Rep. Nancy Pelosi Reclaims House Speakership

The Democrats just can’t shake their ultra-wealthy septuagenarian leadership despite their constant drumbeat that they’re the part of the young and downtrodden.

On Thursday, Rep. Yzma…er Nancy Pelosi (D – Ca.), 78, expectedly reclaimed the House speakership that she ignominiously lost to Republicans following the disastrous 2010 midterms.

She’s the first Speaker of the House since Rep. Sam Rayburn more than 60 years ago to reclaim the mantle after she led the House Democrats to ruin for much of the 2010s. She’s also tied Rayburn to be the oldest person ever elected Speaker and the oldest to hold it.
