Wingnuts Simply Do Not Care For Nancy Pelosi Answering Back To A Man

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

This is Nancy Pelosi, mom, grandma, Armani model, and once the most powerful woman in the nation. And here she is, flappin’ her gums about blah blah blah middle class blah blah blah who cares? Well, at some point during this period of time, when she is distinctly not making anyone a sandwich, Texas idiot and Ponzi Scheme lover Pete Sessions apparently laughs at her, because “gentleman.” And does Nancy Pelosi apologize as she should have, for being so ridiculous and also a member of Congress, in fact the leader of one of the two parties? She does not. She gets “snippy” with him.

Here is Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, explaining how Nancy Pelosi got “snippy” with Sessions, in the aptly titled “Nancy Pelosi Gets Snippy With GOP Rep During House Floor Speech.”

The moment occurred after Rep. Pelosi claimed that Congress would “abandon efforts to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy,” as Charlie Spiering puts it.

“Pelosi framed the debate in terms of a ‘middle income tax cut’ asserting that two-thirds of the House would vote in favor of the idea,” he adds.

That’s when someone in the House audibly chuckled.

“Do I detect your smirk to mean that you don’t think Republicans will vote for middle income tax cuts Mr. Sessions?” an irritated Pelosi snapped.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Nancy Pelosi actually had “snapped” at him, instead of just glaring for a moment and then continuing on in her well-modulated, unshrill voice? Wouldn’t it be great if some women members occasionally got up and hollered and shrieked and bitched and cried and went straight PMS crack mom I will pull this car over so help me God?

Yes it would. Shut the fuck up, The Blaze.

It would have probably been a more effective tactic for her to just walk over there and kick him square in the nuts. Bet that would have gone viral on the netz.

PugglesRule December 13, 2012 at 10:47 am

And after he stopped crying like a little girl, he'd try to convince everyone it never happened.

CrunchyKnee December 13, 2012 at 10:49 am

Sessions doesn't have these nuts that you speak of. But, that would be funny.

BaldarTFlagass December 13, 2012 at 10:51 am

Yeah, I should have put "vagina" instead of "nuts."

Lizzietish81 December 13, 2012 at 10:53 am

Which btw, fucking hurts when hit. Maybe not as bad as nuts, but still.

gingerland62 December 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

Any girl that rode a "boys bike" knows that.

Terry December 13, 2012 at 11:03 am

A 2×4 between the eyes, just like with a mule.

freakishlywrong December 13, 2012 at 11:17 am

With votes, of course.

PugglesRule December 14, 2012 at 10:16 am

Or an airgun with votes! What?

Lizzietish81 December 13, 2012 at 10:43 am

don't forget, its impossible for Republicans to be undisciplined and disrespectful, while that's all the Democrats ever are.

Isyaignert December 13, 2012 at 1:32 pm

The Dems really are the adults in the room; the 'cons are just crazy two-year old sociopaths.

PugglesRule December 14, 2012 at 10:16 am

IOKIYAR, because.

spends2much December 13, 2012 at 10:44 am

Isn't it about time the GOP introduced legislation forbidding women from talking back? Also, black guys. The Pelosi-Obama Bill, better known as Menopause-Uppity to the Republicans.

BaldarTFlagass December 13, 2012 at 10:46 am

She wouldn't have gotten away with this shit in the Michigan legislature.

Toomush_Infer December 13, 2012 at 10:57 am

Fer shizzle…

Spider-Jerk December 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

And as the Michigan legislature is best used as a reverse barometer for determining What Is A Good Idea, that means this was fairly awesome.

ChillBill December 13, 2012 at 10:46 am

Nancy makes the worst sammiches ever.

CrunchyKnee December 13, 2012 at 10:46 am

Of course the Repubtards are the "grown-ups" and shit. Fuck them with a Howitzer full of "votes."

sullivanst December 13, 2012 at 10:48 am

The Blaze: if they printed it, I'd burn it.

cheetojeebus December 13, 2012 at 2:50 pm

2 copies.
poop on one.
wipe with the other.

PuckStopsHere December 13, 2012 at 10:48 am

It wasn't a smirk. It was just Sessions sitting down on his balls again. (Which hurts, btw.)

