At The American Spectator, Dov Fischer suggests that Nancy Pelosi will be the first Speaker of the House to lose control of the chamber twice. Fischer explains that Pelosi’s failure to quickly move the impeachment to the Senate has depleted what little reserves of political capital she maintained. With even close allies like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA) publicly questioning Pelosi’s methods, it appears the Speaker is done for. Fischer writes (abridged):
The only people who abused power during the Silly Season of Ukraine were Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi.
And once the House passed the Stillborn Impeachment, it devolved on Pelosi to submit it to the Senate for a quick and merciful funeral and interment. But she would not do it, obstructing the unilateral will of the Democrat House and obstructing the work of the Senate.
In other words, the Honorable Dowager who represents a district composed almost exclusively of The Billionaires and The Homeless is the one who obstructed Congress those are not grounds for impeachment.
So Pelosi lost. Really bad. The foundation cracked all around her. It was as though Sen. Dorothy Gale of Kansas had tossed a bucket of water on her. One by one, Democrat senators went on TV talk shows to tell Pelosi to send over the danged articles already. Even her own mirror image — 86-year-old San Franciscan Dianne Feinstein — said it was time to give up the ghost.
How will Nancy Pelosi be remembered in history? Has any other Speaker of the House ever before lost the House majority and the Speakership twice?
Nope. Just stay out of the way as the shards from the glass ceiling rain down upon her when she gets ousted again from the Speakership — this time for life.
