Remember Nancy Pelosi said recently, “As a Catholic, I resent your using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone…I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love, and always pray for the president. And I still pray for the president. I pray for the president all the time. So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”
I suspect we’ve reached a tipping point. I believe there might just be a great fatigue from all this hate, anger, and vitriol emanating from the capitol. I think people are tired. I mean, the normal people for whom politics take up a small percentage of their lives. The people who worry about their kids in school, work every day, pay bills, and don’t spend four hours on Twitter.
I think we’re ready for a little more respect in our public conversation. I suspect we’re ready for a little love. I hope I’m not wrong.
