$100,000 in Liquor and Pelosi’s Still Mean

Pelosi’s posse apparently racked up over $100k in liquor expenses for one trip aboard a USAF flight.   Which is an appalling waste of money, but more so when you consider it didn’t make Pelosi anymore fun.  All that booze did nothing to loosen up that rusted old bolt of a personality.  Don’t take my word for it, read what her staffers said:

” We all had a pretty good buzz on until someone mentioned health care and Madame Speaker tried to throw them out the emergency exit.  Yeah.. she’s pretty weak so  she couldn’t really open the door but then she broke a nail so we all had to listen to that for an hour….  We just drank to forget at that point…”  Anonymous

” She set me on fire while I was sleeping…” Anonymous

” When she drinks she gets really angry.. which is bad.. but if she doesn’t pass out in time.. she’ll get really depressed and that is way worse.  One time she cornered a staffer and started sharing her darkest secrets….  that dude tried to hang himself with dental floss in the lav….”  Anonymous

” Female staffers, as a rule, have to be less attractive than Madame Speaker, and that’s hard to do when she’s not drunk… but impossible after she’s had a few..  and been crying…”  Anonymous

The publication also has a section of quotes from the kids surveyed, some of which were very insightful:

” I like people more than trees.”  Lyndsey Baker, Grade 4

” Maybe if stupid people stopped picking fights with awesome superpowers there wouldn’t be anymore wars…”  Bill Pedroni, Grade 6

” My mom said don’t drink Kool-Aid from the mainstream media. ” Lisa Garretty, Grade 5

British Kids… Not a Lot to Say

The Drudge heading read “Children ‘reaching 3 without saying a word‘…” to which I said, “yes, I support that.” Come to find out it wasn’t a question but a survey recently conducted in the UK. Researchers found that some portion (yes the reported findings were that vague) of children are reaching the age of three without having said word one. Again, this is a problem? I’m not just being callus with my question, I have children, I know for a fact that once they start talking they never stop, ever…. ever. My observation aside, the British seem to think this is a problem. But not one cause by daycare apparently, because as they point out,

“Working parents who put their babies in day care are just as likely to have a child whose speech develops late as those who leave their baby in front of the television.”

I thought putting your child in front of a T.V. was daycare. Subtle distinctions aside, it is interesting to note that planting your kid in front of a T.V. for eight hours a day is only slightly more harmful than leaving them in daycare. So save your money, get a nanny cam, a flat screen and a bowl of Cheez Its and call it a day.
