Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has to go, and here’s why…
On Monday, September 14, 2009, the Senate overwhelmingly voted to cut off funding to ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). If you’re reading this, the odds are pretty good that you learned of this back on Monday when it happened. Also, the odds are that you don’t even work for the government, let alone work as a U.S. Representative. Yet consider that the Speaker of the House of Representatives “confessed” on Wednesday that she didn’t even know of the vote that had happened in the other house of Congress. It defies belief.
Keep in mind also that “Her Royal Nancyness” voted not once, not twice, but six times to block some sort of control of ACORN’s access to public funds.
So, it looks like there are three possible explanations for this “I missed that defund ACORN vote” on the part of Pelosi:
- She really didn’t know because she (typo fix… that should be “she’s”) incomprehensibly incompetent.
- She really didn’t know because she’s profoundly stupid… (This is a real possibility since Nancy thought we were losing 500,000,000 jobs per month and said so twice.)
- She did know about the vote, and just lied to us.
Take your pick, but however you explain this one, Nancy Pelosi should be looking for new work. At this point, I seriously wonder if she has the integrity and/or brains to flip burgers.
P.S. Here are the “Acorn Seven” who voted to keep funding ACORN… Remember, some of these folks come up for re-election in 2012.
