Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demonstrated that she still has a flair for thoroughly pointless grandstanding despite the fact that she can't complete two sentences in a row without stumbling all over herself.Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-Calif.) unloaded on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday, accusing the Kentucky Republican of effectively turning the upper chamber into a legislative "graveyard."
The House Democratic leader at her weekly news conference unveiled a poster covered with headstones representing various bills and pieces of legislation that have become stalled in the Senate.
"Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the 'Grim Reaper,' it's part of his political campaign," Pelosi said at the press conference. "It's part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate."
"None of these things are going to pass," she continued. "They're not even going to be voted on."
Oh no! Not a poster!
Pelosi laments that McConnell's Senate won't vote on a smorgasbord of far-left bills that have emerged from the new House Democratic/Progressive majority fever-dream.
Full disclosure: I'm a big fan of Congress not doing anything. Yes, we're paying them to be there but the best way to keep from being completely fleeced is to make sure they "help" as little as possible.
All of the legislation that McConnell isn't entertaining was created only to give the leftmedia talking points. The Democrats knew that a Republican Senate wasn't going to dignify the progressive nonsense with serious consideration. This is how bicameral legislatures ruled by opposing parties work.

McConnell discovered a spine that he hadn't previously possessed."
