Nancy Pelosi, The Nation’s Flower Girl

December 3, 2009

 

I think that the best segment by far on “The O’Reilly Factor” belongs to the political comedian Dennis Miller.  He deserves more than the 3 or 4 minutes a week of air time that O’Reilly gives him.

Last night, for example, Miller captured President Obama’s West Point speech perfectly.  Referring to Obama’s rhetorical flourishes covering his plan to start withdrawing troops by mid-2011, Miller said that Obama was throwing in an “embroidered” towel.   And Miller said that he thought he saw the White House party crashers in the West Point audience dressed as cadets.

But perhaps his best line was reserved for the self-important Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who never saw a redistributionist tax that she did not like.  This pompous spendthrift spent roughly $3,000 of taxpayers’ money on flowers alone for her office between June and October of this year.  Miller joked that the flowers should be used to adorn her political grave.

Apparently, the 17 percent of Americans who are currently either out of work altogether or who are under-employed are supposed to feel better that their House Speaker’s office is bedecked in flowers.  At least there are florists in Washington, D.C. who will remain fully employed as long as Pelosi remains the Speaker.

Remember that this is the same lady who likes to fly around in her own tax-payer funded version of Air Force One.   She has taken a step up from being merely the run-of-the-mill Limousine Liberal.

What will be next?  Expensive wines, bought with taxpayers’ money from the California winery that she and her husband own, to toast Obamacare?

    Worst part is that the flowers were largely for the Kennedy funeral. I am unhinged thinking that my tax dollars are going to make a gesture on behalf of the Speaker. She needs to cut her own check dammit.
    If these elites can’t see the hypocrasy of spending millions on their discretionary office budgets while we all toil out here in the real world, then it’s far worse than I feared. Can’t someone just whack her with a stick?

      Pelosi is the typical San Francisco millionaire. She, and her husband, rake is millions on the backs of the peons who keep electing her. then, speaking through her plastic face, talks of “redistributing the wealth.” Of course, just like her health care package, her personal wealth is exempt.

      Medicare? She is exempt. We pay her health care for life…free to her.

    Please don’t put her picture up there at the top of the article – it scared me when I opened the site today…

    Where are the guillotines,indeed. I was a builder and carpenter’s apprentice before our whole shop closed down this year. I’d be happy to help build a few ( gallows too)!

    Dennis Miller for PRESIDENT … he’d get my vote!

    When politicians are blithering idiots, they should listen to some of the blogs. Blogs tell what people really think. Hence, I offer this to youse’:

    I think Madame Speaker , sorry – it’s “MAAM” Pelosi as of late, looks and acts like a small Chiu-wawa whenever she is on camera. She prances around on her little back paws with that grin…do you know what I mean? That fake phony smile…looks like a Taco Bell Chiwawaua or some such…yes?

      Miller deserves his own show on fox. A natural replacement for the Huckster, who will be exiting soon.

        You might be right. I look for Lou Dobbs to surface somewhere, too. Huck reminds me of those old 50’s family shows.

        HOW TIMELY!

        BASHING HUCKABEE just like PALIN as soon as the polls show he is ahead of ALL conservatives for 2012 run for POTUS.

        I hope HUCKABEE will not be leaving FOX because of the lies the media has spread about commuting the murderer of the policemen? To know the whole story of how AK laws work, is to know the many layers of how and why he did what he did. Just research to get the facts before ‘assuming’ anything, OK?

    Thanks to a great system of laws & hundreds of years of civil transfer of government, we don’t guillotine the uppity, disdaining, corrupt, “let-them-eat-cake” elected officials – but we sure as anything can VOTE ‘EM OUT! It would be hard to find anyone in the Congress as worthy of being ousted on her keester than Would-Be Empress Pelosi.

    But in all our talk about how rotten & ineffective our various elected officials are, we MUST NEVER FORGET that it is “we the People” & our “Fellow Americans” who vote these people in. Our side must work harder to educate people, put up good candidates, monitor elections to prevent voter fraud & election theft & then monitor actions once they are in office. Yes, Pelosi is awful, but voters put her there & have allowed her to stay. She and many other self-serving fools, ignoramuses, liars and cheats up for re- election in just a few short months can be reckoned with at the polls.

    Meanwhile we must keep her atrocious behavior right before the people with lots of humor & deserved ridicule. Let’s keep You-Tube extra busy with Empress Pelosi footage & comments.

      Pelosi is a “Frisco” democrat. Immune to defeat. One look at the politics of her electorate will show that she is elected by her wealthy peers and is insulated from criticism. The only hope is to defeat San Francisco at other districts around the country. The Inland Empire of California hates her as much as anybody else does.

    I believe Nancy has been unfairly labeled. As a woman. Nobody is really sure, are they? We keep referring to the Speaker as “she” or “her”. Might I suggest “it” perhaps? Calling Nancy a woman is like, well, calling Barney Frank a man. Similar to the deliberating jury on anthropogenic global warming, it’s still out. Capital Hill has become somewhat of a Pelosi playground of sorts. Well, as an American taxpayer responsible for funding the freshly cut flowers that so beautifully adorn your office each day, let me suggest your next arrangement be filled with “forget-me-nots”.

    Oh, Nance, you will never be forgotten…

      Well said, Nathan!
      Perhaps the bouquets for Pelosi’s office should also contain “NARCISSUS”?
      It should be a permanent arrangement of dried flowers that lasts until at least next year…
      And in that bouquet of ‘preserved’ Forget Me Nots and Narcissus should be plenty of thorny old dead and dried black roses, to remind her of who she REALLY is and WHAT we actually think of her? LOL

      Indeed, “well said!” Now that you mention it, she bears a startling resemblance to some of the characters on “V”! Autobiographical?

    I agree! Miller is frequently brilliant and always entertaining.

    I thought Miller used to have a show? Can’t remember on what channel, or why it was dropped. I agree, get rid of Huck and Shep,Geraldo too, put in Miller and Dobbs.

    What is the name of the wine produced by the Pelosi owned winery? I might be buying it in error.

      I’m sure the aroma would reveal it’s maker.
