Sarah Palin Ridicules Nancy Pelosi

We told you here previously about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s visit to a Border Patrol facility in Brownsville, Texas. Pelosi tossed some blame at House Speaker John Boehner for what she saw as the impending demise of any hope of immigration reform in the U.S. anytime soon.

“A few days ago I would have been more optimistic about comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi said. “I thought that we had been finding a way because we have been very patient and respectful of [House Majority Leader John Boehner] trying to do it one way or another.”

“I don’t think he gives us much reason to be hopeful now, but we never give up. There’s still the month of July,” she added.

Hot on the heels of that visit, Sarah Palin has weighed in on Pelosi’s headlines. She particularly takes umbrage with Pelosi’s statement that “every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect” because we are “all God’s children.”

Palin, invoking her authoritative stance as a “monkey’s uncle,” tied this statement in with Pelosi’s stance on abortion. On her Facebook page, she wrote:

How sincere is this politician’s concern? Never seen as a pro-child/pro-life advocate with respect for that sacred “spark of divinity” in every innocent human life in the womb, Ms. Pelosi often touts her Catholic faith but overlooks this doctrine her Church has preached for 2000 years. Hopefully she’s changed her tune on the issue of life – in which case, I’m sure she’ll invite those who understand the impact a culture of life can have on America to use her new, refreshing advocacy statement.

Her words yesterday are the foundational pro-life message that can educate those in her party who constantly claim to be “for the children” in one breath, but in their next breath advocate snuffing out the life of innocent children soon-to-be-born. Cynics (or those of us living in reality) recognize typical liberal hypocrisy here, but then again we can hope this is revelation of a profound Pelosi political conversion! Though I won’t hold my breath.

So far, no word from the Pelosi camp about a response to Sarah Palin.

    Here we go again–Palin and all her publicity agents and ghost writers have come up with another target/news event to get her name in the news. Grow up, Sarah, take one issue at a time instead of choosing a different fight every day. The issue at hand is immigration–stop trying to get yourself attention by tossing abortion into the discussion and being a judge about who is sincere and who is not. Palin’s constant bickering with anything that the Democrats say shows how non-Christian like her beliefs really are–just another message of controversy and hate from the Palin camp. Not a big fan of Pelosi–but at lease she holds a position of authority and sees a problem and offers suggestions. Palin is the armchair quarterback, has never seen a problem that she couldn’t mimic what Rush Limbaugh has already said on his show, and then she pretends she knows all the answers.

    The reason this problem has occurred is that Obama and the D’s in congress have sent a clear message of a path to amnesty and a clear message that they will not make borders secure. For Pelosi to cynically attempt to use these kids for her party’s political purpose is crass and without principle. Palin simply points out that Pelosi’s cynical caring stance here is at odds with her support of killing 55m babies with abortion since 1973.

    Would Palin call Gingrich’s (a Catholic) support of the death penalty “typical conservative hypocrisy”? I doubt it. Truth is, we all pick and choose which parts of our religion we support and how much. Many Catholics supported and fought in the Iraq War, although the Vatican condemned it. Would Palin call that hypocritical? I doubt it. Some Catholics disagreed with the Pope and felt that it did conform to the “just war” Catholic doctrine; others may have even felt it constituted murders as self-defense (which is permitted in Catholicism); others may have not been sure if it went against their religion, but felt that it was their duty as Americans to support or fight in it.
