San Fran Nanny State

Sphere: Related Content

Nancy Pelosi has been the most ineffective Speaker of the House in decades. Right now you figure she should be coming up with ways to get rid of earmarks like she promised or maybe writing another resolution calling for our defeat in Iraq. No, Pelosi is on a much more important mission, a mission that is more pressing than anything:

A new rule banning the sale of tobacco products on House of Representatives grounds has got Capitol Hill smokers — we hate to say it — smoking mad.

“The health nannies’ arbitrary ban on a legal and heavily taxed product bodes ill for the future marketing of Mountain Dew and MoonPies,” said Rep. Thaddeus G. McCotter, an infuriated Republican, and smoker, from Michigan.

“This is silly ‘feel good’ crap by a bunch of do-gooders,” barked a high-level Democratic staffer (also a smoker). “We should be worried about the housing crisis, the unemployment rate and the national debt instead of making staffers walk four blocks to buy a pack of smokes.” We should have seen this coming.
That sums up Pelosi's reign and the Democrats as a whole--pass no laws of any substance to speak of but infringe on the rights of smokers and those who like a good burger because she only wants to keep them healthier. A sign of things to come should we unfortunately see Obama or Hillary get elected. Liberals are so damn irritating.

Well, at least she's not spending time planning are withdrawal and pulling defeat out of the jaws of victory.
