San Francisco to rename street after Pelosi
Washington Examiner ^ | May 21, 2012 | Conn Carroll

Posted on 05/21/2012 10:32:09 AM PDT by y6162

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will rename a street after former-Speaker Nancy Pelosi today in Golden Gate Park.

"Middle Drive East" which connects Martin Luthjer King Jr. Drive and John F Kennedy Drive in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park will now be renamed in honor of Pelosi and her 25 years of service in Congress.

You have to drive on it to find out what street it is.

At least we can begin a “Piss on Pelosi” street whilst waiting for our chance to piss on her grave.

Is it a dead end?

Or a one way street with no right turns?

Seriously, the jokes write themselves here

Any Speaker of the House who tells the American people “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it” is not worth taking seriously about anything, and certainly, in a sane locale, would not be given any sort of honor at all.

It will surely need speed bumps, frequent repaving, pothole patrols, frost heave warning signs, turtle crossings and a left lane only.

“Dead End” is what I was thinking. A much better, more realistic name for a street in San Francisco, ‘cause ulimately that is where the road they take will lead.

I read that as Middle East Dr.

The thing I remember most about SF was watching the evening news showing the gays raiding Fredericks of Hollywood. They emptied it to the bare walls. We had just left that area an hour before because we didn’t want to be out on Halloween. If there was any city that should have a street named after Pelosi, SF is it.

More appropriate would have been to name the off-ramp to Treasure Island after her.

True story.

I ended up on a one way street in Jacksonville Flordia that intersected a cross street that was one way both ways.

It was three streets meeting, no matter which way you went at the intersection, you were going the wrong way.

That is exactly how any street named after San Fran Nan should be set up.

“we have to pass the ..." ...in a sane locale, would not be given any sort of honor at all.

My first thought on her bs.

I guess Baltimore can be overlooked because they named a street after her when she became the first female speaker, before she showed her true idiocy.

Now I hate to tell such a plain truth, but I must — the bulk of San Francisco’s liberality seems sometimes actuated by a love of applause. She don’t always take kindly to a good deed for a good deed’s sake, but pat her on the head, and flatter her, and say Bully, bully, bully, is the great Metropolis of the Pacific, and she will break her neck trying to accomplish that good deed. You get Dr. Bellows to glorify her princely liberality in ten telegraphic sentences, at forty cents a word, and down they come with $20,000 for the Sanitary Fund! They always respond when ‘Glory’ calls but they are sometimes slow to respond when they are not going to be applauded.
- quoted in “False to Thee,” San Francisco Daily Dramatic Chronicle, 16 January 1866, p. 2. (”Mark Twain”).
San Francisco liberals often “do it for the glory” of being applauded, but seldom try to help you, or any other human being, otherwise. Indeed, it can be a very cold, unwelcoming city despite all its “liberal” pretenses.

I drive on that street every day going to and coming back from work. They re-paved it a few months ago. Now I know why. Yuck!

I didn’t think they’d be allowed to use profanity on a street sign, but once again San Francisco proves that anything goes there.
