Nancy Pelosi Is Coming, Run For Your Lives!!

With his attempts to spin away the Foley scandal a) turning out to be all lies, and b) proving him a soulless douchebag, Matt Drudge is moving on to tackle another right-wing tactic... the attempt to paint Rep. Nancy Pelosi as some sort of boogeyman. Here is Matt's latest, a mix of a fear of Pelosi and that Bush's tax cuts might have to- gosh- be reconsidered in a period of war and economic uncertainity. Take it away, Matt-

OMG, sounds horrifying!! Save me, GOP!!

Here's what the article he links to says, with my notes-
Franklin Roosevelt had his first hundred days.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is thinking 100 hours, time enough, she says, to begin to "drain the swamp" after more than a decade of Republican rule.

As in the first 100 hours the House meets after Democrats — in her fondest wish — win control in the Nov. 7 midterm elections and Pelosi takes the gavel as the first Madam Speaker in history.

Day One: Put new rules in place to "break the link between lobbyists and legislation."

[Blueduck's note: OMG, no! You liberal bitch! Don't take our lobbyists away!! ]

Day Two: Enact all the recommendations made by the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

[Blueduck's note: How dare you try to enact the 9/11 Commission recommendations; the war on terror is the President's job only. Period. Just nod your head and acquiesce to his every move and utterance and you can be as effective as the current Congress has been at using the war to divide Americans for political gain saving us from evildoers and folks.]

Time remaining until 100 hours: Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, maybe in one step. Cut the interest rate on student loans in half. Allow the government to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients.

[Blueduck's note: Raise the minimum wage??! That's communism! That will destroy the American economy. Why if companies have to pay workers a fair and liveable salary, their only obvious response will be to fire lots of employees and move their businesses overseas!!!!! That is the obvious logical response, Nancy! And don't give me this 'we should force the pharmaceutical companies to give us better prices on necessary medicine' commie crap either. If people want the good stuff, they better cough up the big money. That's called capitalism, comrade.]

Broaden the types of stem cell research allowed with federal funds — "I hope with a veto-proof majority," she added in an Associated Press interview Thursday.

[Blueduck's note: Fine, try and save lives with your fancy 'science', but I hope you won't mind burning in fires of Hell later.]

All the days after that: "Pay as you go," meaning no increasing the deficit, whether the issue is middle class tax relief, health care or some other priority.

[Blueduck's note: Hey, now don't attacking the deficit. President Bush and the Republicans have worked very, very hard to get it up as high as they have. They already beat Reagan's record, now they want to make sure their record will be untouchable for future generations too. Don't rob them of that opportunity.]

To do that, she said, Bush-era tax cuts would have to be rolled back for those above "a certain level." She mentioned annual incomes of $250,000 or $300,000 a year and higher, and said tax rates for those individuals might revert to those of the Clinton era. Details will have to be worked out, she emphasized.

[Blueduck's note: Rolled back? Clinton-era levels? Yea, Nancy, good luck convincing Americans to go back to the levels of the Clinton era, an age of economic doom and shanty towns. Next thing you know, you'll be saying that we should aim for a surplus too. Does your hate and disgust for American know no limits?]

This woman sounds like a fucking monster.

Finally, James Love at HuffPost looks at the disaster of return to Clinton form-

And who would want that?

Thank you, Matt, for saving me from making a big mistake next month.
