Dem Candidate Urges Pelosi to Step Aside

Brett Carter, the Democrat nominee to fill the 6th District seat in Tennessee for the ougoing Bart Gordon — a seat once held by Al Gore — is trying to fulfill his lifelong dream of waking up next to the severed head of a horse.

From Fox News:

Imperiled candidate Brett Carter, who’s running for Congress in a conservative district in Tennessee, sent a letter to the California Democrat Thursday urging her to publicly announce that she will not seek the speakership next year.

Carter, according to a copy of the letter posted online, bluntly explained that the voters of the 6th Congressional District in Tennessee just don’t like her and that she should step aside so Republicans can stop using her leadership as ammo against Democrats.

“Let me explain my perspective. Voters in my district believe that you do not represent their values,” he said, citing a column in a local newspaper that called Pelosi an “unshakable albatross” dragging down his otherwise strong candidacy.

Here’s a copy of the letter (he’s a little more tactful than Bobby Bright). This guy’s just begging for a gavel to the groin, isn’t he?

The “Pelosi flight” continues. Jump on the bus — you’ll be safe there, Mr. Carter. But keep in mind that “Pelosi’s leadership” isn’t the ammo being used against the Democrats — the Democrats are. Nancy Pelosi would have been irrelevant without a House full of willing accomplices. This isn’t just about whose idea it was to rob the bank, but also who drove the getaway car.

I don’t know about everybody else, but even if Pelosi were to retire her gavel today, “Speaker Steny Hoyer” doesn’t exactly sap my motivation to vote the bums out in November.
