Pelosi to celebrate the big 7-0 on Friday (Help needed to suggest gifts)
The Hill ^ | March 24, 2010 | Christina Wilkie

Posted on 03/25/2010 7:55:17 AM PDT by Zakeet

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has a big birthday coming up on Friday, and after passing historic healthcare reform legislation this week, she's got plenty to celebrate.

But while her office is remaining mum on the Speaker's plans, the owner of Washington's toniest gift shop has some great ideas for birthday presents.

Keith Lipert counts royalty, ambassadors, CEOs, and members of Congress among the clients who come to his Georgetown shop for help deciding on the perfect, and most diplomatic gifts. He's too discreet to name them, of course, but he shared his suggestions for what Pelosi's colleagues might give her.

He advises to "consider asking a few people who admire her to inscribe a leather-bound Constitution, which only costs $20, thanking her for her service."

For personal friends and people who've "been in the trenches with [Pelosi]," Lipert said that, "women can give her a necklace, but I'd recommend to a man that he give her a brooch. And for a spring birthday, a cherry blossom symbolizes Washington and renewal."

Perhaps some of you Freepers would like to suggest an appropriate gift or express a special greeting for Her Royal Majesty's big occasion

“He advises to “consider asking a few people who admire her to inscribe a leather-bound Constitution, which only costs $20, thanking her for her service.” “

#####

On the incredible irony.

More appropriate for the likes of an elitist Communist like Pelosi, would be a 4 roll pack of US Constitution toilet paper.

Send her a nice card and inform her that you will be boycotting gay Francisco and anything made or controlled by a liberal corporation:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a muted victory lap today after the historic House vote on health care reform In the meantime we can boycott gay Frisco, since they keep Pelosi in congress:

We will never be able to defeat Pelosi, the Mafafi witch, due to the love affair between her and the gay agenda pushers/voters in Gay Frisco.

However, Gay Frisco can be brought to its financial knees.

Gay Frisco is having a severe economic meltdown due to the benefits for union thugs and illegals.

If every American Adult, who dislikes the Health Care farce pushed on us by Pelosi, boycotted San Francisco re visits, meetings and products, we can make that liberal gay hell hole a miserable place to live and try to work in.

Boycott Ghiradelli Chocolates!

Boycott Trans America Financial Products:

Boycott Gap Products/companies: Levi Strauss/Dockers Gap Inc./Outlet , Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy

Happy 70th Nan. Enjoy our boycott of Gay Frisco!

Lets see...OH, I got it... Lets buy her a fifth of scotch,a pork chop, and two Jack Russel terriers.

We'll get the bitch drunk, smear her face with the pork chop, and let the dogs stretch her back to normal.

No, no, no. I'd want to get something she'd actually use!

I wonder if I can get a discount from Amazon if I buy Rules For Radicals, Mein Kampf, and The Communist Manifesto together?

Dead fish. It would be hard for them to complain since that is Rahm’s favorite thing to send folks on his ‘enemies’ list. Is there a fish market in Washington that we could call to deliver some to her office?

LOL..but I am kinda serious.

Ding dong...

"Madame Speaker, I am your IRS ObamaCare Quality-of-Life Representative.
I'm here to discuss with you whether your life continues to be... beneficial to
the American people, or if you are just a drag on society.
My assessment will be fair and impartial.

May I come in?"*

*this is satire... not a threat to the old scarecrow. I personally look forward to the day she has to hand over that Gavel to a Republican.
