Nancy Pelosi: ‘Tell Me More About My Eyes’

From a bemused Politico:

Pelosi edits honorary resolution…on Pelosi

February 24, 2011

The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor Nancy Pelosi Thursday — but its praise wasn’t good enough for the House minority leader.

When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.

That would be Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, who helps run the American Federation Of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) PAC.

"I have some friendly amendments," said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee.

"You think I’m kidding," Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.

First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was "why she went to Congress." Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her "accomplishments for equality," mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of "don’t ask, don’t tell" in December.

‘Tell me more about my eyes. Dammit.’ And what noble achievements these were.

And yet we heard ad nausea when Ms. Pelosi was stepping down as House Speaker last year, that this wasn’t about her. That she has no ego.

"Finally, since, as she said, ‘I’m not going anywhere,’ she wanted to add, in the final ‘whereas’ clause, ‘…and will continue the fight for America’s working families,’" Christine Pelosi said.

"Working families" = union in Dem speak.

The committee applauded that point, and approved the amended resolution on a voice vote.

The Pelosi resolution, submitted by a roster of Democratic luminaries headed by DNC Chairman Tim Kaine, was one of dozens of ceremonial acts considered by the committee, on such topics as praising President Obama’s State of the Union address, honoring the victims of January’s Tucson shootings and memorializing Elizabeth Edwards. Most of the resolutions were approved without changes.

The Democrat Party really are just like the Politburo. But without the Politburo’s quiet dignity.

    Honor me. I’m great. See how great I am. Or like the old joke… “She’s great, and if you don’t believe me just ask her.” More proof (as if anyone needed it) that Princess P has no class.
