Nancy Pelosi Election Results: Are Comics Partly to Blame for Her Unpopularity?Lulu and Moxleys Mom
The California 2010 election results certainly reflected poorly on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who will lose that powerful seat when the Republicans take over the House in January. So many politicians fly under the radar of the Americans they serve. (Just watch Jay Leno’s “Jay Walking” segment!) But thanks to being the butt of many jokes and spoofs, mother of five Nancy Pelosi makes an impression. Often a bad one. Whether you agree with her policies or not, it’s hard to take seriously a woman routinely ridiculed on national television. I wonder if that constant bashing (funny as it can be) contributes to her horrific unpopularity, even sometimes among her own party. Of course, I’m not saying she doesn’t contribute to her own abysmal approval numbers. Take a look at this snippet from a Jay Leno monologue next and see what I mean.
