Pelosi Slam Punk'd


Al Kamen of the Washington Post:
And the Speaker During the Price Spike Was . . .

An eagle-eyed Senate GOP aide, perusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Web site, calls attention to her assertion there that "Americans are paying more than double for gas than when President Bush first took office."

She says the average price per gallon when he took office in 2001 was $1.47 and had reached $3.22 by May 21.

So that means gas prices went up by $1.75 a gallon over six years. But more than half of that increase, 90 cents, our source says, has come in the past six months -- the six months that she's been speaker of the House. Our source says the average price per gallon on Jan. 3, the day before she became speaker, was $2.32.

Maybe Rep. Jim Oberstar (D-Minn.) can lend her a bike.

I hope the Sheewitch sticks with the campaign.

Wouldn't it be too funny to see her debate Pelosi?

The only downside to that is Pelosi would seem sane and reasonable by comparison.

LOL! How in the world did I miss this post? Mike's right; Pelosi would seem nearly rational compared to Sheehan. It's easy to see that poor Cindy couldn't stand being out of the limelight. She's so used to making a complete fool out of herself that to not do so was driving crazy. Well, maybe that's not the right way to say it. Can you say that an already crazy person is being driven crazy?
