Pelosi Goes Nuts on the “Rich”
What more do they want? They got a number of homes, the bigger the yachts, the taller the mast, the whole thing — she’s talking, I don’t know whether she knows it or not, about Democrats. Now, her husband’s very wealthy, so Pelosi by virtue of marriage is very wealthy. But this largest mast business, I’m probably gonna get myself into trouble here. I don’t know if this is still true, but there’s an author out there by the name of Michael Lewis, and he wrote a book called The New New Thing. It was the story of Jim Clark who founded Netscape, which no longer exists. I read the book and I’ve met Jim Clark. He lives here. I was at a dinner once with Jim Clark where he almost left. He said, “I can’t believe I’m in the same room with Rush Limbaugh.”
This book was about Jim Clark building the biggest sailboat in the world, with all of his wealth from Netscape, and about the trials and tribulations of building this sailboat and the limitations of where it could go because the mast is so high, and some bridges, of course, are not high enough for the mast. The thing apparently is huge, took years, they had problems with all the electronics on board this sailboat. Pelosi is talking about, at least at the time, a Democrat. A Democrat had the largest sailboat in the country. And I don’t know if he still has the largest sailboat or somebody’s built one bigger or not. Then this business of they want immortality, so much money that their names for prestige they could never get any other way, they’re buying — what is she talking about? Putting your name on the wing of a hospital, for example, donating to a hospital and getting your name on a wing, that’s the kind of stuff she’s talking about.
