Please, God, Don't Make Me Listen to Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid Anymore

Jebus, they're driving me crazy. I can't even really put my finger on what it is. Neither one of them is extremely articulate, so that's part of the problem, but neither one is notable inarticulate, either. They both come off as rather whiny and dogmatic...or so it seems to me. And they both seem incapable of criticizing the war without sounding like "defeatocrats." Maybe it's just me, but whenever I have to hear these folks speak, I end up thinking "lucky for you that your political opponents [here I mean the Bushies in particular, not Republicans in general, of course] are incompetent nuts or you'd be sunk, politically speaking."

The Dems are, to put it rather mildly, not exactly putting their best feet forward...

I agree, sadly. Each is like fingernails on chalkboard, although I've seen Pelosi, in an interview situation where she has time to converse, sound pretty good. In general, neither of them, nor any of the candidates very often, are able to articulate what ought to be pretty easy: that there is indeed danger from Islamic fundamentalists but the war in Iraq has done exactly the opposite of everything that needs to be done in response to that danger. And, on the rare occasions when one of them comes close, it seems to disappear without further notice.

Not only are the Dems irritating, I was just amused by a .. Republican campaign ad?!

Really funny. And much better than Hillary's Sopranos ad.

Maybe they are?

Doubtful, but possible.

Reid said the war was lost, and Pelosi led the bill opposing the surge.

I don't know what you mean by the term, and somehow think it's unlikely you'll tell me.
