Rep. Pelosi – Something Quite Different

Filed under: In The News,Politics — Ken @ 5:05 pm


House Minority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D) CA, apparently thinks the reason she and her colleages were sent to Washington D.C. was to celebrate bill signings, based on the above video clip.

Maybe she needs the pens – typically the President hands out pens when he signs the bill, small “prizes” for the politicians that helped the legislation get to his desk and other dignitaries… (President Obama used 22 pens when he signed the Healthcare Bill into law.)

Maybe she needs a reminder about one of the last major bills President Obama did sign, the extension of the Patriot Act – from France, via Autopen.
