Understanding Pelosi- The Prisoners Dilemma

Two major bonehead plays in the same year for the leader of the Democrat Party. Impeachment and now the Virus Economy Rescue Bill Delay.

Two . In the Same friggin Year. An Election Year.

Knowing something about advanced age and your reality sense, I believe I can see the reasons for a once savvy political operator standing up and delivering two political disasters in a row.

She is still savvy, but like many of us old folks, we have seen the stupid and know we are always beholden to someone who can pull our strings unless we are very exceptional, hiding on a desert island with a volleyball or so rich we are insulated from everything but the heat death of the universe.

Once we reach that awareness, a sense of playing the role sets in, a choice of either leaving the scene (if we are allowed to) or doing the bidding of those who can pull the strings. Many of us in that situation stay to keep things running despite the string pulling to disaster, hoping we can mitigate it, or at least preserve some pieces as the situation falls apart.

Rule one of Curmudgeonhood as a Geezer- Always assume that the powers that be are capable of incredibly stupid behavior and decisions.

Assume you are Pelosi. You had a good long run running phony populist politics and grafting a small fortune off the largess you helped ladle out. You are in your seventies and the last POTUS destroyed the bench strength of the party due to excessive narcissism and the fact that his handlers are now your handlers.

What I see is Pelosi (and Schumer) playing out the clock, knowing this is their last hurrah, doing the insane bidding of the new globalist handlers, but doing it in a way that is so outrageous and incompetent it blows up quickly and is proven to be a stupid, destructive idea.

They have their own wealth and are playing their part to avoid even worse destruction by actually carrying out either impeachment or economic ruin .

In a way, it is sort of heroic. Also , please remember both are probably highly personally compromised by said handlers and the compliant “Intelligence Community” just to keep them in line, compliant and silent.

Any other explanations?

Any?

  1. You got an em tag wild in your post.  It’s here:

    If you go into test and remove the <em>, it will fix the site.
    What's really strange is that it borks the site whether in post view or in main page view.  Ah, WOrdPress.
