Note to Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.  5/4/17 Los Angeles Times:
[Jaffee] hopes to knock off Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker, the current Democratic minority leader and a political fixture in San Francisco for nigh on 50 years.
Not by portraying her the way a succession of failed Republican challengers have, as the lipsticked embodiment of the ludicrous left.
Rather, Jaffe suggests Pelosi is not liberal enough or, for that matter, even a true liberal, a proposition that would be dismissed as outlandish anywhere other than San Francisco.
Here, the political spectrum pretty much runs along a sliver of bandwidth from left to far left to kerplop!, off the continent’s edge into the Pacific Ocean.
Indeed.  Anywhere but San Francisco, this would be laughable.  But Babylon-by-the-Sea is proof that Californians have a constitutional right to be untethered from reality.
