What do House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s grandchildren call her? Just “grandparent?”

For that matter, does she call them “grandchildren?” No “grandson” or “granddaughter?” For that matter, how does the rest of the Democratic caucus in the House of Representatives in the upcoming 117th Congress address their mothers, sons, daughters, fathers — I’d like a full countdown.

In fact, I want recordings. I want a one-hour deposition in which House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer talks about his three daughters without calling them his daughters. Or girls, or women, or “members of the distaff gender” or anything else. Nothing like that. I want receipts, dagnabbit.

Because as they say — if it’s good enough for Congress, it’s good enough for us.

On Friday, Speaker Pelosi, along with House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, revealed the proposed rules package for the incoming House. The media release announcing it is a predictable mishmash of Washingtonian nothingness.