ButthurtWingers2012 December 14, 2012 at 5:24 pm

You'd like to think that…but really the chuckle didn't specifically come from Sessions but instead it came from whichever Kochtopus member who shoves his hand up Sessions butt to make him speak who chuckled because come on….like the Koch brothers would ever want ANYONE but themselves to receive a tax cut.

sundaytrucker December 13, 2012 at 10:48 am

A real woman wouldn't be all snippy and back-talking, she'd just with-hold sex like a lady.

glasspusher December 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

Island of Lesbos LIBEL!

MosesInvests December 13, 2012 at 11:48 am

Lysistrata libel!

freakishlywrong December 13, 2012 at 10:49 am

Asshole. She should have literally gotten snippy with him. Bitch shoulda cut a bitch.

gingerland62 December 13, 2012 at 11:02 am

I'd like to snip off Glen Beck's…..tongue.

Lot_49 December 13, 2012 at 10:49 am

Didn't there used to be a tradition that members don't address each other by name, but rather as "the gentleman from Texas"? And didn't there also used to be a tradition that all remarks were addressed to the speaker, rather than directly to another member? And weren't these traditions borrowed from the Mother of Parliaments, over their in Good Britain? And can't you read about this in Trollope's lesser novel The Way We Live Now, in which a railroad-building plutocrat gets elected and tramples on all these great traditions?

Maybe they've let all that go, along with the idea of actual "debate," in the sense of listening to each others' arguments. Oh well…you gotta fill those hours on CSPAN somehow.

MosesInvests December 13, 2012 at 11:51 am

Supposedly an actual exchange from the Mother of Parliaments:
"The right honourable gentleman has the manners of a pig."
-"Boo! Retract!"
"I retract that last. The right honourable gentleman *hasn't* the manners of a pig."

SuspectedDemocrat December 13, 2012 at 12:07 pm

YOU LIE!

Lot_49 December 13, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Perfect.

sati_demise December 13, 2012 at 2:20 pm

I challenge you to a duel. Where are my damn gloves?

Schmannnity December 13, 2012 at 10:50 am

I would like for it to get a lot snippier, like Prime Minister's Questions.

HistoriCat December 13, 2012 at 11:20 am

Hear hear!

freakishlywrong December 13, 2012 at 10:50 am

NEEDS MOAR FLAMING EYED NANCY GIF.

the_deliverator December 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

Yes! I hereby submit that all Nancy stories get the flaming eye gif! It makes my day every time i see it.

AlterNewt December 13, 2012 at 10:51 am

Comity is for pussies.

mrblifil December 13, 2012 at 10:54 am

I''ll say. I once saw a pussy that had comity all over it. "Now that's comity," I said.

gingerland62 December 13, 2012 at 11:03 am

Kitty Comity?

TootsStansbury December 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

What would have been cool is if she'd up and beat him senseless with a chair.

Biff December 13, 2012 at 11:35 am

Both Geraldo and The Sheik know a thing or two about chairs.

zippy_w_pinhead December 13, 2012 at 12:30 pm

as does Clint

CindynEncinitas December 13, 2012 at 4:48 pm

and Anderson Cooper.

Lizzietish81 December 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

It would have been funnier though if she had asked him if he had anything he would like to share with the rest of the House and stared at him until he explained himself or apologized.

BaldarTFlagass December 13, 2012 at 10:54 am

And "Are you chewing gum, Mr Sessions?"

axonneuron December 13, 2012 at 11:16 am

"hope you brought enough for everyone!"

HogeyeGrex December 13, 2012 at 11:32 am

"Wow. She's strict."

Gayer_Than_Thou December 13, 2012 at 10:56 am

You underestimate Republicans' ability to bloviate endlessly about nothing, and overestimate their sense of shame. But as Nancy Pelosi slash fiction, it kind of works.

PugglesRule December 14, 2012 at 10:31 am

Who is Nancy being slashed with, Michele Bachmann?

EnnuiThereYet? December 13, 2012 at 2:15 pm

All while brandishing her knuckle-slapping ruler.

hagajim December 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

Appalling and disgraceful…yeah that pretty much covers Pete Sessions. Besides, he was smirking because the Republicans have no respect for women. I think they've made that abundantly clear.

