Are you tired of hearing about Paris Hilton, White house bad news and stupid defeatist crapola? I have the perfect solution for you!
Charlie Rose had Speaker Nancy Pelosi on his program Wednesday, and all of that delectable Pelosiness is now available to you on the internets! Just go to this link, "Charlie Rose - An hour with Nancy Pelosi"
and let the warm comforting glow of Nancy Pelosi run all over you body. Imagine, an entire hour
of sane, rational television programing!
Despite some stupid questions from Charlie Rose, Speaker Pelosi was eloquent and direct throughout. Rose even stepped on a couple of her punch lines, but she carried through like the divine Amazonian goddess that she is. I was absolutely mesmerized by the sheer Nancy Pelosiosity of it!
This was better than watching Countdown with Keith Olbermann
, The Daily Show
and the The Colbert Report
combined! Just click on the full screen button and prepare yourself for a full hour of delicious Nancy Pelosi - she's the San Francisco treat!
But don't take my word for it. These are some of the comments
that people made about Pelosi being on the show:
A great interview, one of your best. It was refreshing to hear a politician be frank, and yes, honest, to herself, to you, and hence, to we, the people. [...] I enjoyed it, made my day. Comment by Rachel
Pelosi is a very good speaker and communicator. I am so proud she is the first woman Speaker of the House. She represents women well. I hope that more women follow in her footsteps. Comment by Harrod
I stumbled on Charlie Rose last night during a deliberate Paris Hilton avoidance manouever. How fitting that in trying to skip over those who represent everything bad (amoral, cheap, phoney, trite, opportunistic and false) in American culture I found something honest-to-God good in the form of Ms. Pelosi. I have never before heard her speak and I am quite honestly stumped. I can't remember when I heard a political insider speak so candidly without buzzword, cliche or spin. [...]Comment by Sydney
Very impressive interview of a very impressive politician. Very refreshing leadership after 6 years of this failed presidency. I especially liked Pelosi's response that Bush - or as Bill Maher has called him "President Sh*t-for-Brains" - has become oblivious. That really sums up his presidency. Oh well, only 18 more months to go. Comment by W.G. Lamb
I find myself pretty much 'trusting' Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her applied sincerity concerning Washington today [shields down]. In America she is a living classical, historical figure being the first woman speaker of the house, and I appreciate her deeply. She also arranges the political stage to make way for a woman seated as president, and America would be a far better place if she were seated as president today. Comment by Giovanna Louisa
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the most outstanding political figure you have had on your show in years. She is brilliant, lucid, clever, and humble too. It's rare, indeed, for a politician to actually explain how our governance process works - yet she bothered to inform her audience. She's not arrogant. And she avoided trite phrases as well. Too bad she's not our president but the world is, at the very least, fortunate enough to have her in a key leadership role to prompt everyone to achieve consensus for the common good. Please have her back on your show soon. She's a breath of fresh, sane air!Comment by Joyce Walker
There were a few detractors, and I include some of them in the name of fairness. Nancy would want it that way, because she always listens to all sides of an argument - right before she pounces like a wild jungle cat!
Pelosi did not answer Charley Roes question most of the time. I am of the impression that she tried to reply oh how the House would answer. She gives me the impression that she is Not a Leader, but one that wants other people opinion. From this interview and other times she has spoken, I think she is the main reason that the Democrates and the President have a low approval rating. Comment by Jim
This is an interesting argument, the author is stating that Speaker Pelosi is responsible for both the low approval ratings of the president and the "Democrates". Kind of an overly wide swath that the author is trying to cut, in my humble opinion.
I listen to both Liberal and Conservative radio. I must say that the Liberal stations have the most hateful comentators. [...] The Liberal stations have hosts who make nothing but jokes about the President and other Republicans and conservative views. Comment by splashy
Oh, yes. If only liberal radio was more kind and loving like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly.
Having had the opportunity to meet Ms. Pelosi as a fund raiser for a non profit cause, I can assure what Rose Show viewers saw last night was a cultivated stage presence and not the real Madame Speaker. To sum it up...you would never want to be in a life boat with this self motivated pirana.
If she is indeed a piranha as you state, madam, she is our frikkin' piranha. Go get 'em Nancy!
