Bloviating Zeppelin: Tuesday Phone Calls

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Tuesday Phone Calls

Nancy Pelosi is lighting up the phone lines of every Demorat she can find.

The words will incorporate threats. And she means each and every one of them.

They will go something like this:

"If you expect to see even one dollar from the DNC in any of your future campaigns, and if you expect your life to be even remotely smoothe, then you'll be voting for whatever ObamaKare package I direct."

The Politico writes in part:

Asked this weekend to grade her performance as speaker, Nancy Pelosi gave herself an “A for effort.”

But Pelosi knows that the real test is still to come.

Now in her fourth year as speaker and eighth overall as the top Democrat in the House, Pelosi has never faced such a daunting set of challenges.

Pelosi suffered a tremendous personal loss with the death of her friend and her most influential ally in the House, Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman John Murtha. Another of Pelosi’s powerful colleagues, Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel, has seen his influence diminished by ethical problems — including an admonishment last week by theHouse ethics committee.

“She doesn’t delegate,” said one House Democrat close to the speaker. “It’s her biggest flaw. She has to have her hand in every decision.”

That means there’s no one else to blame for Democratic setbacks other than Pelosi, and she will have to answer if the party suffers at the polls.

This should come as absolutely no shock whatsoever:

Pelosi “will put a bullet in the head of anyone she needs to,” said a Democratic insider. “Rangel, any incumbent that looks like he’s going to lose. She’ll do anything it takes to keep her majority, anything.”


Pelosi and other top House Democrats say publicly that they have the votes to push through a comprehensive (ObamaKare) package, but privately, they know they don’t.

I can only hope.

Talk about the walking dead. Do you remember that cartoon called Ren and Stimpy? They would do these extreme hideous close-ups on people revealing their horrible looking facial hair, food in teeth etc. She needs to be embalmed to preserve that prehistoric look of hers. Isn't she an endangered species? I global warming killing her kind off?

Jenn: the full court press continues.

TF: yeah, I'm sorry if I spoiled your lunch. And I purposely chose a photograph that was more - ahem - kind to her than I normally would have.

Chris: I missed Ren and Stimpy. And no, she won't go away; that's the point. She just may be able to push this ObamaKare crap through by sheer dint of willpower -- something the GOP sorely LACKS.

And THAT is another point: the weakness and insincerity of the GOP.

Two things that may lead to active revolution-

Passing this health care bill when 80% of the electorate now opposes it.

Nationalizing retirement plans-
IRA's, 401k's, 403b's, etc.

Are they truly stupid enough to take that chance?
She probably is, but I seriously doubt most of the other congresspersons are.

bd: let's build a statue to her at Pier 39 in SF, eh? Further, let's craft a law that mandates all will bow down to her statue, at least in her district, at noon sharp.

NFO: okay, heavy sigh; you took the wind out my sails for an upcoming post regarding retirement accounts -- darn you!
