Apologies

Good Morning!

Last night I met some friends in Columbia for dinner and drinks, and then drove back up to Greenville. Tonight is our hotel's end-of-year party, and tomorrow I'll be driving to Summerville after work.

So, this week I'm kind of taking off of blogging until Saturday's recipe.

That being said, I was called out last night on why I can't stand Nancy Pelosi. Back when I called myself a Democrat, (no worries, I am most assuredly NOT Republican either) I was regularly embarrassed by Pelosi. But I haven't thought about her for so long that when asked for specifics, I completely blanked - remembering only her intent to ignore all the repairing of Bush's catastrophic presidency and instead pursue him legally. When cornered, I completely failed to support my own argument.

So, over the next few days, I'm going to be doing my research. Normally I'm able to back up my statements - but in this case I wasn't. This is not sitting well with me.

Therefore, my Sunday * this week is going to be replaced with what I find out, rediscover and ponder when it comes to Nancy Pelosi. I'm looking forward to this.

I'm sure your feelings about Pelosi are well-founded, Will, being the reasonable person that you are. No apologies necessary....I look forward to your post out of simple curiosity, though I know you like a good argument now and then....

I sometimes think that Pelosi is just in the pool just a tad bit over her head (not a gender bias thing - I would say the same thing if her name was Ned)She has done less with more than anyone I can remember. I long for the days of Tip O'Neill.

It's perfectly okay to dislike someone, either male or female, Repub. of Dem. because something about them irks the shit out of you. I do it all the time.

And I'm not just saying that because Pelosi irks the shit out of me.

The Evil Twin is a diehard Ditto head (loves Rush). I'm sure he could give you a laundry list of things to dislike about Pelosi. There is something smarmy about her, but I try to ignore most of the political BS.

I am so not a Pelosi fan. I agree with Doc-she has done less with more.

The "irk" factor is pretty huge on her...

Perhaps I was being about as effective as Pelosi, but I thought your comment system was defecto, and yet here it is working hard as middle management. Go figure.

I'll go back and comment on your other posts, ones I intended to comment on but was unable to. Or I'll just Pelosi and shrug it off if it never happens. I mean, times are hard, we all need a break right? Right.
