The news is out - and missed by the MSM - that Nancy Pelosi, in just one year as Speaker of the House, spent tons of money on things she should not have, including - get this one - $16,000 for flowers, which is more than some people earn in a year.
Her excuse? She's got a lot of expenses.
Pay for your own flowers, you piece of shit.
Pelosi buys $16K worth of flowers
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent $16,000 on flowers since taking office, one reason why she spent 63 percent more in her high-profile inaugural year than her low-key predecessor did last year.
Pelosi (D-Calif.) spent a little more than $3 million in the first nine months of 2007, records show, compared to the $1.8 million Rep. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) spent during the same period in 2006.
Republicans are spending more as well. House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) has increased spending 23 percent above what Pelosi spent when she held the same job. That would be 16 percent if some of Hastert’s closing-out costs were deducted.
The spending patterns indicate Pelosi is seeking to restore the Speaker’s role as a counterweight to the president and reclaim some of the responsibilities Hastert had ceded to his aggressive majority leader, Tom DeLay (R-Texas). Because of their different roles, Pelosi aides say it is unfair to simply compare Pelosi’s spending to Hastert’s.
“When Speaker Pelosi took the gavel, it was an historic moment. In the days since, the Speaker has hosted leaders from across the country and around the world — opening the People’s House to the people and discussing the work of the 110th Congress,” Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said in response to e-mailed questions. “There are major new costs associated with setting up the new office of the new Speaker of the House.”
Wait - is this the same 110th Congress that has done next to nothing but try to undercut our troops in Iraq? That 110th Congress?
The good news is that Pelosi is feeling the heat from all quarters - including from her own nutty Left. And fruitcake scumbag Piece of Shit Mom Cindy Sheehan is back for more, now calling for Pelosi's impeachment.
Yep, you read that right.
This could not get any funnier, or could it?
Cindy Sheehan: Impeach Pelosi for collaboration with Bush administration on torture
Peace activist, Cindy Sheehan says that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi collaborated with the Bush administration in condoning torture because Pelosi knew about water boarding torture since 2002. “Even before becoming Speaker of the House of Representative, she said that impeachment of Bush is out of question.” She should be impeached for knowing about torture which dehumanize us all, she added.
Washington Post reported last week that in September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat Rep. Jane Harman, was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.
Speaking at the fourth peace convention of the American Muslim Voice in Newark, CA, last Sunday, Sheehan reiterated that she will be running for Congress against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the congressional seat representing San Francisco.
On August 9, Cindy Sheehan announced that in 2008 she will run as an independent candidate against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). "I dedicate my candidacy to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan," Sheehan said. Sheehan later appeared on CNN to explain that she was running because "they're not making the administration change course in Iraq. They give him more money ... to wage the war. They're not holding him accountable."
Here is our recommendation: we take Nancy Pelosi AND Cindy Sheehan and torture them both. How to do that? How about forcing them to listen to some music they really hate? Or perhaps to Osama bin Laden's speeches? Then again, they sound so much like bin Laden, that they could be refreshed from some of his words.
We need to come up with something. Or, perhaps, best of all, we should just get rid of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker in 2008, so she can be back in the minority where she belongs.
