Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

“Nancy Pelosi calls Tea Party ‘arsonists.’”

—Headline, San Francisco Chronicle, September 20, 2013.

“Pelosi’s message to grads: Be disruptors.”

—Headline, The Hill, today, which goes on to note, “‘Being called a disruptor is a high compliment,’ Pelosi said in prepared remarks Saturday. “You here at Berkeley are already disruptors in many ways.”

Shades of Bobby Kennedy in 1968 quoting original “Progressive” William Allen White in his speech to Kansas State University, and telling the students there, “If our colleges and universities do not breed men who riot, who rebel, who attack life with all the youthful vision and vigor, then there is something wrong with our colleges. The more riots that come on college campuses, the better world for tomorrow.”

Yeah, that advice worked out just swell for all concerned that year.
