Did we mention we were at a super swanky reception Thursday afternoon in Philadelphia, where Ed Rendell got a big award from the Equality Forum? Yeah, well, your favorite speaker lady Nancy Pelosi also got an award at that place, and it was even bigger than the one Rendell got!

Pelosi’s sexxxy trophy was the 21st Annual International Role Model award, for HER work in advancing LGBT equality. Did we get a picture with her? Heck nope, because that is not to be on this trip, apparently. Perhaps when we go skiing together with the King Of France in Aspen later this year, but not right now.

But she stood RIGHT NEXT TO US.

pelosirendell2

And she schmoozed with HER pal Ed Rendell:

pelosirendell

During her acceptance speech, she talked about the insane GOP platform, and how it’s so fucking regressive it actually supports CONVERSION THERAPY for the gays — you know, that “pray away the gay” shit — and as an aside, and not under her breath, she described her feelings about that platform:

“Pathetic.”

And then she dropped her mic and skedaddled off to another event, where somebody else probably gave her a prize for being a badass.

That’s what happens when you are Nancy Fuckin’ Pelosi.

Wanna see the armband she gave us? Of course you do:

pelosiband

We will wear it every day for the rest of our life.

    Nancy’s speech was electric. Sadly it wsa static electricity.

    So, on CNN they’re busy critiquing Hillary’s speech. *eyeroll* I know that its common practice to give the press advance copies of a speech so they know what to expect and can prewrite some of their comments and only have to add in stuff about ad-lbs and tone. But, when did they start actually dissecting it hours before it’s given? I don’t really remember this being a thing in the past. Have I just not been paying enough attention?

      I have no clue. The past few elections I’d been too busy dealing with life to watch the conventions or coverage of them. (Last time, I was working 12-hour overnights every night.) This is my first time watching the conventions since entering the workforce.

    • Brian

      the first time I remember that was last week with Trump’s speech, but they seemed more shocked that they got it so early, early afternoon. But they also spoke about the dark tone of it.

    • Astraea

      I’m surprised they got an advanced copy at all, since she was reportedly going to be working on it to the last minute.

  • Astraea

    I was feeling nerdy about A Model of Christian Charity earlier. It’s so contradictory because it’s fantastic and awful at the same time, much like the history of America.

    But this convention sounds so much like a Progressive reclaiming of the vision of the sermon and the idea of the shining city on the hill. Claiming it as our legacy but making it better than it could have been from a Puritan colonist in 1630.

          It’s my fault – I elected to post it as an image rather than let Disqus do the embedded tweet thing, because I wanted to show the whole exchange (which Disqus doesn’t do).

          • Villago Delenda Est

            Yeah, but you’re not responsible for the need to refresh to see anything imbedded or a posted image, which is what Disqus forces one to do. So don’t beat yourself up! Save that energy for GOTV in November!

      • King of America

        It’s not that it’s just an incredibly savage burn, or that it was Zen koan terse, or even that it was BILL FUCKING KRISTOL delivering it – it’s all that plus the smug goddam avatar image floating next to it.

        If Adams has any ability for self-introspection – and he pretty obviously does not – this would be the moment that he deletes his account and reconsiders his entire frigging life.

    Trump was applauded at the RNC from the folk carrying LGBT-Q signs when he promised to protect them from being targeted by by Islamists as they were in the slaughter at the Orlando gay bar. I don’t know how he’ll do this effectively through aggression.

        Right, because who needs artists, and why should poor kids get to have art or music or theater in school. Why should we train artists so that there’s someone to fucking TEACH this stuff in the schools. Who needs artists so that there can be a freaking line up of Broadway stars singing about love at the freaking convention This is what I’m talking about. I’m sorry, art is just as important as reading and writing and science and math, and it is privilege speaking that assumes that “these people” don’t have time for frills like art. Imagine if you said that about white suburbanites.

        Ok now I’m hyperventilating.

        Art isn’t just “awesome.” That’s dismissive. Art is central. Art is what makes us human. Art turns STEM into STEAM and makes the engine run.

      We have something called Idea Works here in my town. It’s a maker lab. They do arts, science, crafts, hydroponics, you name it. They have their own downtown workshop and they take their show on the road to local libraries and farmers markets. It’s awesome and attracts people of all ages and interests.

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        And I bet they did it on their own with little help from local pols, except when the photo ops come up.

    • proudgrampa

      Well, I don’t know Art, but I know his brother Moe.

    • WampusKat

      Why? I’m an artist, but still… why at a political converntion?

