Most Ethical Congress EVER…sigh…

Emails of Speaker Pelosi’s staff being jerks to military folks (can’t quite make this do what I wish, but this is a quote): 

‘ The documents also detail correspondence from intermediaries for Speaker Pelosi issuing demands for certain aircraft and expressing outrage when requested military planes were not available. “It is my understanding there are no G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable…The speaker will want to know where the planes are…” wrote Kay King, Director of the House Office of Interparliamentary Affairs. In a separate email, when told a certain type of aircraft would not be available, King writes, “This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset [s]peaker.” ‘ 

I hope the military folks smirked at that one.  “Oh noes!  The speaker’s gonna be ticked.  What will she do?  Announce to the world that we’ve failed in Iraq and try to make us look like a bunch of baby killers?  Too late on that one…”

Uuumm…maybe someone wants to mention to the speaker that she’s one of the richest folks in the US and can pay for her own freaking plane?  Before anyone comments with that fraudulent statement regarding Pelosi demanding her own jet (wasn’t true, Snow (RIP) said it and I trust him), it sounds like we might have been better off if we had given her a jet of her own.  Also, there’s a comment in there about her wanting to take her hubby with her when she went to Iraq and they turned down the request.  I tend to disagree with that.  Why waste time making her get two different private jets.  I think she should have ridden on HIS corporate jet, but what’s the difference really?  We’re paying for both of them anyway.
