Speaker Pelosi Declares Planet Saved; OKs Vote on Drilling

By John Lillpop

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has abandoned her role as savior of the planet in favor of a much higher spiritual calling: Election year politics.*

Speaker Nancy Pelosi With 75 percent of the American people demanding an end to the ban on off shore drilling, and with polls indicating that gas prices and energy are important issues moving in favor of Republicans, the speaker was able to adjust her priorities and thinking accordingly.

Her reasoning:

"Planet Earth needs me and a veto proof Democrat majority in the House, and a filibuster-proof Democrat majority in the Senate, in order to save the planet.

"Therefore, in the interest of saving the planet, I will yield on the drilling issue, at least until Obama and fellow socialists take over the US government.

"However, once the elections are in the books, I promise to get back to work for the citizens of the world by shutting down all drilling and outlawing the combustion engine in America.

"Take that, Cindy Sheehan!"

And so it is with spiritual callings from on high in an election year!