Blueb4sinrise December 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

Sorry, what now? Wasn't listening . Clicked the Sports Illustrated link on Friday's Hot Chicks instead.

ChrisM2011 December 13, 2012 at 10:52 am

Next time she needs to kick him square in the stimulus package.

NinjaCat_Baba December 13, 2012 at 10:53 am
Ruhe December 13, 2012 at 10:55 am

No doubt Beck's audience at "The Blaze" found this to be a very tasty morsel, a delectable little hate-snack if you will. No matter how fat they get they can always enjoy another bite of this sort of dish.

Tilley December 13, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Can't wait til they finally have that one thin mint.

noodlesalad December 13, 2012 at 10:55 am

Haw haw responsible government.
Haw haw middle class.
Haw haw ladies talking.

Fuck these guys, forever, with votes, please.

jakegittes December 13, 2012 at 10:55 am

I think Beck should apologize, send her a pajamagram and a $5.00 gift certificate to be utilized on whatever Nancy's little old heart desires from The Blaze marketplace. She just might find something she likes on the Emergency Preparedness page. Like maybe the Family Survival Emergency Seed Bank – For a Flourishing 1.5 Acre Garden for $79.99.

BaldarTFlagass December 13, 2012 at 11:00 am

I hope you just made that up about the Seed Bank, and that you did not actually go and look at that site.

jakegittes December 13, 2012 at 11:25 am

Mea culpa. Mea culpa. I looked at the site. I also found a really good deal on a Stations of the Cross set. $249.99. Everybody should get one. Under penalty of death.

shelwood46 December 13, 2012 at 12:17 pm

You forgot jeans. And the rocket that comes with them: http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/VideoArchive

jakegittes December 13, 2012 at 12:22 pm

One word: "Fuck."

Goonemeritus December 13, 2012 at 10:56 am

Well now my pearls need restringing from all the clutching that video forced me to do.

mrblifil December 13, 2012 at 10:56 am

It's times like this that I start to see the upside to Conceal and Carry.

Naked_Bunny December 13, 2012 at 10:57 am

Wouldn’t it be great if some women members occasionally got up and hollered and shrieked and bitched and cried and went straight PMS crack mom

Then they'd be stealing from Glenn Beck.

docterry6973 December 13, 2012 at 12:17 pm

So true. Has Beck been doing as much crying on-air lately? It is a rhetorical question; in truth I'd be happier knowing less about Beck.

BaldarTFlagass December 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

“Do I detect your smirk to mean that you don’t think Republicans will vote for middle income tax cuts Mr. Sessions?”

"I don't expect you to 'detect,' Ms Pelosi. I expect you to die!!!"

shastakoala December 13, 2012 at 7:42 pm

"Do not shoot her it will just make her angry!"

GeorgiaBurning December 13, 2012 at 11:01 am

If Nancy really got "snippy" with Sessions he'd fit into tighter jeans.

Kid_Charlemagne December 13, 2012 at 11:01 am

It bears repeating that Jay-yuff Sayshuns is the dumbest member of Congress by a long shot.

CrunchyKnee December 13, 2012 at 11:03 am

And man oh man, is that ever a low bar.

HistoriCat December 13, 2012 at 11:23 am

I'm not sure that's true (Louie Gohmert gets my vote) but the dipshit in question was Pete Sessions.

docterry6973 December 13, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Right now I would go with Gohmert as dumbest, but to be fair that is only based on what he says and does.

HistoriCat December 13, 2012 at 12:22 pm

What has this nation come to if we are going to start judging politicians on what they say and do?

Toomush_Infer December 13, 2012 at 11:02 am

There's only one thing Democrats in the House should be saying: "Where's your fucking proposals, assholes?"….over and over again….freeing up the middle class tax thing, in my mind, is just bad business – you know they have to do this, anyway, or not bother coming back in January….But Nancy does wear a big pair – I'm remembering when she handed the giant gavel to Boehner, because his was so little….

glasspusher December 13, 2012 at 11:04 am

OT but it looks like Assad is going to have to open up an ophthalmology practice in Russia pretty soon, the NYT reports.

