San Fran Nan and the Pork-powered Prius

Gag me with a Prius.
"After making headlines with her visit to Syria, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi winds up her Easter Recess on Friday by coming to Seattle for an immersion session on new and alternative sources of energy. Pelosi will visit the headquarters of...companies involved in developing tidal power, expanding the Northwest's use of wind energy, extracting liquid natural gas from landfills, and building high pressure turbines that will pump carbon dioxide from power plants back into the ground."

Gee. Kind of sounds like the eructations emanating from Nancy's piehole. Too bad we can't harness all the chit coming out of her. And about that PRIUS? It's powered by PORK...

(Seattle Wa) Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., who backed Pelosi's rise in the House leadership, said the Northwest "has a tremendous amount to show" in development of alternatives to the carbon fuel-burning economy. "I hope she goes away from this area convinced that we are one of the leaders of the country in biodiesel, wind and all the other things going on. We're a place that's actually doing things rather than talking about what we might do." McDermott joked about how the Washington congressional delegation is walking its talk on fuel efficiency.

"It's the only delegation with three Priuses in it," said the Seattle congressman. McDermott, Inslee and Rep. Brian Baird, D-Wash., drive the fuel-efficient automobiles.
