Your daily laugh, courtesy of Speaker Pelosi

Conversing, on public television, with Dr. William R. Brody, out-going president of Johns Hopkins University, Nancy Pelosi, talking about working toward guaranteeing affordable, good health care for all (a wonderful goal, but hardly, by my understanding of the words of the Constitution, the business of the Federal government), remarked something to the effect of — and this is decidedly not verbatim — “Barack Obama has really taken the initiative here by changing the way Washington works”, seemingly with respect, specifically, to lobbying.

What? He has?! Ohmigawsh, why had no-one mentioned this to me? Where have I been?

  1. I’m currently watching the debate and drinking every time one of the politicians dodges/manipulates a question

    ………How many Obamas are they holding up?

    Pax Christi,

  2. I’d drink every time McCain uses the word “earmark”, but I really like the beer that I bought — so abusing it would be inappropriate –, and I don’t, in the words of Daniel Larison, want to lose consciousness.

  3. I have Coors. Inhibitions are low. And other favorites have been “pork-barrel,” “Main street,” and “raising taxes.”

    I wonder if they can agree to bail-out my liver after tonight

    Pax Christi,
