Today, Nancy Pelosi sported her elitist ways and displayed her disdain for Americans who don’t agree with her.
House Democratic leaders and protesters waving McCain signs had a war of words Tuesday at a press event outside an old train station. The demonstrators interrupted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with chants of “Drill here! Drill now!”
Pelosi paused and asked the group, “Right here?”
Seeming to enjoy the back and forth, she followed with another question: “Can we drill your brains?”
She went on to refer to the protesters, who continued to chant sporadically, as “handmaidens of Big Oil.” Arguing that increased offshore drilling would reduce gas prices by only a couple of pennies a decade from now, she referred to the demonstrators as the “2-cents-in-10-years-crowd.”
Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer swiped at the demonstrators, too, saying that “sophomoric chanting” won’t solve the energy crisis and that “all thinking Americans know” — stressing the word “thinking” and looking at the crowd — that America doesn’t have a quarter of the word’s fossil fuels yet uses a quarter of the world’s energy.
Never mind that the majority of Americans are for offshore drilling, we are just too stupid to live.
If this discussion were about drilling the brains of Congressional Democrats, I might agree that there is no real benefit since the supply is pretty low! But just in case, let’s say we set aside a year to drill the brains of the Democrats in Congress….what would we do with the other 364 days, 23 hours, and 55 minutes?
Nancy’s had the gavel for 2 years now right? Let’s just call it the “NonSense-for-2-Years-Crowd”!
Geez…she is an embarassment. isn’t she?
