But...but...sexism and stuff!!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Earlier, we informed you that any and all criticism of Nancy Pelosi is sexist.  Now, now.  Don't try to argue that she's and incompetent crackpot who's become a liability to her party. It's sexism.  Nothing else.

Unfortunately, it appears a good chunk of the Democratic Party is sexist - because the calls for Pelosi to take a hike are getting louder.

As the New York Times wrote yesterday:

A senior House Democrat said Thursday that it’s time for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and two top lieutenants to prepare to step down and make way for the next generation of lawmakers in her caucus.

The comments by Rep. Linda T. Sánchez (Calif.), who as vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus ranks fifth in the 194-member body, are the most explicit by a senior congressional Democrat and a member of the California congressional delegation about Pelosi’s political future.

Pelosi, 77, has served in Congress since 1987 and has led House Democrats for 14 years. She served as House speaker from 2007 to 2011 and has remained as minority leader since Democrats lost control of the chamber. In recent weeks she has emerged as an unlikely partner of President Trump in negotiations over spending bills and the future of immigration policy.

But Pelosi faced a stronger-than-anticipated challenge to her leadership post last fall after Democrats failed again to take back the House. Sixty-three members of her caucus voted instead for Rep. Tim Ryan (Ohio), who had mounted an upstart bid to unseat her just a few days before. In the months since, Pelosi has created new leadership positions for younger and newer lawmakers in a bid to address concerns that there are few opportunities for advancement as long as Democrats remain mired in the minority.

Tsk-tsk.  Since we know there are no legitimate reasons to attack the former Speaker, this can only mean the Dems operate in a bastion of rampant sexism.  How very unpleasant.

According to MSNBC, this represents an 'long simmering and very ugly divide' within the Democrat caucus - presumably between the sexist and non-sexist sides:

Note that they're also concerned about her age, so I guess we can add ageism to their list of anti-Pelosi "isms."
