Power Above All Else

Posted by Mike on January 4, 2007

History was made earlier today when Nancy Pelosi became the first female Speaker of the House. Unfortunately, it looks like it’s all down hill from here. The Republican party learned the hard way that a majority which prioritizes power over implementing a common sense agenda is destined to lose its power. So what were San Fran Nan’s thoughts on the eve of this historic day?

After calling herself “the most powerful woman in America,” Mrs. Pelosi flexed her right muscle like a weight lifter to much applause at an event yesterday titled a “women’s tea.”
“All right, let’s hear it for the power,” she screamed as the jubilant applause continued.

It took Republicans years to become addicted to power. It appears that Pelosi and her tea club were drunk with power before the gavel was handed over. If she keeps this up, it won’t take the GOP very long to win back the House.

The Democrat’s Undoing – The Kook Fringe

Posted by Sal on January 4, 2007

This is fun.  Yesterday, the Democrat’s attempted to unveil their lobbying reform measures to the press, and they were shouted down by Cindy Sheehan and a large group of anti-war protestors, who don’t want anything else done until funding for the Iraq war is cut off.  Rep. Rahm Emanuel , (D-IL) was forced to abandon the press conference because he wasn’t able to get a word in.  Says Sheehan (cue high-pitched rhythmic Cindy Sheehan Voice): “We wanted the Democrats to know they’re back in power because of the grass roots.”  Cindy Sheehan puts the Democrats in a bind.  Treated as infallible when the Republicans were in power, they’ve built her up to be an icon.  Now, they will be  forced to either ignore her, in which case she will become a thorn in their side, or they will have to capitulate to her, which will put them at odds with about 85% of the electorate. 

 The next two years are going to be fun.
