Being a leftist in America means never needing to actually hear or grasp what conservatives believe. Many leftists, particularly soon-to-be Minority Leader Pelosi, live in a plastic bubble. Pelosi grew up as the daughter of a powerful Democrat, Thomas D'Alessandro, whose power base was Baltimore. In college, Pelosi interned for Democrat Senator Brewster. She met her husband, a native of San Francisco, and after a short stint in New York City, the two moved to Mr. Pelosi's home town, where they have lived for more than forty years.
Pelosi has been a Democrat operative from Northern California since 1976. How political has the Pelosi family been? Not only was her father a Democrat mayor and congressman, but one of her brothers, Thomas D'Alessandro III, was also mayor of Baltimore, and another of her brothers, Ronald Pelosi, was a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. The Pelosi family, for more than ninety years, has been inextricably connected to the Democrat Party. Consider, also, just where these Pelosi Democrats have lived and worked in politics. Baltimore, New York City, San Francisco -- three cities as thoroughly Democrat and profoundly leftist as any in America.Lots of those on the left can live for years before they actually are exposed to genuine conservatism....The left's plan for America has been remarkably simple: make sure that Americans hear only information which supports the left, hear only analysis which reinforces leftism, and receive only mass entertainment marinated in leftism.
But there are some Americans who can go through their lives without ever feeling the destructive idiocy of the left, without enduring or seeing a friend or relative endure the brutal bigotry of the left, and without stumbling across a vast quicksand of leftist mendacity. You spend your entire life in communities which are aberrations of Middle America. You live in Washington, among the most leftist polity in the Republic, for decades. You dwell in an America whose national media, until you are well into middle age, is a monolith of ideological purity which only reinforces your prejudices. Living such a surreal life, a woman like Nancy Pelosi can actually find herself to the left of Barack Obama. But that is where she is, this Girl in the Plastic Bubble.
