Revolt against Pelosi shows a Democratic Party searching for answers

    Nancy Pelosi is, as we say in California, certifiable. She is not only “batty,” but she is BAT-SH$T NUTS. She is in a safe, or “Rotten Borough” Congressional District. She will just keep getting re-elected until she is shot or dies of old age. Democrats are a dying party: Donald saw to that, by coopting some of their social issues and appealing to minorities—the “what have you got to lose?” plaint STRUCK A NERVE.
    Democrats have been “run into” by the freight train of history. Nobody believes them any more. The 18-35’s just weren’t buying Hillary’s bull.
