Un-American?

So, the rest of the United States is finally getting to see the trainwreck of a Representative that California has been witnessing/experiencing in Nancy Pelosi. I’m sorry you’ve been subjected to her.

I typically don’t get fired up over politics – it’s just not my style. Don’t get me wrong, I’m often disgusted by the whole lot of them. But this gem pissed me off. If you don’t feel like reading her blather, here’s what perked up my ears:

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.

Huh, that’s interesting. Thank goodness no Democrats have ever participated in such behavior. But it gets better – as I’m sure anybody who has ventured out from under their rocks in the past week have heard, the White House website posted this last week:

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

So, let me get this straight – any dissent is Un-American? Anybody who speaks out is Un-American? Can you imagine the screams if the Bush administration had asked for an email anytime somebody dissented on either the Iraq or Afghanistan wars? And what the hell is the White House planning to do with that list of dissenters to their plan? That sounds a touch un-American to me. Rather Orwellian. And I hope their spam filters are tuned up.

Anyway, in some article somwhere or other, I stumbled across this link in the comments section. Hmm, who looks organized and who looks like the average Joe off the street? Wait, I’m sure Nancy will tell us that’s part of the evil plot – as you organize those un-American Americans, make sure they look like the average citizen. But wait, what’s this? Yeah, that’s really going to help convince me. Shame on you, Nancy. I do wonder though, will Nancy’s weekly botox injections be covered by the new plan? Oh wait, that’s right, she has a plan that puts this one to shame.

A spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi demurred when asked if she would sign up for a government-run plan.

Indeed.

Edit: I just found a job. Sweet!
