It’s time for a new law: Politicians May Not Criticize Other Politicians.
Yes, I know, it’s their job. But this is like eating an onion to cover up your garlic breath.
It’s a sorcerer’s stew that blends, Zest of Pelosi, Eye of Newt, Fresh Grated Reid, A Can of Cantor, A Mixed Malady of Mongering Politicians, all blended with Media Soup Stock that one must brew and steep until the next election.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the CIA lied; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, sniffing garlic, says, “Well, I think that with Speaker Pelosi’s comments last Thursday, particularly the ones in which she alleged that the Central Intelligence Agency routinely lies to Congress, that she really disqualified herself to be speaker.”
I smell onion! Remember this 1998 Associated Press report, The House ethics committee dropped the three remaining ethics charges against Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) yesterday, despite finding that Gingrich repeatedly violated one rule by using a political consultant to develop the Republican legislative agenda.
If nothing else we have a good start to some pasta sauce, but, the rest of the likely ingredients would send us to the emergency room for a stomach pumping. And with the cost of medical care, that’s not a good thing.
I’m not in love with Nancy Pelosi. Newt pissed me off when he dumped his first wife as she hauled out from cancer surgery, noting, “She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.”
Our government requires public servants. Sadly, some of these elected officials exist in an alternate universe. Did they attend Sorcerer’s U?
As your average US citizen, I would easily say, yes, the CIA lies. It’s c-o-v-e-r-t. Remember the Iran-Contra debacle? I once wrote a county song titled, “Who’s Lying to the Liar?” Okay, the song didn’t go anywhere, but the title remains honest.
