Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi venturing over to the Oval Office late at night to nosh on the First Member and otherwise pleasure the most unpopular President in American history?
Or does George W. Bush have a file of photos of Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid shacked up at one of those seedy motels that line U.S. Route 1 south of Washington?
Something is going on because there is no rational explanation for the willingness of both Pelosi and Reid to roll over and constantly abandon the wishes of voters who put their party into power in the 2006 mid-term elections. They did it again Wednesday by giving in to Bush on cuts in domestic spending while adding billions for the President’s failed war in Iraq.
Perhaps we expected too much of Democrats. They are, of course, just another set of political whores – more liberal than the Republicans they replaced but whores nonetheless.
We’ve heard all the convenient political excuses as to why Democrats give Bush just about everything he wants: They don’t have the votes to override vetoes, they can’t muster needed support from the Republican minority, they don’t want to be seen as abandoning soldiers in the field, etc., etc.
But Pelosi started screwing the voters who trusted her and her party before the new Congress even convened. She set the tone of capitulation by taking impeachment of Bush and his criminal cabal off the table.
Since then she and Reid have proven to be complicit co-conspirators to the Bush-Cheney plan for destruction of the Constitution and a once-great nation called America.
We could offer a sexist rationale by saying a woman wasn’t up to the job but that’s not true. Women capable of leadership serve in Congress. Pelosi just isn’t one of them. One problem is that she is her father’s daughter and her father was a corrupt, bribe-taking mayor of Baltimore.
And Reid, another bribe-taking hack from Nevada, proves you can have balls and still be a wimp.
Neither Reid nor Pelosi have shown an ounce of leadership since assuming power on Capitol Hill. Such subservience to Bush defies explanation.
We never really expected that much out of Reid but we hoped Pelosi would rise above her upbringing and prove she is capable of the challenge.
The only thing she proved is that she is just another political whore.
And like any easy woman, Pelosi will spread her legs and let Bush screw her and the American people faster than a five-dollar whore in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
The only difference is that the New Orleans’ ho is probably a better lay and you’re actually getting something for your money.
