Nancy Pelosi Talks to a Psychiatrist

A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi happened to appear.  Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.


“Would you mind telling me, Doctor,” she asked, “how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?”

“Nothing is easier,” he replied. “You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track.”

“What sort of question?” asked Pelosi.

“Well, you might ask, ‘Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?”

Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, “You wouldn’t happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don’t know much about history.”


  1. Usually, “a noted psychiatrist” and “an academic function” rather than a specific person and a specific function by name indicate that this is typical made up bullshit about politicians targeted for the dishonest attacks.

    Can’t we bring up an actual statement she made or an actual position she holds? I’m sure there are real things she’s doing that you disagree with. Let’s talk about those things.

  2. very funny story. The picture with the “deer caught in the headlights” look makes it even more funny.
