A friend of mine just returned from a vacation in Italy. Below is an
excerpt from an email of his to me, giving his experience of running into Queen
Pelosi over there. I wonder if she visited the location where Mussolini and his
mistress were hanged. I sense that Americans, including Democrats, are fed up
enough to buy rope.
We were also in Florence, which we loved. We were about to
stand in line at the Uffizi Museum, when about 8 police cars with sirens and
flashing lights, surrounding a couple of minivans, pulled up to the entrance. Coming out of the van, I see a couple of U.S. politicians I recognize come out
and walk right by me (I later found out it was Ed Markey of MA and George Miller
of CA). Following them was Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, who without a doubt is
the ugliest congress-critter ever. Then standing about ten feet away from me I
see Nancy Pelosi! I start booing. The Italian police fortunately didn't shoot
me, but the looks on their faces suggested that I might want to stop. They of
course went right into the museum. We ended up waiting in line in the cold for
90 minutes, while they were transacting their important government business
inside the museum.
When we were in Rome a few days later, our shuttle bus from
our hotel into town was delayed an hour, due to the police blocking the streets
because Nancy Pelosi was meeting with the Pope! That's twice she almost ruined
my vacation. Do you have any extra pikes?
