    She sucks as a leader.  She "lead" the democrats to the biggest single loss of seats in 50 years.  I truly, truly, don't care who would be the minority leader.  Just not Pelosi.  And while we're at it, let's kick Reid to the curb too.  He's even worse!!

      that all political leaders are hated. Newt Gingrich accomplished more for the GOP as speaker than just about anyone. He led them back into power, ruled with an iron fist for years, and accomplished large parts of the Contract with America. Yet he was also toxic and reviled.

      Let's forget the ability to actually control a caucus and pass legislation. Let's just elect an adorable puffin as our minority leader. No one could ever hate a puffin, right?

      •  Mao Tse Tung accomplished a lot too (0+ / 0-)

        Much of it not really something to be proud of.

        Trumpeting Gingrich accomplishments is rather similar.

            •  Quote from xxdr. (0+ / 0-)

              XXDR said "Mao Tse Tung accomplished a lot too" in order to dismiss Pelosi's accomplishments in the house.  That was this person's point.  Not hard to grasp.

              •  And THEN he said (0+ / 0-)

                "Trumpeting Gingrich accomplishments is rather similar."

                Which would then be the subject of his analogy.  I managed to grasp that.

              •  And I should add (0+ / 0-)

                that xxdr said "Mao Tse Tung accomplished a lot too" in response to Johnny Gentle Crooner's post about GINGRICH, not about Pelosi.

                Pelosi's name didn't even appear in Johnny Gentle's post.

                It's true.

            •  I analogized Pelosi to Gingrich (0+ / 0-)

              in terms of legislative accomplishment.

              xxdr analogized Gingrich to Mao.

              Ergo, xxdr analogized Pelosi to Mao via the transitive property.

              •  Looks to me like xxdr zombiexx was just talking (0+ / 0-)

                about Gingrich.  He didn't say "ergo" or anything.
