You know the Democrat congressional leadership has become toxic for the party’s candidates when “hey, maybe she’ll die” becomes an answer given to a question about whether or not a candidate will support Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
An offhand joke by conservative Democratic Blue Dog Rep. Bobby Bright during an appearance in Alabama has turned into a major headache for the congressman thanks in large part to the conservative and highly-trafficked Drudge Report, which is featuring his comment. …
Bright was appearing in Montgomery yesterday when he was apparently asked whether he would support Nancy Pelosi as House speaker if reelected, the Montgomery Advertiser reported.
After listing a number of things that could happen between now and that vote that could make the question moot, “he suggested, jokingly he insisted to his audience, that Pelosi could fall ill and die in coming months,” according to the newspaper.
You can’t make this stuff up.
