Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

My son got his toe pinched by Nancy Pelosi. Suck it, right wingers.

Through some connections on the Hill my wife was invited to a press conference given by the most powerful woman in the United States. And no, I'm not talking about Oprah; I'm talking about Nancy Fucking Pelosi -- the woman who has enough power to alter 350 million people's lives with her influence and is third in line to the president. Here she is looking at my son Elliot and reaching to give him a pinch in the toe! That's my wife Katie holding him. (Original picture here).

And my son has already got that Ann-Coulter-wannabe, Michelle Malkin, up in arms. She's ranting about it on her blog here!

Ha! Suck it, right wingers. My son had a brush with the most powerful Democrat in the world today and health care for all is close to passing the House this week -- closer than it's ever been before. Intrade is betting HCR passes by 65% this week. Life is gonna change, people. And if not, I will only be pissed at the Democrats in Congress.

Fingers crossed ...
Comments:
Pelosi = wars and bailouts = the broke/murderous America your son inherits.

Worshiping power and idols is lame especially when the woman who holds all this power hasn't done any good with it since 2006 when Dems had majority in Congress. Plus as a role model for strong women leaders, she's literally fake (all the plastic surgery).

Keep those fingers crossed.
 
Hey fuckface:

Pelosi voted against Bush's Iraq war. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Pelosi#Iraq_War

Bush lead the bailouts and I support them. Without the bailouts, we've be living in an America more resembling the 1930s. Economists of all persuasions generally agree with that fact.

Right wingers used to say this to us all the time years ago, but I say it to you now: if you hate the US so much, get the fuck out.
 
It warms my heart to know that patriotic Americans like yourself will offer your child as a political prop in this most desperate hour.
 
Anonymous: Lonnie addressed your substantive points, I will comment on your petty sniping. RE: plastic surgery, women are damned if they do and damned if they don't. People make fun of Hillary for looking her age, and they made fun of Janet Reno for looking manly. How about if we stop attacking women politicians for their appearance whatever they choose to do?
 
Candidus: get a life. My son got a fun outing where adults cooed at him and he saw new sights. When you're 4 mos old, that's a fun day. When he's older he can see the photos and whether he embraces our politics or not, it will be a funny story that he was in the news. You sound bitter and humorless, maybe your parents should've taken you out more as a toddler.

"My son got a fun outing..."

Good for him, I guess. What your son may or may not have gotten out of the experience isn't what was comment-worthy to me; rather it was what his father got out of it. The man was gushing from both ends like a bobby-socker at a Sinatra concert because someone with political power used his kid for a crass photo op.

Touched! By someone with "enough power to alter 350 million people's lives!" (sigh) "Third in line to the president!" (swoon) "The most powerful Democrat in the world today!" (cumsies)

That said, I gotta wonder whether he would've been as excited had you answered Baby Call from one of Hastert's interns.
 
Candidus,

My question is: what the fuck is a "bobby socker" and why would it be gushing at a Sinatra concert?

And man, I knew you teabaggers were bitter, but this is just silly.
 
The "crass photo op" was for the purpose of insuring millions of uninsured Americans. Our family is very excited about health insurance reform. We admire Pelosi for her many years of public service and her toughness and grace, and we were thrilled to get our own "crass photo op" to go into our photo album. This obviously upsets you. You obviously need a hobby (other than scrawling embittered comments on blogs). May I suggest birdwatching or model airplanes?
 
Lonnie and Mrs. B: Isn't it great that in our country, everyone has the right to his or her own opinion? I'm sure your son's friends will get a kick out of the picture when he gets older. Now, did you fix that head intake valve yet?
 
"The 'crass photo op' was for the purpose of insuring millions of uninsured Americans."

I figured that part out. What you need to understand is that the political specifics are irrelevant to my opinion that using a child like that is...unbecoming. I've voiced the same objection over Palin waving around her retarded children in front of the cameras, and James Lileks sending his daughter to pre-school on election day with her index finger dyed purple, to give a couple of examples.

The same applies to my lack of love for power worship. If brushes with greatness get you off, fine, but pick something better to admire than the size of the one's pimp hand.

"Our family is very excited about health insurance reform...This obviously upsets you."

Upsets? No, it takes very little for me to make with the snark these days. I am disappointed at discovering, after enjoying some of the non-political entries on this site, that your husband is, well, one of them.

Sadder still, I find that the best response he can muster is to call me a "teabagger" (which, as epithets go, is about a hackneyed today as "neocon" was in 2005) and play dumb because of a typo I'd made (c'mon, Bruner, I'm not expecting you to channel Lee Ving or anything, but I thought you were saltier than that).
 
Candidus,

You post anonymously on my blog, like the typical internet troll, so all I can go on is your frustrated and angry tone toward a polarizing left wing political figure, so guessing you are a teabagger would have been about an 80/20 chance of being accurate.

I thought it was cool that my son got his toe pinched by the Speaker of the House; apparently this triggered outrage in you.

And seriously, I have no idea what a bobby socker is. Sorry that also angers you so terribly much.

I think a movie quote is aptly applied to you here: "You are in more dire need of a blowjob than any white man in history." Seriously, relax man.

Thanks for reading.

Cheers,
Lonnie B.

Now you know better.

"And seriously, I have no idea what a bobby socker is."

In that case, I'll let you in on a little secret information gathering technique.

"Seriously, relax man."

Are you kidding? The internet is serious business.
