You would think after the Democrats’ resounding losses this election season, party members may have learned a thing or two about what voters want.
After all, Dems didn’t just lose the White House. Republicans maintained control of the House and Senate, and picked up governor and legislative seats in states around the nation.
A sane response from Democrats might be to admit a little introspection is in order.
But who said Democrats are sane?
“Kellyanne Conway, campaign chairman for President-elect Donald Trump, mocked the Democratic Party on Wednesday for its reelection of Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as House minority leader,” Western Journalism reported.
Pelosi won against challenger Rep. Tim Ryan from Ohio by a huge margin, 134 to 63. And it was his midwestern roots that led him to believe he could unseat Pelosi – a sort of out with the old, in with the new type of attitude that mirrored what voters around the nation seemed to be saying this election cycle.
But to Democrats, that message doesn’t sit well.
As Conway tweeted of Pelosi’s reelection: “What a relief. I was worried they had learned from the elections & might be competitive and cohesive again.”
Not to worry, it seems. Democrats are still the party of elite, entrenched and establishment, as Pelosi’s easy win indicates.