      • House0fTheBlueLights

        Because we’re a part of the economy as much as autoworkers or teachers or business people but no one ever talks about our very vital part in the economy. Just a passing mention, like the good reverend mentioning non-believers. But just acknowledgement that someone sees our role.

  • Apple Scruff

    So, did they purge the arena of protestors? Or are they just staying quiet so they don’t get thrown out before Hillary takes the stage? They’re vewy vewy quiet tonight.

    Also, from what I kept hearing on the podcasts today, the loud people were a small minority of the California delegation.

    • malsperanza

      They’re waiting for the She-Whore of Wall Street to take the stage.

      • Apple Scruff

        I hope that is not true. But the one thing I heard is that they plan to walk out when she gets up there. Which is like, who the fuck cares? They’ll be gone and it will be quiet.

        • malsperanza

          It will provide a clip that Fox can play over and over and over. Because any pretense that these are not Trump voters is long gone. And fuck Bernie Sanders for making it happen.

          • Alan

            I have a very hard time believing that anyone supporting Sanders would then vote for Trump.

          • malsperanza

            Believe it. There is no other real explanation for what these dicks are doing. They are not Dems; they are in the house on sufferance.

            And frankly, Bernie knew this was coming too.

          • WampusKat

            it’s cute how naive you are.

          • Alan

            Then maybe you can explain it to me. I can believe they were Trump supporters all along attempting disruption but I can’t believe that they supported Bernie and his ideas but could also support Trump and whatever it is that goes on in his head. Mostly young people I believe. Maybe I’m insulated but all of the young people I’m surrounded by daily are highly intelligent and heavily invested in their convictions.

            This is one of my best friends on FB today:
            Anybody out there who’s still a Democrat: Your Big Book of Insults is played out. If your attempt to achieve unity and a victory for Hillary via condescension and schoolyard bullying is to continue through November, you’re going to need some fresh material. You might try the celebrity roast circuit.
            She’s in her 50’s, life-long policy wonk, more intelligent than me. I can’t explain it.

          • Alan

            She doesn’t see the irony?

          • Cindyinencinitas

            This is but a small portion of the vitriol she has posted just today. It’s hopeless.

          • kareemachan

            But you’re not realizing the essential pissiness, self-entitlement, spoiled, want-it-right-now immature mindset that some (definitely no all) Berniebros have. It seems to be more about them getting what they want over any kind of actual political beliefs. And if you balk them, they say, “Fine! I’ll just play with Donnie over there. He’ll give me what I want!” (Maybe I should have included delusional in my description….) There seems to be a lot of foot-stomping and hissy fitting going on…

          • Alan

            So how is voting for Trump going to get them what they want if he is the polar opposite of Bernie? Or do they not really want anything? I still don’t see these people intentionally voting for Trump because they think it will be good. I do see them staying home on election day. Or maybe people are even dumber than I thought? Not likely.

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          They already did a walk out. Like a whole staged thing and eevvverrryyyttthing. Are they the spanish inquisition needing do overs?

          • H0mer0

            To paraphrase Blondie: “don’t go away mad, cuz you’ve been had, don’t go away sad, don’t go be bad, Just GO AWAY!

  • malsperanza

    The sheer number of people of color in the DNC presentation is pretty striking – and must be absolutely freaking the GOP out. This is Obama’s legacy too: the DNC is no longer scared to put people of color onstage, and recognizes that if you ask people to vote for you over and over, you’d better let them be visible.

    • JerryRich

      There were 1,182 black delegates to the DNC versus 18 for the other guys. The math has been done.

      • zerosumgame0005

        has to mean those naughty demon-craps are the REAL racists!!!!11!!!!

    is this where the Mizraki (sp?) exhibit is at?

    Get that arm band back to the vault at the Wonk-Cave ASAP. Intelligence report just in: Do NOT trust the Doctor! He’s a double agent! Do not show him the arm band unless Donna Rose is also in the room. If he tries anything fishy she can sort him out with those Lion Teeth.

    Drive Safely.

    I feel like I need more therapy. Seeing that armband made me want one so I can punch homophobes with it.

    • kareemachan

      With votes, of course, right?

  • Paperless Tiger

    Republicans will never be happy running the legislature. Maybe we could reassign them to monitor all the public restrooms where they like to hang out anyway.

  • Slavakitty

    Evan, that you could write such a warm, heartfelt and generous post after what you’ve been through these past couple weeks is truly amazing. It brought tears to my eyes, but the good kind. You’ve a wonderful gift. Thanks for sharing it with us.
