From Roll Call:
You gotta blame somebody when your party loses the White House, the Senate and the House. So why not blame the Catholics?
That’s sort of what House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) did in a letter sent this week to major donors to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee….In the second paragraph of the letter, Pelosi said the election outcome showed a distinct pattern — that “the Democratic message was eclipsed by so-called values pronouncements.”
“As a devout Catholic, I observe with great regret the intervention of some Catholic bishops who joined evangelical leaders in the political arena,” Pelosi said. She said the bishops’ actions helped to blur the separation of church and state, “and that is wrong.”
