Nancy {hearts} Antonio

Nancy Pelosi spent eight hours babbling on the House floor the other day, presumably over DACA.

Now, DACA has become the Dems’ favorite issue. How can the mean Republicans – or anyone, for that matter – not love the idea that persons who are breaking the law should leapfrog and be given preference over foreigners who are spending time and treasure in the legal immigration process? The Republicans must be racist!

After all, even Nancy’s six year old grandson wants to look like Antonio!

NANCY PELOSI: I’m reminded of my own grandson. He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Italian] side of the family, shall we say.
And when he had his sixth birthday… he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he’s from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?
He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.


What is it with Dems that makes them inject their progeny when they attempt to make a political point?

How many times have we heard, “How do I explain Donald Trump to my four year old?” Are we supposed to believe four year olds are precocious enough to dip a tiny toe into the political swamp on their own?

Excuse my skepticism, but I’m more likely to believe that Nancy’s grandson is more enthused about orbiting Mars in a Tesla than about looking like he has a nice tan and his grandmother’s brown eyes. Especially since Antonio, Guatemalan as he may be, could as well look Sicilian, name and all.

Nancy’s little anecdote reminds of Greta Ohlsson in the 1974 version of Murder on the Orient Express,

I was born backwards. That is why I work in Africa as missionary, teaching little brown babies more backwards than myself.

As it is, Even House Dems Wonder: What Was The Point Of The Pelosi Filibuster?

Could it be that

Pelosi wanted to make herself look good for the cameras at the expense of her caucus

Too bad Greta Ohlsson couldn’t think of that.
