Nancy Pelosi is a High Flier on Our Dime

Ye gads. This woman's gall is unbelievable. The Bush administration plans to honor her request to fly on Air Force jets as a security measure, but she is still insisting on a larger craft so that she can not only fly nonstop from Washington DC to San Francisco, but also give free rides to her staff, family, and other Democrats as she feels fit.

According to the Washington Times article linked above, Pentagon officials say that Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) accused them of sexism for not immediately granting her request. Murtha's people deny it.

After 9/11, then-House Speaker Dennis Hastert was given access to military aircraft as a security measure, as the Speaker is in next line for the presidency after the vice-president. So Pelosi's initial request is not out of line. But her wanting to travel with an entourage that rivals that of the president is not only outrageous on its face, but it shows that she's far too interested in the trappings of power than is good for us, the people she is supposed to be serving.

Hmm, I understand where Murtha's coming from (well, actually I never really wanted TO, but that's another argument..)

Who would expect Ms. Pelosi NOT TO HAVE ANYTHING SHE WANTS. (see below) After all, she's...
well, she's just another elected representative in MY eyes, but IN HERS.. It seems Hillary-ism is rampant among the Democrats. Perhaps Nancy thinks SHE is the president after all..

Odd, isn't it, how easily the epithets slip out-- 'sexist,' next 'racist,' ANY "swear" term at hand when DEMOCRATS don't get their way. Please don't call it arrogance.

"The source said the Pentagon will likely give in to Mrs. Pelosi's requests for a large plane and travel entourage, given her and Mr. Murtha's power over defense spending.
The defense source, who asked not to be named, termed her request "carte blanche," saying she wanted a plane that could carry an entourage just like President Bush, who flies on Air Force One, and Vice President Dick Cheney, who also always flies on military planes."
