What Democrat would be crazy enough to challenge Nancy Pelosi on her home turf? Meet Stephen Jaffe

Stephen Jaffe entered the cafe with a small grin, a riotous print shirt and the blithe confidence of someone who doesn’t much care if people think he’s crazy.

The 71-year-old employment attorney, a political novice, was one of many Democrats swept up in the fist-shaking presidential crusade of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Thus inspired, he’s now fixed his sights on winning a seat in Congress.

But not just any seat.

He hopes to knock off Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker, the current Democratic minority leader and a political fixture in San Francisco for nigh on 50 years.

Not by portraying her the way a succession of failed Republican challengers have, as the lipsticked embodiment of the ludicrous left.

1. Go away, pal

Who in their right mind thinks getting rid of Nancy Pelosi would be a good thing for this country?

2. Jaffe is a jerk who was part of the bullshit lawsuit that California was not informing NPP voters

properly on the voting procedures. It was a garbage lawsuit, and rightfully got thrown out

California is one of the most flexible states for registration and ways to vote, whether by mail or in person, and instructions are clearly documented in the voters pamphlets, at the SOS website, and the places where people go register.

5. If he really wanted to do some good,

he would look for a local office, or a state office, and run. After gaining some experience, he might be able to hold another, higher office.

This is simply divisive BS. I wonder why. Oh, wait. I don't wonder at all.
