Nancy Pelosi yesterday at a press conference to talk about fiscal cliff negotiations.
PELOSI: Is there not an appreciation for the Jewish holidays, the Christmas holidays, Kwanzaa, all the other things that families come together around. Bonding rituals important to the strength of our society. Do we not care about that? Well, the American people do, and they want to shop for it.
RUSH: Now, you might be saying, “What the hell is that about?” That’s why I’m here, to tell you. What Nancy Pelosi is saying is that the Republicans are ruining Kwanzaa shopping with the fiscal cliff delay. The Republicans are destroying the Jewish holidays, the Christmas holiday, and Kwanzaa, all the things that families come together around, bonding rituals important to the strength of our society, Republicans don’t care about that. But the American people do. And they want to shop for it. They want to go shopping. The American people want to go shopping, Rachel, but because the Republicans are playing hardball on the fiscal cliff, Kwanzaa shoppers are so depressed that they’re not shopping for Kwanzaa. Jewish Americans are not shopping during this season, because the Republicans are playing hardball the fiscal cliff.
