Nancy {hearts} Antonio

Posted: February 9, 2018 by fausta1 in Uncategorized

Nancy Pelosi spent eight hours babbling on the House floor the other day, presumably over DACA.

Now, DACA has become the Dems’ favorite issue. How can the mean Republicans not want to love the idea that persons who are breaking the law should leapfrog and be given preference over foreigners who are spending time and treasure in the legal immigration process? The Republicans must be racist!

After all, even Nancy’s six year old grandson wants to look like Antonio!

NANCY PELOSI: I’m reminded of my own grandson. He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Italian] side of the family, shall we say.
And when he had his sixth birthday… he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he’s from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?
He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.

What is it with Dems that makes them inject their progeny when they attempt to make a political point?

How many times have we heard, “How do I explain Donald Trump to my four year old?” Are we supposed to believe four year olds are precocious enough to dip their tiny toes into the political swamp on their own?

Excuse my skepticism, but I’m more inclined to believe that Nancy’s grandson is more enthused about orbiting Mars in a Tesla than he is about looking like he has a nice tan and his grandmother’s brown eyes. Especially since Antonio, Guatemalan as he may be, could as well look Sicilian, name and all.

The result is that Nancy ends up sounding like Greta Ohlsson in the 1974 version of Murder on the Orient Express:

I was born backwards. That is why I work in Africa as missionary, teaching little brown babies more backwards than myself.

As it turned out, Even House Dems Wonder: What Was The Point Of The Pelosi Filibuster? Could it be that

Pelosi wanted to make herself look good for the cameras at the expense of her caucus

Too bad Greta Ohlsson didn’t think of that.

Congress faster than GoDaddy

Yesterday was a bad day for meeting deadlines CPAC is rapidly coming and I still a bunch of new business cards for a show forced to reruns and a site that isn’t there.

Meanwhile in Washington, Pelosi’s droning not withstanding, the final budget deal, while in place,  had still not passed and the clock was ticking to midnight.

I had spent every free moment removing every single big of graphics data from 2011-2014 I went back to talk to godddy to see if I had jumped though enough of their hoops to get datechguyblog back up.  I was informed in chat at 2:45 pm yesterday that the site suspension was off and it would be back up in 24 hours.  I had to head to work and I don’t have a smart phone or net access so I decided to worry about it when I got home.

When I did things much as when I left, Rand Paul being at least consistent had held up thinks in the senate and nothing had passed in the house, meanwhile, my wife still could not breathe if she lay down and I still had no site.  So I figured I’d sleep on it and when I woke up I’d check again.

Well after a coughing fit (I never said I was well yet) and some errands it’s 10:42 AM my site is not up set as Godaddy seems determined to make me wait the full 24 twenty four hours but things have moved in congress:

The House has been working on the legislation since 2:30amET. The Freedom Caucus is not expected to sign on to the bill. Some Democrats like clown Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) are also not going to support the bill: “So today, they are going to bring over from the Senate a proposal, they are going to lift the caps and they’re going to say, let’s vote on our budget. Well, I say to everybody — don’t collude with this administration,” Gutierrez said. “Vote against the budget.” Maybe he should leave office, because his job is to work with the administration and it looks like he doesn’t want to do that job.

Developing…

EDITED TO ADD: The House passed the bill, it’s about 5:40amET.

So here we are, Godaddy has managed to move slower than congress.

That’s quite a feat

Nancy’s little anecdote reminds of Greta Ohlsson in the 1974 version of Murder on the Orient Express,

I was born backwards. That is why I work in Africa as missionary, teaching little brown babies more backwards than myself.

As it is, Even House Dems Wonder: What Was The Point Of The Pelosi Filibuster?

Could it be that

Pelosi wanted to make herself look good for the cameras at the expense of her caucus

Too bad Greta Ohlsson couldn’t think of that.