Biff December 13, 2012 at 11:39 am

Wish Rand Paul would self-deport and join his practice.

glasspusher December 13, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Eye see what you did there.

fuflans December 13, 2012 at 1:29 pm

i'm just waiting ti find out if the israelis poisoned arafat.

Bezoar December 13, 2012 at 1:52 pm

I bet the Russians did it; or at least, supplied the means. If the Israelis wanted him dead, wouldn't they have just shot him? Nothing for them in making it look like a natural event, right?

freakishlywrong December 13, 2012 at 11:06 am

Oh and Boner, this is called "governing". Please take note. (I fucking love me some Nancy Pelosi).

DahBoner December 13, 2012 at 11:07 am

When you pass a nutter with a FIRE PELOSI bumpersticker, what they mean is build a fire beneath her and burn her because she's a WITCH…

ProgressiveInga December 13, 2012 at 6:37 pm

She's fierce, she's Italian, she will stone cold choke a bitch. What's not to love?

Mumbletypeg December 13, 2012 at 11:08 am

Snip, Snap and Smirk was a dreamy children's book series I enjoyed growing up. Oh, wait…

commiegirl99 December 13, 2012 at 11:35 am

Don't forget FLicka Ricka and Dicka!!!

Mumbletypeg December 13, 2012 at 11:47 am

We had those read to us too although I recall the sisters less vividly — but the above image I linked? Yeah, the brothers-three seemed to have extra rich-sensory stories and images to their tales.
I can still taste the bonbons and cookies-grown-on trees (from my imagination) as we read about their adventures with that princess and the horse~

Abernathy December 13, 2012 at 11:08 am

Crybabies. Wonkette is always getting SNIPY with me, and you don't hear me complaining.

ElPinche December 13, 2012 at 11:10 am

Jeff was smirking because he just remembered he's got a klan meeting tonight.

(circa 2009) http://image.blingee.com/images17/content/output/

orygoon December 13, 2012 at 11:14 am

For fuck's sake, just give Nancy back her hammer and stop whining (and gerrymandering).

Abernathy December 13, 2012 at 11:15 am

House floor pro I know you know
I go psycho when the teabags hit
Just can't sit
Gotta get snippy wit it

Texan_Bulldog December 13, 2012 at 11:16 am

Nancy should have hauled little Pete over her knee & given him the spanking he deserves. God knows she could have beat his ass clean off with one finely crafted Italian leather pump.

Cleopatriot December 13, 2012 at 11:20 am

I thought Glen Beck was dead.

Tilley December 13, 2012 at 12:57 pm

not technically.

doloras December 13, 2012 at 3:28 pm

No, what I said was "HE SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES".

BigSkullF*ckingDog December 13, 2012 at 11:22 am

I forget, is "snippy" the code for total bitch? Or is it the code for "on the rag"?

HistoriCat December 13, 2012 at 11:46 am

Yes.

SuspectedDemocrat December 13, 2012 at 12:41 pm

AOT,K

ManchuCandidate December 13, 2012 at 11:24 am

Demrats should be "rude" and call the GOPers on their shit.

viennawoods13 December 13, 2012 at 11:28 am

Nancy is awesome, but she needs to duct-tape that hand of hers to her hip.

TootsStansbury December 13, 2012 at 11:29 am

I hope I have the patience to make it to 2014 when we can boot these crazy motherfuckers out. They're wrecking the place.

lulzmonger December 13, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Make that 2020, because gerrymandering redistricting.

smellypossum December 13, 2012 at 11:31 am

Time to get snippy (and medieval) on his ass with a pair of hedge clippers.

fatbob54 December 13, 2012 at 11:38 am

71 comments and no one has commented about how little "Peter" Sessions is? I have to be the one to go there? Fine… [insert tiny genitalia joke here]

Naked_Bunny December 13, 2012 at 12:35 pm

We're self-conscious?

Tilley December 13, 2012 at 12:59 pm

"wouldn't take too much snippin' to set that boy right"?

SayItWithWookies December 13, 2012 at 11:44 am

Well Pete Sessions is head of the National Republican Congressional Committee, which means he just presided over a loss of seats in the House, he just got divorced last year, and he's about as slimy as a frightened lamprey — so I'd say it's the final snicker of a soon-to-be-extinct corrupt teabagger. It makes it much easier to excuse such behavior when it's just the nervous laughter of the doomed.

