When the news is grim, it's nice to know that we can always count on Nancy Pelosi to give us a laugh. Granted, it's the kind of nerve-shredding laugh that the demented Renfield cackled in "Dracula" while raving about eating spiders and flies, but still - we'll take levity where we find it.
In this case, Nancy (who is at least as nuts as Renfield was) appeared on the Bill Maher show to talk about the ass-kicking her party expects in the upcoming midterms. According to Ms. Pelosi, highly satisfied Democrats won't come to the polls because "fear is a motivator and we are not fear-mongers. The Democrats are messengers of hope."
So, what was her non-fear-mongering hope-filled message for Maher's audience? “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.” Yikes!
Indeed, the seven signs of the Democrat Apocalypse will be upon us: Bills would actually get debated in the Senate, budgets would be written again, the worst parts of Obamacare could be repealed, meaningful immigration reform could take place, full investigations of scandals like Benghazi and the IRS would finally happen, the abuse of presidential "privilege" could be checked, and Harry Reid would have to go back to sleeping in an earth-filled coffin during daylight hours.
In other words, it will be Civilization as we'd like to know it again.
In case you were wondering what made us think about Renfield...
