Pelosi's Air Force

Posted By Uncle Jimbo • [February 08, 2007]

Coming from perhaps the least military friendly district in America, it is a little disgusting to watch Nancy Pelosi shamelessly try to use her new power to get as many toys and perks as possible.

She has basically put the Air Force on notice that she and an entourage must be transported at a moments notice in the largest and most luxurious manner possible. She shunned the C-20 that Speaker Hastert used as insufficient for her needs. It's a Gulfstream IV FFS, a luxury jet that billionaires fly on. But Speaker Grandma needs more. She wants her own military 757 and a crew of 14 to handle her and up to 50 guests, family, and hangers on.

After all the talk about cleaning up Congress and bi-partisanship etc. all she really meant was clean out the Republican desks and knock out a few walls for elbow room, oh and double down on all perks for senior leadership, right?

Worst and sadly not surprisingly, she sent out trained attack jackass John Murtha to threaten the military if they don't comply with their new overlords.

"Late Wednesday afternoon, one of Pelosi's closest allies in the House, Rep. John Murtha, D-Penn., chairman of the key Appropriations Committee subcommittee on defense, told CNN that the Pentagon was making "a mistake" by leaking information unfavorable to the speaker "since she decides on the allocations for the Department of Defense."

Boy there is a little naked aggression for you, eh? Next thing you know meathead will be issuing redeployment orders to Okinawa for our troops in Iraq.

The US military is not a spoil of the political system to be used for the aid and comfort of the bloodsucking leeches otherwise known as the US Congress. You won a slim majority in Congress people, don't start acting all imperial and what not, oh wait. No go ahead and act all imperial, we do have elections coming up in '08.

You want a military aircraft that can deploy you and, oh maybe a hundred combat-rigged paratroopers bloated plutocrats and lobbyists. I got one for ya'.
