Just when you think the news cannot get any weirder, footage leaks out of Nancy Pelosi going off on some strange stream of consciousness talking about “The Word” (H/T to Edgeoforever and Stateofdisbelief for bringing my attention to this bizarre comment from the Speaker):
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s favorite word is The Word.
“It covers everything. The Word. Fill it in with anything you want,” she told the Catholic Community Conference last month in Washington. In remarks reported by CNSnews.com, and confirmed by her staff, Pelosi, a Catholic, explained how those religious views help guide her public policy.
“They ask me all the time. What is your favorite this? What is your favorite that?” she said, “and one time, what is your favorite word? And I said, ‘My favorite word. That is really easy. My favorite word is The Word, is the Word.’ And that is everything; it says it all for us.”
She continued how “we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be keeping with the values of The Word.” Her voice growing soft, Pelosi asked, “Isn’t it a beautiful word when you think of it?”
Pelosi quotes the Bible, “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.”
What that means, she says, is “the great mystery of our faith. He will come again. He will come again. So we have to make sure we’re prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.”
Someone please explain to me how Pelosi and her merry band of Democrats are the sane, rational ones there to protect us from the apocalypse that would ensue if theocratic flakes like Sarah Palin were running the country. Because hearing Pelosi keep repeating “The Word” over and over again like she’s Oprah peddling The Secret — that really isn’t doing the trick.
What is Pelosi even saying above? It’s gibberish to me. All I know is she is reminding me of Huckabee wanting to change the Constitution to be more like the bible:
“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution,” Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. “But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that’s what we need to do — to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.”
Sadly, looking at Pelosi’s recent comments, it seems as though she thought Huckabee had the basic idea right and just made the mistake of bringing up the Constitution.
I know the Obama party is hell-bent on courting the younger fundies, but what ever happened to good old religious freedom and separation of church and state?
At any rate, here’s “The Wørd” from Stephen Colbert, on Christmas in June and other things sacrilegious:
