(Newser) – Nancy Pelosi’s new book is titled Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters. But if its contents, and the Democrat’s actions, are any indication, America’s daughters mostly have the power to whine, Samantha Sault writes in the Weekly Standard. Amid “tiresome feminist complaining,” Pelosi sees oppression everywhere, committed by men unwilling to let women into their “Secret Sauce Club.”

“She encourages America's daughters to run for office and gain ‘many more seats at the table,’” Sault notes, “but why would they want to when they read her complaints?” Pelosi calls for bipartisanship and for listening to the will of the people, Sault notes, "unless of course the people support drilling for oil."
