    Even her own party is getting fed up with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker

    A freshman House Democrat from Alabama said Tuesday he would not vote for Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as Speaker again because of her “divisive and polarizing” image.

    “I would not vote for her,” Rep. Parker Griffith (D-Ala.) told a constituent at a town hall meeting when asked if he'd support Pelosi. “Someone that divisive and that polarizing cannot bring us together.”

    Griffith represents a conservative district in Alabama that had been long held by former Rep. Bud Cramer (D), who retired after nine terms. Griffith is one of the most conservative Democrats in the House and has bucked leadership and the White House on healthcare and other issues.

    Griffith told constituents that only Blue Dog Democrats could prevent the healthcare bill from moving forward in the House, The Huntsville Times reported. He said that conservative Republicans couldn't stop Democratic priorities.

    The first-term lawmaker won last fall with 52 percent of the vote in a district carried by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). He’s expected to face a tough reelection challenge from a Republican next fall.

    Analysts have highlighted Griffith's district as one likely to flip to Republican control next fall. The Cook Political Report recently projected that Democrats could lose at least 20 seats in next year's midterm elections.

    Griffith joked that if Pelosi didn't care for his criticism, he has a message for her.

    "If she doesn't like it, I've got a gift certificate to the mental health center," he said, according to the Times.
    In 2007 and again in 2009, Pelosi received unanimous support from House Democrats in the elections for Speaker.

    Adak Alaska is just lovely year round. Nancy would be very happy there. Just adjust her thorazine intake a bit to balance her mood swings for the weather.

    Too bad Teddy didn't give Broomhilda a ride in their younger years.....
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army
