What an oily, condescending, manipulative, lying piece of work she is. Referring to the HCR bill, Pelosi says:
It’s like the back of the refrigerator. You see all these wires and the rest. All you need to know is, you open the door. The light goes on.
I don’t mean to be anti-female, but Pelosi’s suggestion strikes me as something only a woman could have come up with. I have that attitude myself to most mechanical and/or electrical gadgetry and appliances, including computers: don’t tell me how it works, just make it work.
But for a supposed servant of the people to use such a metaphor to refer to a bill that affects us all in such important ways is outrageously and offensively paternalistic (or should I say “maternalistic?”) and flies in the face of what the relationship between the citizens and Congress in this country is meant to be.
