For John, BLUF: I will not comment on Ms Pelosi. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Using my search engine I don't see any main stream media talking about it, but apparently on HBO's Mill Maher show Real Time, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi commented on a possible Republican victory in the US Senate.
"It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate. Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate," Pelosi said, smiling.Civilization would be in jeopardy? Really?
It is possible she was trying to use humor to make a point. It is just that it was tacky. Take it from someone who has tried to be funny and failed. This was a bad joke, if it was, in fact, a joke.
On the other hand, she might really believe Republican control of the Senate would mean civilization being put into jeopardy.
