Nancy Pelosi figures out a way to get her brain completely off the grid

Nancy Pelosi loves dirt. Hates oil. Averts national unnamed post office crisis.

 

Time Magazine ran an editorial about how worthless the 110th Congress was and managed not to mention Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid. I thought I’d give them a plug.

By Washington metrics, they are a tandem disaster because they’ve only managed to pass 260 lousy pieces of legislation.  I don’t know how many lousy bills a Congress has to pass for Time to consider them “transformative,” but 260 makes you a do-nothing Congress, which, since 1948, is the lowest kind of Congress you can be.  Frankly, if I were ever a member of a do-nothing Congress, I would kill myself to escape the shame of it.

Anyway, here are some of the finer legislative achievements of the 110th, according to Time:

  • Of the 260 pieces of bad legislation, 74 of them concern naming post offices.
  • July is National Watermelon Month. 
  • Dirt has been declared a natural resource; so wash your grubby hands, that filth under your nails is taxable.

Obama touts proper tire pressure as solution to energy crisis– Speculators drive up the cost of compressed air

 

It’s been just over a year since MICHAEL E. O’HANLON and KENNETH M. POLLACK wrote their seminal OP-ED in the NY Times, A WAR WE JUST MIGHT WIN.

In September we will reach the anniversary of Democrats Hillary Clinton and Christopher Dodd voting against the Senate bill that condemned  MoveOn.org for running a full page ad denouncing General Petraeus as a lying traitor “[refusing] to admit what everyone knows: Iraq is mired in an unwinnable religious civil war.” 

July has just ended and we find an Iraq with violence at an all time low.  The Iraqi army is standing up, Al Qaeda has fled the battlefield, the Iraqi government has met 15 of 18 benchmarks and U.S. troops have suffered fewest casualties since the war began. And as far as I know the only two people who still have doubts about the surges efficacy are Democrat Nancy Pelosi and Senator Obama.  And yet still no apology from MoveOn.org to our General.

By the way, how did Obama vote on the resolution to condemn MoveOn.org?  Well, the courageous fellow managed a way not to vote at all.

Democrats once again protect us from “oil hoax”–go on vacation

Democrats are Mechanically Inclined


From The Say Anything Blog:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday shut the door on expanding oil and gas drilling beyond areas that have already been approved for energy exploration, drawing a clear distinction from her counterparts in charge of the Senate.

“This call for drilling in areas that are protected is a hoax, it’s an absolute hoax on the part of the Republicans and this administration” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference. “It’s a decoy to punt your attention away from the fact that their policies have produced $4-a-gallon gasoline.”

Promise Keeper

April 24, 2006, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.” 

So now that fuel prices are breezing their way to 5 clams a gallon, what are the “commonsense” proposals Pelosi has squeezed out of the collective brain of the Democratic party?

  1. Put corn in their gas tank.
  2. Don’t drill for oil.
  3. Sue OPEC .
  4. Raise taxes on the oil companies.
  5. Don’t cut the gas tax.
  6. Deplete the strategic oil (700 million barrels) reserve…
  7. Mock the idea that the billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas from ANWR could make the slightest dent. 

See, this is what you get when you let a San Francisco liberal define commonsense.  Thank God we would never let them define marriage.
