Nancy Pelosi announces re-election bid, bashes Tea Party as 'anti-science'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she will be running again in 2014, claiming that she has "already started the paperwork process," and declared in an email, as reported at the Hill, that her "work is not finished."

Pelosi, who tweeted Thursday that she sat down with the Huffington Post's Laura Basset to discuss the "GOP's extreme attacks on women's rights," will likely be continuing the trend of bashing Republicans as her main campaign strategy.

As far as trashing her opponents, Pelosi has a particular disdain for Tea Party republicans.

In fact, on Tuesday, Pelosi told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren that the Republican party

"...is being driven by an ideological extreme sect within the party that is anti-government. They wanted to shut it down."

Van Susteren, thankfully, pushed back on the stupid statement, which has also been made by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, as reported at the Examiner.

Van Susteren asked, "Anti or limited government?"

Pelosi responded,

"Well, they shut it down. They are anti-government, anti-science so any of the initiatives about science and anti-Obama. So it's a trifecta that they have -- I'm not painting everyone with that brush. I'm saying that the Republicans as a grand ole party should take back their party through the force that they have been, and really dominate the debate but not cut off the debate."

In November, Pelosi said that Democrats would be running on Obamacare. NBC quoted the House Minority Leader as saying,

"Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act..."

It will be interesting to see how much she touts Obamacare during her campaign.
