DEMOCRATS LOSING SO THE PELOSI THE WITCH WON'T RUN FOR SPEAKER
Of course we are all familiar with the Wicked Witch song sung by the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz. So with a minor word change, (dead to gone), I thought this well know lyric was extremely appropriate in light of the report that Nancy Pelosi, the Wicked Witch of the House has told Democrat colleagues that she is not running again for the position of Speaker of the House.
Now don't think that this move has anything to do with a kinder and softer Pelosi or the fact that many Democrats running desperately to get reelected in a year where Democrats, especially in the House are going to be trounced at the polls in November. It has nothing to do with the wicked witch bowing out gracefully in light of the massive failures of Congress under her liberal leadership.
No her stating that she will not run for another term as Speaker has nothing to do with Pelosi being gracious or not wanting the power any longer. Pelosi is much to arrogant to just bow out without a fight. Her not running for Speaker is a result of even this liberal ideologue seeing the hand writing on the wall. Republicans will be taking over the House when the 112th Congress convenes in January of next year and Pelosi knows that with a GOP House she not only will no longer be able to win reelection for Speaker.
Whether she will hold the position of House Minority Leader or not depends on the confidence Democrats still have in her ability to lead them. With many running from her as quickly as possible while running for reelection she stands to return to Congress in January finding herself with either a minor leadership position in the minority or none at all. That is providing she wins reelection in November. Considering her liberal San Francisco District in California her reelection while not set in stone is unfortunately highly likely.
But at least the good news is that The Wicked Witch of the House will be no more as Pelosi will not hold the Speakers seat and thankfully it will also eliminate her from Presidential succession. An idea which has been one of the most chilling facts about her being Speaker. So all together now join me an a rousing chorus, "Ding, dong, the Witch is gone, which old Witch, the Wicked Witch, ding dong Nancy Pelosi the Wicked Witch of the House is GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!
