Howie Carr thread week of Aug 28, 2011 ^ | 8/28/11 | raccoonradio

Posted on 08/28/2011 6:48:12 AM PDT by raccoonradio

Howie thread for the week starting with his Sunday Herald column. Just before 10 am now, as what is now Tropical Storm Irene heads through the northeast. Here on Boston's North Shore I can tell you from our Eyewitness Weather studio (where I look out the window and witness the weather) that it's light rain, not really windy. (It may pick up later but the storm is weakening though I'm sure it's a lot worse west of here)

Poor Nancy Pelosi’s rants vs. GOP don’t add up

By Howie Carr | Friday, September 2, 2011 |

The Botox must be getting to Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker who until January was (God help us) third in line for the presidency.

This moonbat’s moonbat has never been the sharpest knife in the drawer, but her latest outburst may be her nuttiest yet.

Late last month, at a fund-raiser in her hometown of San Francisco, she discussed those wonderful days of 2007, when the Democrats retook control of the House and raised the minimum wage. It hadn’t been increased for a decade.

“It was kept down for the purpose that people would not be able to live on that. They’d have to borrow against home-equity loans, against their mortgages.”

For the record, the minimum wage in California (and Massachusetts) is $8 an hour. How many people making eight bucks an hour can afford a mortgage, let alone a home-equity loan?

“They’d have to live on credit cards, and what are they doing when they’re doing that? They’re paying fees to the banks.”

So that’s it! Those bleeping Republicans. Nancy then went down the list of the programs that the greedy GOP is gutting.

“You wonder, do their children breathe? Do they drink water? Why do they not care? But they don’t. But they don’t.”

Remember when she used to have her Air Force jet stocked with Johnnie Walker Blue? Wonder what she’s sipping nowadays. I double-dare you to diagram this next sentence:

“Imagine that they are protecting the tax cuts for top 2 percent, it’s really more higher than that, lower than that, I mean a higher number — percentage of people excluded for who they’re looking out for.”

May we quote you on that?

“And it’s a stunning thing because it’s a few people amassing money that doesn’t really make a difference in their quality of life.”

Please, tell us what the plutocrats want, you who are worth $35 million yourself.

“What more do they want? They have enough homes, the yacht, ya-da-da-da, the tall masts, the whole thing, they have museum-quality art.”

Museum-quality art envy. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods, Nancy.

“They want immortality. They want so much money . . . for prestige they could never get any other way.”

You know, like having, say, a hospital named after themselves. Why are these rich people allowed to have buildings named after themselves, just because they donated the money to build them? Everything should be named after liberal politicians like Ted Kennedy, whose building will be paid for not by his family or his estate but by ... us.

Is he the reason we still have Deval?
