Well, it’s the end of a long, ghoulish era. Nancy Pelosi has finally stepped down and advised that she will not seek any “leadership role” within the Democrat Party after the Dems lost their bid to hold on to the House. Nancy had told everyone that Dems would keep the House. She was sure of it, Joe too. But what they didn’t expect was that Republicans would aggressively ballot harvest and “cure” ballots in New York and California, which is what ultimately gave us the House win. So, now Nancy is out of a job. Thank God. I never thought I’d see this day.
Here’s what Pelosi said: “I will not seek re-election to democratic leadership in the next congress. For me, the hour has come for a new generation to lead the democratic caucus that I so deeply respect.”

By the way, it’s “Democrat Party,” not “Democratic.” Please, enough with this fake love of “democracy.” I can’t stand it.
So, if you’ve been following along with this Pelosi/House/Career story, we told you a while back that Pelosi would not seek a leadership role once the GOP took over the House. But we also said that she wouldn’t finish her term, and that she has another plan cooking on the stove, and we’ll likely see that unfold over the next several months.
Her local paper has been talking about this for a while.
SF Gate reported that if Pelosi goes the way of former House Speaker John Boehner, Ryan’s predecessor, and retires early enough in her term, a special election will be called to fill Pelosi’s San Francisco congressional district. Special elections are typically of the lower turnout variety where only the most politically engaged participate — but California’s new universal vote-by-mail rules could change that.
There has been persistent chatter in Democratic circles that Pelosi’s daughter Christine, who is a California Democratic Party delegate, could seek that seat, as could state Sen. Scott Wiener, another favorite of Democratic establishment types.
The likely person who would take her seat, if you ask me, would be her daughter, because Nancy runs everything in San Fran, and if she wants her legacy to continue, her legacy will continue.
So, I feel like this is how it’s going to play out, and Nancy herself is even giving off clues of what’s coming.
The Hill reported back on November 7th, just a day before the election that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a new interview said the attack on her husband, Paul Pelosi, will affect the decision she makes of whether to retire from Congress should Democrats lose control of the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
“I have to say my decision will be affected about what happened the last week or two,” Pelosi told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in her first sit-down interview since the attack on her husband.
Pressed further on if her decision will be impacted by the attack, Pelosi told Cooper “yes.”
Pelosi’s full interview with CNN is scheduled to air at 8 p.m. on “AC360.”
Pelosi’s comments come less than two weeks after her husband, 82, was injured during a break-in at the couple’s San Francisco home. Authorities allege that David DePape, 42, broke into the residence through a glass door in the early hours of Oct. 28, threatened to hold the Speaker hostage and hit Paul Pelosi over the head with a hammer. The Nancy Pelosi was in Washington, D.C., at the time.
They also come just before the midterm elections, when Republicans are favored to take control of the House — an outcome that would put an end to Pelosi’s tenure as Speaker and raise questions as to whether the longtime leader of the House Democratic Caucus will retire.
Personally, I believe one of the reasons Pelosi is trying to get out of dodge as quickly as she possibly can is because she doesn’t want to be anywhere near DC when the GOP starts looking into her role in the January 6th events.
Because we all know Pelosi had a lot more to do with what happened than we’re being told.
