Furious at their loss in yet another Trump-era special election, Democrats are calling for the head of . . . House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
It’s understandable: Republican ads in Georgia painted the Democrat, Jon Ossoff, as sure to be a Pelosi pawn — a charge that has scored for the GOP in race after race over the last decade.
New York’s own Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Nassau) is far from alone in saying, “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”
And Rice backed Pelosi in last year’s leadership fight. The challenger, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), is even more brutal, warning, “Our brand is worse than Trump’s.”
Thing is, Ryan’s got more of an eye on the real problem: the Democratic brand, which Pelosi in fact embodies perfectly.
She is, after all, a millionaire San Francisco party-line liberal incapable of understanding what most of America wants and needs. (Indeed, seeing eye-to-eye with the Democratic-voting elite is what makes her one of the party’s best fund-raisers.)
