Nancy Pelosi: I want my own jet and I want it now!

"And I also want an office that is shaped in an oval. And a big leather chair and one of those pretty red telephones for my desk. And my own chef, and a little dog named, uhm...Marney or Carney or something like that who will ride with me in my airplane. Now, please."

Okay, so Madame Speaker didn't actually say the last part in this article, as far as we know, but still. Yeesh! Wonder what the Democratic party faithful think about this. I hope they are embarrassed. Talk about your "inconvenient truths."

h/t Instapundit, of course. Duh.

John Edwards isn't helping his "Two Americas" message with his new 28,000 sq. ft. home, either. Harry Reid is busily snubbing his nose at the "Culture of Corruption" with his shady land deals and staunch defense of the earmark pork trough. Queen Nancy wants her perqs, and she wants them ostentatious, as she rides in her 15mpg Tahoe to a global warming committee meeting.

I wish we still had and embraced the concept of leading by example in this country. I was (probably naively) hoping for some improvement under the new leadership, but it's looking an awful lot like The Who's "meet the new boss, same as the old boss." Color me disappointed.

BTW, I got a real laugh out of your comment on my blog yesterday. Yes, I consider myself truly blessed to have the "problems" that I have! :-)
