Republicans are taking some heat today for suggesting that Gen. Stanley McChrystal should put Nancy Pelosi "in her place."And because they disagree with Nancy and want her to stop talking, what do they get? Oh wait for it folks-you knew it would happen eventually.....they can't call them racists 'cause 'ole Nan is as white as they come, but they can call them sexists. Of course.
In a statement criticizing Pelosi for not supporting a troop surge in Afghanistan, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) said Pelosi should stop meddling in foreign policy.
"If Nancy Pelosi’s failed economic policies are any indicator of the effect she may have on Afghanistan, taxpayers can only hope McChrystal is able to put her in her place," the statement reads.
Democrats are jumping all over the NRCC for alleged sexism.That's OK though, Ken's got it:
But Ken Spain, NRCC's communication director, is defending his organization's claim:Right on Ken! I couldn't agree more. Why doesn't Nan just mind her own business and stop trying to screw up the rest of the world.
“The Speaker of the House is taking on a highly decorated general who has outlined a strategy in Afghanistan that she once claimed to advocate. This is the same San Francisco liberal whose military foresight — or lack thereof — led her to oppose General Petraeus’ successful surge strategy. Up until it became politically inconvenient, Pelosi and her puppets were referring to Afghanistan as the ‘real central front’ in the war on terror, now their excuse is that there is just not enough political will to keep America safe. Nancy Pelosi might think she’s a general, but she’s playing out of her league and she knows it.”
