Pity poor, old soon-to-be deposed Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
By John W. Lillpop | borderfirereport.net
While campaigning for take over of the U. S. House by Democrats in 2006, she had such high hopes for elevating the quality of politicians serving in The People’s House.
If only the American people would install a Democrat majority, she argued, corruption, greed, fraud, lying, and mean-spirited neglect would be replaced by Angels of Liberalism, souls so spiritually pure that wrong would never again be countenanced in the House.
She would, she promised, drain the swamp and clean out the riff raff and bottom dwellers!
She would smoke out, and destroy, House members affiliated with the Culture of Corruption, thereby saving America from all manner of debauchery!
She would restore public confidence in the honesty and integrity of elected officials by eradicating the unworthy from the ranks of the U. S. House!
Then the unthinkable actually happened: The people of America ceded the U. S. House to Marxists and morons, and as a result, Nancy Pelosi proved, beyond a doubt, the existence of the Peter Principle by absconding with the Speaker’s gavel which, by default, meant she was the new Speaker.
Thus began the degradation of the esteemed U. S. House to its current sorry state as the Pelosi House of Ill Repute.
Two years ago, Charles Rangel started making negative news as allegations of tax impropriety began to surface.
These revelations were particularly embarrassing to the “Swamp Lady, ” as Nancy Pelosi was known in comedy clubs and other venues where honest people congregate to talk politics.
The joke was that Pelosi’s swamp cleaner was programmed to spit out only members with an R next to their names, thereby leaving blobs of corruption like Rangel unscathed.
Still, Pelosi defended her chubby tax cheat and refused for the longest time to challenge Rangel to abandon his spot as the Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means.
Month after month, Pelosi continued to stand strong in her stubborn defense of Charles Rangel, waiting, she said. for more definitive proof and facts.
Well, Madam Speaker, how’s this breaking news item for more definitive proof?
As reported, in part, at thehill.com:
A House ethics panel has convicted Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N. Y.) on 11 of 13 counts of violating House ethics rules.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the adjudicatory subcommittee and the full House ethics committee, announced the decision late Tuesday morning following an abbreviated public trial of the 20-term lawmaker and nearly six hours of deliberations.
“We have tried to act with fairness, led only by the facts and the law,” Lofgren said. “We believe we have accomplished that mission.”
Reached at Pelosi Headquarters in an isolated cage at the San Francisco Zoo, Pelosi reacted, without batting an eye, with this terse inquiry: “Charlie? Charlie Who?”
