Controversial NRCC Pelosi remarks

With Reporting By Jenna Staul and Julian Hattem

In the two days since the National Republican Congressional Committee said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be “put in her place” for her comments on Afghanistan, not a single Republican female lawmaker has weighed in on the matter.

The Huffington Post on Wednesday contacted fifteen female lawmakers (fourteen from the House or Representatives) as well as two Republican women’s issues groups to see if they were concerned by the sexist undertone of the statement. Not a single office offered to provide a statement. Several said they would not comment on the matter. Others promised to get back to us and didn’t. So, on Thursday, we tried again, making follow-up calls to those very same offices. Again, there was silence.

“We don’t comment on stuff like this,” emailed Alex Cruz a spokesman for Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL). “Thank you.”

Likewise, an aide to Rep. Mary Bono Mack’s (R-CA) said: “there has not been a comment issued. And if there were one it wouldn’t come from her official office… it would come from the campaign office.” The campaign office never sent word.

A spokesperson for Rep. Sue Myrick’s (R-N.C.) office thanked the Huffington Post for its call. “Rep. Myrick has no comment on the release the NRCC sent out re: Speaker Pelosi,” wrote Taylor Stanford in an email.

An aide to Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) said, “No, no comment.”

Approached in the House of Representatives by a Huffington Post reporter, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) declined a chance to weigh in on the remarks.

The NRCC should have been more clear on the meaning of “place” which equals “broom closet”
“In the two days since the National Republican Congressional Committee said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be “put in back in the broom closet”… that’s the witch’s garage.

The Pope and Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd.
The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and says, “Do you know that with one
little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy?
This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice!”

Pelosi replied, “I seriously doubt that. With one little wave of your hand? Show me.”

So the Pope slapped her.
