Christine Pelosi, activist and daughter of that Pelosi, responded to a major offshore earthquake with the sophistication and nuance you would expect from a San Francisco Democrat:
While Pelosi and her ilk flatter themselves as the “reality-based community,” they regularly hold science in contempt, especially on environmental issues. Tying fracking to yesterday’s quake is as silly as blaming second-hand smoke, chemtrails or a vengeful Poseidon. Add in their global warming fear-mongering, and lefties are as superstitious as medieval villagers.
Pelosi the Lesser tried to backtrack a bit, saying she didn’t technically blame the quake on fracking, but why link the two if they’re unrelated? If Michelle Bachmann tweeted, “BREAKING: 6.9 earthquake off N. CA coast. Another reason I oppose gay marriage/gun registration/estate taxes,” she would be ridiculed, and rightly so.
In a rational political world, I could excuse Pelosi’s lapse in scientific knowledge. But these are the little idiocies that daily destroy jobs, energy independence and our economy. It's long past time to push back against these costly liberal myths.