James Michael Curley December 13, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Greg Walden, (R-OR) is the elected replacement to Sessions to take over on Jan. 3,

JustPixelz December 13, 2012 at 11:50 am

Hey this is a fun game!

Senator John McCain got snippy with Barack Obama over Susan Rice

Governor Rick Perry got snippy with patriotic Americans by saying Texas may secede

Representative Michele Bachmann got snippy with sane people by saying the State Department was being run by the Muslim Brotherhood.

PugglesRule December 14, 2012 at 10:33 am

This is starting to sound like an Elmore Leonard screenplay. Get Snippy, starring Snippy the Wonder Puggle.

neiltheblaze December 13, 2012 at 11:54 am

I bet if you opened Pete Sessions' closet door you'd find a hood with eyeholes.

PugglesRule December 14, 2012 at 10:33 am

And more closets?

JustPixelz December 13, 2012 at 11:58 am

I perused the comments in blaze world. Those people are not nice. We may have a mean thing or two to say, but they take themselves so seriously:

Nancy you doddering old b*tch go change your diaper.

We can’t get rid of the Communists till we defraud our elections.

What a freakin idiot Polosi is! She looks like some spastic ol bag on drugs and don’t make a lick of sense.

I kinda like the last one, except I'd replace "Pelosi" with "Limbaugh".

docterry6973 December 13, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Some of us can't help looking like some spastic old bag on drugs who don't make a lick of sense.

shelwood46 December 13, 2012 at 12:27 pm

I don't think "defraud" means what they think it does. Or maybe they do know exactly what it means.

SuspectedDemocrat December 13, 2012 at 12:39 pm

In either case, they are using it properly.

SuspectedDemocrat December 13, 2012 at 12:24 pm

The Blaze… isn't that the nutty Glen Beck site all about selling gold for Agenda 22 or whatever the fuck they're paranoid about?

I like my Wonkette in the morning. It angries up the blood!

zippy_w_pinhead December 13, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Looks like the war on caterpillars is going full blast…

Tilley December 13, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Oh, they think THAT's "snippy," do they? I'd show 'em "snippy." Now where are my pinking shears?

fuflans December 13, 2012 at 1:33 pm

wingtards can say ' you lie' to POTUS, but they daren't do more than smirk at queen nancy.

Isyaignert December 13, 2012 at 1:35 pm

When Nancy Pelosi was the Speaker, Congress' approval rating was in the 40s; now that the 'cons have been in charge of the House for a while, it's near single digits.

Let's reinstate Nancy Pelosi as Speaker in 2014.

southernboyman December 13, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Wish Nancy had down a towel "snap" to ol Petey's nut sack.

lulzmonger December 13, 2012 at 2:10 pm

It's a natural reflex with these parasites – they can't stand anyone who actually works for their taxpayer-sponsored paycheck.

Soon as she stops doing anything meaningful, she'll be "One Of The Guys."

Noah_Hegemon December 13, 2012 at 2:17 pm

If someone at the Blaze thinks that was being snippy, I'll bet Nancy has a can of whoop ass she'd really like to show Jayuff how it's opened.

sati_demise December 13, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Oh that Bawl'imore gal, she got some class hon.

fatbob54 December 13, 2012 at 2:51 pm

"What a freakin idiot Polosi is! She looks like some spastic ol bag on drugs and don’t make a lick of sense."

Who among us hasn't had the sense to lick an old bag of drugs when times were tough?

Troglodeity December 13, 2012 at 2:53 pm

What's she complaining about? It's not like he shouted "You lie!" in the middle of her speech.

BZ1 December 13, 2012 at 5:34 pm

The lowlifes on the Blaze have the temerity to use ids like "Ghandi was a Republican". Oh dear…

mosaickmind December 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm

For me, "snippy" is taking finely honed scissors, delicately opening the scrotum, extracting the testicles and precisely stuffing them into the heckler's mouth.

hollyrocks209 December 14, 2012 at 10:47 am

Words cannot describe how much I adore Nancy Pelosi.

gullywompr December 13, 2012 at 11:01 am

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
