Dim bulb Pelosi: Don't call pervert Filner my colleague

Pelosi and freindSomeone buy House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a dictionary so she can look up the word colleague. She can see for herself that it means “co-worker” or “associate,” not “friend,” as she seems to think.

All of which is by way of saying that San Diego mayor and admitted pervert Bob Filner and Pelosi are indeed former colleagues, whether she likes it or not.

She and Filner worked side-by-side for 10 years in Congress. The two of them worked together on numerous Democratic caucuses and were founding members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The fact that Filner is now being pressured to resign following a string of sexual harassment allegations doesn’t change the fact that he and Pelosi are ex-colleagues.

Yet during a roundtable with reporters on Thursday, Pelosi became agitated when one mentioned the Filner scandal. Pelosi snapped, “Don’t identify him as my former colleague.”

Maybe instead of trying to save the planet, the woman who at one time was two heartbeats away from the presidency should be trying to save the English language — by keeping quiet.
