines, destroying Western civilization. #Pelosi
