Pelosi: Wicked Witch of the West
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, November 18, 2006

I've never been a fan of Mort Kondracke and I'm even less of one now:
Fox News host Mort Kondracke, the “left-leaning” counterpart to Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes on Fox News’ The Beltway Boys, said last night that incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be nicknamed the “Wicked Witch of the West.”

According to Kondracke, Pelosi has already been pressuring fellow Democrats, “twisting arms and making — you know, having her aides making threats, and stuff like that.” Asked by Brit Hume if that was really happening, Kondracke said, “Supposedly.”

[...]

Full transcript:

KONDRACKE: So the history on House leadership is, we had “The Hammer, Tom DeLay, and now we have the “Wicked Witch of the West,” you know, Nancy Pelosi, who is twisting arms and making — you know, having her aides making threats, and stuff like that.

HUME: But was that really happening?

KONDRACKE: Supposedly. That’s, that’s — it got heavily reported, and I have heard no contradictions of that.
That's just stupid. Look I don't care for Nancy Pelosi's politics at all, but when she does what every other incoming Speaker of the House does, she's a "witch?"

Hey Mort, I thought we'd all gotten past those sorts of characterizations.

No?

Well here's one for you.

Idiot.

Does she cast spells, she COULD be a witch! Kondracke could have meant this as a statement of fact or as a compliment, if he likes Wiccans.

I think you are too hard on Morton Kondracke, myself...

Let’s be honest here. There’s still a segment of society that views tough men as, well, tough, strong, etc., and strong women as "bwitches". Mort undermined his own point by recalling Delay’s nickname, "the Hammer." That might have some negative connotations but does "the Wicked Witch" have any positive ones?

And to think I thought we all settled on "Botox Queen" - heh.

Who cares whether she casts spells? What I want to know is - does she weigh as much as a duck?

Well if he’d been turned into the OTHER Newt, no need for a cure.

Oh well.

How fast can her face scare off a swallow?

Maybe Mort’s right for the wrong reason. I know that I’ve been yelling at my television whenever she’s talking about the war.

Some of those exclamations sound like "witch."

I think "wicked witch of the west" is pretty clever considering she’s from the west coast. Sounds like he was trying to be funny to me.

You overreacting maybe?

"Supposedly. That’s, that’s - it got heavily reported, and I have heard no contradictions of that"

So all it takes to be a highly paid and well respected journalist in Wash. DC is to be able to repeat what other highly paid and well respected journalists publish? Let that be a lesson to all you pajama-clad bloggers; buy a suit.

I don’t know.

Wait.

Waauughh!!!






And McQ, I get you’re tired of the characterisations, but it’s not like they’re farfetched.

Sorry Jon, but Inigo Montoya called and wants his shtick back—

It didn’t get past me Tom. That would be inconceivable.
