Nancy Pelosi channels Richard Nixon by way of Dan Aykroyd

“Pelosi ‘Swears’ Spirit of Susan B. Anthony Spoke to Her in White House,” CNS News reports:

Pelosi says, “He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going on–which is correct. But, as he was saying this, he was fading and this other thing was happening to me.”

“My chair was getting crowded in,” said Pelosi. “I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since.”

“My chair was getting crowded in and I couldn’t figure out what it was, it was like this,” she said.

“And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were,” said Pelosi. “More than I named and I could hear them say: ‘At last we have a seat at the table.’ And then they were gone.”

This was not the only time Pelosi has told this story. On June 6 of this year she told it during an event celebrating her 25 years of political service.

There’s a video clip of Pelosi’s flashbacks at the above CNS link. If you can’t make out what she’s saying, we’ve found this to be the best transcript of her ramblings.
