Nancy Pelosi Running for Minority Leader

Rep. Nancy Pelosi's team has been relegated to the minor leagues -- but she still wants to be the manager. In an announcement made via her Twitter account, the Speaker of the House announced she will be running for Democratic Minority Leader.

Win or lose, it seems @SpeakerPelosi will be needing a new Twitter handle by the end of the year.

This announcement at least temporarily abates the notion of a game of political musical chairs, in which Pelosi would resign, opening a mad dash for her seat -- and a mad dash for the vacated seats of lesser politicians.

But, should she lose in her quest to hold onto the reins of power -- who knows what comes next? Start the music.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
