Princess Nancy Joins Cleopatra on Her Barge

and Hertage has this to say about the "wealthy lawyers in Brooks Brothers suits who have hijacked the healthcare takeover:

The American people have done a tremendous job this August educating their elected leaders on the fact that they have no desire for government-run health care. And they have every right to believe that President Obama’s “public option” will achieve exactly that. Earlier this year, The Lewin Group released a study showing that under the July 15th draft of Obamacare, enrollment in the public option would reach 103.4 million people including about 83.4 million people who would lose their private insurance and be nudged onto the public plan. But also in July, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) then released their own analysis showing that only 11 million people would enroll in the public plan. How can these numbers be off by a factor of ten? The answer demonstrates just how dangerous the creation of any public plan really is, no matter how small it is initially.

But where is that barge, you might ask? Its over there, in de-Nile.

Scott Ott's Examiner Scrappleface: Pelosi slams Sept. 8 'AstroTurf' gathering in D.C.

News fairly unbalanced. We report. You decipher.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., today warned Americans that an upcoming health care reform gathering in Washington, D.C., would be comprised of "nothing but bought-and-paid-for minions of dozens of special interest groups ranging from Big Pharmaceutical to the trial lawyers. They are not who they'll appear to be."

You're right Princess Nan, we are not who we appear to be. We are actually a bunch of highly pissed off Americans who will not allow you to soicialize 20% of the NAtion's economy.

"This is AstroTurf on steroids," Rep. Pelosi said. "You'll see them in Brooks Brothers suits, cloaked in fake outrage, acting as if they're speaking on behalf of average Americans. But behind the scenes, the nation's best-funded lobbying groups are pulling all the strings."

Oh dear, where to start with this one? I guess we'll all need to give Princess Nan a urine sample to prove we're not on steroids. My fake outrage cloak is at the cleaners. We are above-average Americans. The only strings being pulled are the ones your puppet-masters have tied to your scrawny little ass.

The gathering, set to start Sept. 8 on Capitol Hill, will call together participants from every state in the union for "a cynical exercise in plastic Democracy," she said.

I don't even know what that means, and the more I try to understand it, the more my head hurts. Where's my duct tape?

"They'll claim to represent the voice of the people," said Pelosi, "but you'll be hard-pressed to find a single 'typical American' among them. Most of them are wealthy. Many are lawyers. Every last one of them had his trip to Washington funded by forces that have their own business interests at heart, rather than the will of the people, or the protection of the Constitution."

You hear that, friends? We are now wealthy lawyers, who didn't have to pay anything for this little outing to the heart of freedom, the seat of democracy, The Shining City on the Hill.

The speaker noted that citizens watching the gathering on C-Span on Sept. 8 would hear "impassioned speeches expressing apparent outrage about health care by people who pretend to be mainstream Americans.

"Don't believe them," she warned. "Virtually every word they say is scripted by the very groups that stand to benefit most from changes in the U.S. health care system."

Rep. Pelosi projected the size of the 'unruly mob' at roughly 435.

Oh boy, is she going to be surprised.
