I know when a woman is elected to Congress, my first thought is always "Who's watching her children, then?"
Ok, it's not. And it shouldn't be. Which is why it's such a shock to hear Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi say something much similar to that in regards to Congresswoman-elect Kathy Hochul today.
Via The Washington Post:
Nancy Pelosi didn’t really say that, did she?
The Democratic House leader had a back to the 1950’s moment Thursday as she gushed over the special election win for a New York House seat by Democrat Kathy Hochul.
“She is a mom, two kids, two young children,” Pelosi said, then corrected herself. “Not young children — college age. To all the people out there who wonder who’s going to take care of her children — they’re college age.”
College age. Thank goodness! Otherwise we may have to send her back to New York to finish rearing them. Politics can wait!
