Let me just spell out something about Pelosi’s cave on drilling.
If you don’t know which one I mean, check out Erick’s post first. Up to speed? Excellent. Anyway, just for the record: this is merely a long-delayed, mildly good start. We’ll be expecting and getting quite a bit more out of it, so if you’re one of those Democrats who don’t like poor people being able to drive, I suggest that you not get too | Read More »
The House GOP Protest is Working. Pelosi Folding Like a Cheap Tent.
The Hill is reporting overnight Nancy Pelosi is caving to the House Republican protest. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday night dropped her staunch opposition to a vote on offshore oil drilling in the House. Republicans, reacting to high gas prices, have demanded a vote on additional oil exploration in the Outer Continental Shelf, where drilling is currently blocked by a moratorium. Until now, Pelosi | Read More »
Pres. Bush saves Pelosi from political fallout over gas prices
George Bush was convinced (apparently by West Virginia Congressman Nick Rahall) not to call Congress back into session to write an energy bill. This is a strange twist on the effect of the “Lame Duck” presidency. Congress, it is true, will tend to ignore the policy priorities of an outgoing President when it has other priorities of its own, but shouldn’t the freedom from personal | Read More »

88 Days until Election Day August 8, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: PELOSI IN ANN ARBOR….HELPING SAVE THE PLANET….while we pay more for gas and energy…sending over $700 Billion a year overseas to some unfriendly nations because the Democrats won’t let us drill and develop our own oil reserves. Shame! Nancy Pelosi’s energy plan: Write a bad book, pulp the remainders, and burn the waste as biomass. | Read More »
‘Why Is Nancy Pelosi Taking Care of Personal Business Rather Than the People’s Business?’
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in Ann Arbor, Mich., tonight promoting her new book. Next week she’ll make stops in several California cities before swinging through Denver on her way to the Democratic National Convention (view complete schedule). Unfortunately for Pelosi, Americans aren’t buying it — the book has an Amazon sales rank of 1,567. As she talks about her legacy in posh book stores, millions | Read More »
2,737 is an awesome number. I mean, check out these interesting facts:
Vacationing Nanny Pelosi Sends in the Clowns
Increasing her carbon footprint hawking her little-perused and even lesser-purchased book, vacationing U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has refused to reconvene Congress to hold a vote for lower gas prices and, instead, has issued a directive to her Politburo Palace Guard called MoveOn.Org: “Send in the Clowns!” From disparate parts unknown, Pelosi’s extremist heralds of higher gas prices descended upon my district office where – | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi – Unimpressed, Unimpressive
Fox news tells us that Nancy Pelosi is unimpressed by House GOP efforts to bring the House back into session to address gas prices and get an Energy bill done. According to Fox, Pelosi sent a letter to Minority leader Boehner suggesting this: The facts are clear. The Democratic-led Congress has repeatedly brought forth proposals to increase domestic supply, reduce the price at the pump, | Read More »

Pointing a finger at the enablers of Jose Ernesto Medellin’s execution.
Never mind that he was convicted of raping and murdering two teenagers (14 and 16); the International Court of Justice and the United Nations both wanted Medellin not to be executed, and what is the State of Texas to argue with them? Well… it’s a State in the USA, which means that it actually has rights that the federal government is not in fact empowered | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi Live at 3:00 EDT
No, Nancy won’t be discussing energy policy, but she will be discussing her new book that is selling crap poorly. The discussion will be live via the Washington Post’s website. You can ask her a question by going here. Hint: the question can be about why she won’t let energy legislation be voted on instead of about her book. Oh, and why not copy and | Read More »
Democrats: “There is no crisis on our side of the aisle”
Via Politico, we have an excellent montage of quotes and comments to help us better understand why there will be no energy legislation before the next Congress is sworn in…and a clearer picture of the depths of hell Democrats are willing to drag us through in order to expand their power in Washington: But what looks like intraparty tension on the surface is part of | Read More »

92 Days until Election Day August 4, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: OBAMA IN MICHIGAN TODAY…spinning his "jobs" and "energy" plans. How does 70 mpg CAFE standards, higher taxes, and more government programs create a SINGLE job in Michigan? Independent and Reagan Democrats need to think twice before even considering voting for Obama…Granholm’s failed policies at the national level? I REPEAT MYSELF…If you like what Jennifer Granholm | Read More »
Well, Speaker Pelosi proved yesterday that telepathy DOES NOT WORK.
As it stands, as far as I can tell they couldn’t even manage to pop one of her blood vessels. For that matter, if telepathy worked George Stephanopoulos probably would have succumbed to his barely-hidden urge to leap across the table and strangle the Speaker with his own tie before she completely wrecked the Democrats’ chances to win 30 seats this election*.
