The Detestable Nancy Pelosi.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:58 pm

Nancy Pelosi, who today won reelection to the position of Speaker of the House (a real shocker, that), took time from slobbering over The One to reach across the aisle and punch House Republicans in their collective stindeens. Ms. Pelosi, at a time when the approval rating of the Congress is rivaled only by that of, well, Charles Manson, vowed to change the House Rules in order to effectively render House Republicans about as influential as the House hat rack.

Madam Speaker proposes to undo reforms that were put in place by Republicans following their landslide victory in 1994.

[The] reforms to the House Rules as part of the Contract with America were designed to open up to public scrutiny what had become under this decades-long Democrat majority a dangerously secretive House legislative process. The Republican reform of the way the House did business included opening committee meetings to the public and media, making Congress actually subject to federal law, term limits for committee chairmen ending decades-long committee fiefdoms, truth in budgeting, elimination of the committee proxy vote, authorization of a House audit, specific requirements for blanket rules waivers, and guarantees to the then-Democrat minority party to offer amendments to pieces of legislation.

Memo to Madam Speaker: May I remind you that you are not Queen Nancy and that more than 58 million of us did not vote for the Democrat party in 2008, and we are not amused? In fact, we are tempted to urge our representatives to vote “present” on all proposed legislation for the next two years, so that you won’t be able to blame the impending national mess on Republicans (much as you had the stones to blame the current financial crisis on George Bush, rather than you pals Barney and Chris). We can only hope that there will be something left of the country to save in two years.

Memo to John McCain: See what “reaching across the aisle” gets you?

  2. I should have wagered. When I saw the picture on the cover of today’s Slimes, I thought to myself, “Holy fuck, Hairboy must be either crying over a beer or fixing to commit murder (or composing a blogpost in his head).” And furthermore, in looking at the photo, the guy standing in the doorway, jealously coveting her as she slobbers over B_O…that was totally Sven. Did you see him?

  3. So let me get this straight….

    Democrats are going to force conservatives to include liberal voices in our commentary with the Fairness Doctrine, while they are removing conservative voices from legislation by breaking the Contract With America?

    Oh the hypocrisy!

  4. Lock and Load time appears to be getting closer every year.

  5. Red Pill,

    Nothing new. Hypocrisy is the natural MO for the Democrats. And the media go right along with it. I would think that if I were a Democrat I would be ashamed to vote for Pelosi and for these changes, but then I wake up and realize that I have some moral standards. They don’t obviously.

  6. Didn’t see much coverage or criticism in the lamestream press about this. When will we hit bottom? It’s not even Inauguration Day yet.
