San Fran Nan would be a joke if she wasn’t so dangerous

“In one of the bills before us, 6 million seniors are deprived of meals — homebound seniors are deprived of meals. People ask us to find our common ground, the middle ground. Is middle ground 3 million seniors not receiving meals? I don’t think so. We’ve got to take this conversation from a debate about numbers and dollar figures and finding middle ground there to the higher ground of national values. I don’t think the American people want any one of those 6 million people to lose their meals or the children who are being thrown off of Head Start and the rest of it.”
—Pelosi (D-Calif.), April 4, 2011

In a city with overheated rhetoric, Pelosi’s statement ranks high on this year’s list of bloviated bluster. It’s bad enough that she repeatedly mixed up 6 million meals and 6 million people — and made no effort to correct the record after her statement was reported in the media. But the figure she used appears to have been invented itself, with little basis in fact.


No surprise. Really. Most politicians – especially LIFE LONG LIBERAL politicians – have, at most, a fleeting acquaintance with Truth.



  1. I was talking to the (female) owner of the local feed store this evening. We were both shaking our heads in amazement at things that the politicians were screaming were “essential”. We agreed that politicians didn’t know “essential” for shit and they’d really be screaming like a cat passin’ a watermelon if actual taxpayers that were used to budgeting made one for them.

    “You want to pass out government provided (free) Viagra to HIV positive drug addicts? Are you OUTTA YOUR MINDS? CUT!”

    “Social justice? WTF is THAT? CUT!”

    “You call shit art? I call it fertilizer. CUT!”

    Department of Energy? I call it a collosal clusterfuck. CUT!”

    Department of Education? Don’t even get me started. CUT!”

    1. I am SO with you on this, Swampie!

      “EPA has done more to harm our nation than help it, What do we care if a property-owner wants to fill in a damp spot so it can be used for a garden. CUT! ”

      “What do you mean you can’t take the Metro to work, you gotta have a car and driver? What kind of privileged little pussycat are you? CUT!”

      Can we cut the DoEn and the DoEd twice, just to make sure they’re dead?

        YES! Cut ’em, burn ’em, and sprinkle the ashes with holy water.

        As far as I’m concerned, most of government is useless or harmful and should be dismantled and covered with some o’ that radioactive water from Japan.
