House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly requested military aircraft to shuttle her and her colleagues and family around the country, according to a new report from a conservative watchdog group. Representatives for Judicial Watch, which obtained e-mails and other documents from a Freedom of Information request, said the correspondence shows Pelosi has abused the system in place to accommodate congressional leaders and treated the Air Force as her "personal airline."

Judicial Watch...should FOX really be calling them a “conservative” group? They seem more populist or contrarian to me.

"She's a witch.

She is a witch and somebody needs to send her a bigger broom so she can take care of business herself.

Of course she wanted military protection. She knows what she has done is wrong and that has made her paranoid acutely aware of her situation.

They are only a conservative group when Democrats control they White House. They were quite mainstream when they were hectoring President Bush. (At least according to the Drive By's).

One of these days people may wake up. Most narcissists become fluent in liberalise and pretend to be liberals because they know that leftist will excuse anything they do so long as their “intentions” seem good and it furthers their agenda.

Remember in Dereliction of Duty, Buzz Patterson wrote how Clinton staffers were sent back to one of the Carolinas to retrieve Chelsea's school books and fly them to some vacation spot? Or when Hillary wanted Air Force One to go back and retrieve her sunglasses in another instance. Dereliction of Duty by Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Buzz Patterson gave a lot of instances of personal servitude and/or abuse of power by Hillary.

The Honorable Speaker of the House
Congress of the United States of America
Washington, DC

Dear Speaker Pelosi:

Is it true that you use Air Force planes for your own and your family’s and staff’s benefit and with disregard of the carbon footprint you all cause? If so, why? If not, who are you buying carbon off-sets from and when did you purchase them?

Is it true that you are stonewalling the ethics investigations of Congressmen John Murtha and Charlie Rangel and other Democrats who are an embarrassment to ethical United States Citizens? If so, why? If not, I expect a full investigation to begin before mid-year 2009.

Is it true that you have not within the past 365 days read The Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights, the Amendments, and The Federalist Papers? If you have, please give the date you read them. If you have not, please let me know when you do.

Thank you.
Sincerely,
me

I don't know how accurate my source was but I understood that it was costing FIVE MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR to fly this clown around on military aircraft!

The only choice she should have is “window or isle?”
