Playing gender politics when it suits them, then...
Tim Bishop and Nancy Pelosi need to start answering for their own hypocrisy in playing gender politics when it suits them, then remaining silent when members of their own party seek political redemption after waging an actual war on women. With Pelosi in town to help the endangered Bishop, now is the time for them to start explaining themselves.
In case you missed it, Nancy Pelosi is holding a swanky fundraiser in the Hamptons for endangered Democratic Congressman Tim Bishop.
According to Patch.com, "Tickets are $500 each, and can be purchased online. There are also special packages available. The 'Star Fish' includes two tickets and a special photograph for $2,000. The 'Sea Serpent' includes six tickets, a special photograph, and co-host acknowledgement for $2,500.'"
Not included on the money menu, however, are photographs with notorious New York Democrats like Anthony Weiner (a.k.a. Carlos Danger), Eliot Spitzer, and Vito Lopez.
But while Pelosi and Bishop would love to see those names swept under the rug while they dine on Joy Behar's famous Lasagna, it's time that they start answering for their own hypocrisy ' playing gender politics while members of their own party seek political office despite waging an actual war on women.
