So, Are you Saying Nancy Will Be Flying Commercial?

Emails from damage-controlling Democratic fact-checkers generously point out that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi DID NOT request personal military flights to jet her and other California lawmakers between DC and the Golden State on a regular basis.
Apparently, it was the House Sergeant at Arms who offered to make the inquiry.
His name, I kid you not, is Livingood.
So Livingood offered to inquire, Pelosi accepted the offer and the wing nuts are in a big fuss about the luxury of it all.
This is how it happened, according to thinkprogress.org:

1) The House Sergeant at Arms, not Pelosi, initiated inquiries into the use of military aircraft. House Sergeant at Arms Wilson Livingood, who has served in his position since 1995, released a statement today clarifying the facts. He writes, “In December 2006, I advised Speaker Pelosi that the US Air Force had made an airplane available to Speaker Hastert for security and communications purposes following September 11, 2001.” Additionally, Livingood writes, “I offered to call the U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense to seek clarification of the guidelines [which governed Speaker Hastert’s use of a plane].”

Stay tuned:.
#1. Will Nancy fly economy or business class on the taxpayer dime?
#2. Will she go military with all the cool technology, catered meals and full bar on an even bigger taxpayer dime?
#3. Does the Speaker really need Air Force Three?
#4. How about just tossing her an iPhone for cutting edge telecom needs instead of keys to a C-40?….
#5. Ultimately, some thoughtful reflection may be called for among all of us: This situation may lift the notion of “limosine liberal” to a whole new level.
We live in interesting times…. The possibilities for exploiting this are ripe with promise for everyone’s amusement.
And thanks guys. I am sincerely grateful for the input. It’s an amusing story and it must be a slow news night for you.

    She definately needs to get out. Just moved back from Ohio, spent the last 5 years in Commiefornia. Pelois needs to go. Please let it be true and the afnciteofally called BITCH should not get any retirement pay unless it’s social security, just like everyone else. Politics was never supposed to be a career. We need to stop that crap right now. What is it going to take for Americans to stand up and say enough. We pay for people that make laws, then, make them so they don’t have to follow them. They can vote themselves a raise. That buy or tax thing is going to kill this country. And yes’ people abuse the system in welfare by taking their kids to the emergency for a check up too. What’s that about? I have personally heard people that do that say they do it for their’ convenience. What the heck are you doing besides sitting on your butt while collecting money, I, among others, paid your bills. We can barely afford our own and don’t need more money taken away from us working people. It’s hard enough to make it on my pay and there is no way I can afford to pay for medical I will not use. However, others can and will use free medical from the government. The government is supposed to be us’, not for some people by other people. If your an American, be an American and don’t hypenate it either. United we stand (and they want us divided) and divided we fall.
