Speaker Pelosi stated on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, “They’ve (republicans)  had plenty of opportunity to make their voices heard.”   “Bipartisanship is a two-way street.  A bill can be bipartisan without bipartisan votes.  Republicans have left their imprint.”   And Left is right, up is down, over is under.  Give me a break.  If that statement doesn’t qualify as Orwellian double-speak, I don’t know what does.

If you have not read the books, 1984 and Animal Farm, by George Orwell, I highly recommend them.  When you do, you’ll find that Nancy Pelosi is the pig Squealer.

Squealer is a small, white, fat porker who serves as Napoleon’s right hand pig and minister of propaganda. Squealer manipulates the language to excuse, justify, and extol all of Napoleon’s actions.  Squealer limits debate by complicating it and he confuses and disorients, making claims that the pigs need the extra luxury they are taking in order to function properly.  However, when questions persist, he usually uses the threat of the return of Mr Jones, the former owner of the farm, to justify the pigs’ privileges.  Squealer uses statistics to convince the animals that life is getting better and better.  Most of the animals have only dim memories of life before the revolution; therefore, they are convinced.  In the end, Squealer is the first pig to walk on his hind legs.

Figure out for yourselves which pig Zero most resembles.
