Misundestimating Nancy Pelosi
by John W. Lillpop
The events of March 23, 2007 will surely go down in history as pivotal in defining what America stands for and what Americans are willing to fight for.
For the first time in history, a feminist with "Special Olympics" capabilities held the Speaker's gavel in the U.S. House and played a major role in defining anti-American foreign policy.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) did the moment proud.
To begin with, Pelosi made it clear that all the talk about Iraq being a rerun of Viet Nam is more than just anti-Bush rhetoric.
In fact, Pelosi authenticated the analogy by leading her party into a quagmire of anti-war malfeasance similar to what Democrats did to America in the 1970s.
The final vote was Jihad 218, American troops 212. America's first female speaker has thus spoken, and left an indelible mark on American war politics.
However, a critical question remains: Did Pelosi speak for or against America?
In addition to the "firsts" surrounding Pelosi's personal demographics, the vote marks the first time in history that the U.S. House has attempted to surrender via C-Span television.
With 18 months remaining until the Pelosi term ends, concession politics by way of satellite may become fairly common, especially now that the C-Span signal (with Arabic sub-titles) can be received in Afghan caves by Islamofascist subscribers.
To those who tend to misunderestimate Pelosi, be reminded that only 14 Democrats voted with the GOP on this vital issue.
This is a clear sign that Pelosi cannot only count to 218, but that she knows how to use cajoling, jawboning, and pork-bribes in order to defeat America.
Today's historic vote reaffirms the precipitous decline of the Democrat party from the days of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Scoop Jackson, and General Douglas MacArthur, to a party now featuring the likes of John Murtha, Maxine Waters, and Dennis Kucinich.
With the heady days of Camelot gone forever, the Democrat party is now a collection of outcasts and clowns led by a House Speaker who would, if she could, slash $300 billion from the war on terror and homeland security, and give the money to illegal aliens.
Still, there is some hope: Voters can force the liberal buffoons and enemies of America to withdraw from Washington, D.C., at the next election.
Mark down November 4, 2008 as a "Date Certain" that those who love America can support and look forward to!
John Lillpop is a recovering liberal.
