She Voted For Impeachment Before...

…she voted against it? Ms. Pelosi, you are such a strange and interesting person!

"The probable new House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is in a catfight with Rep. Jane Harman for not being insane enough. Pelosi has indicated she will deny Harman the chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee, instead giving it to Rep. Alcee Hastings, whom Pelosi voted to impeach from his federal judgeship in 1988 for conspiring to extract a $150,000 bribe from convicted criminals in return for lowering their sentences.

An O.J. jury had acquitted Hastings on the bribery charge in a criminal proceeding, though his alleged co-conspirator, attorney William Borders, was convicted.

But the evidence of Hastings’ bribery plot was so overwhelming that a Democratic House voted to impeach Hastings 413-3 on 17 separate counts ? including falsifying evidence to win his acquittal in the criminal case, and a majority Democratic Senate voted to convict Hastings on the very first count by 69-26, enough to remove him from office.

Rep. John Conyers Jr. ? another finalist for the coveted “craziest Democrat in congress” title ? led the charge for Hastings’ impeachment, saying the judge had “betrayed his office.”

In addition to having a history of soliciting bribes from criminals before his court, Hastings wants to shut down Guantanamo, and he adamantly opposes the U.S. government listening to phone calls from al-Qaida phones to anyone in America (especially federal judges negotiating bribery deals by telephone).

As millions of lunatic Muslims plot to murder Americans, some Americans ? we call them “Soccer Moms” ? will cast a vote to save Michael J. Fox this year. In the process, they will put all Americans at risk by voting for a frivolous, dying party."

Ann Coulter? Ann Coulter? Oh yeah, that’s right, the same Ann Coulter that could possibly go to jail for voter fraud! Well a person of such high integrity should always be quoted as fact based when it comes to politics.

T-Nation’s version of the New York Post strikes again!

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Great thread Headhunter.

Can’t wait for the next one…“Votes for Democrats make God cry”, proved by Ann Coulter.

You’d really have to look far and wide to find someone as loathsome as Nancy Pelosi. She might be the worst thing that has yet happened in to that branch of government.

She was on TV recently defending Foley and blaming the Democrats for the whole debacle.

Wait a minute… a here it is:

Straight from the horses’ mouth.

She makes O’Reilly appear sane and reasonable. That’s probably all there is to know about Coulter.

I don’t like Nancy Pelosi at all. I agree that she is an example of a lowlife opportunist. I just thought that it was amusing that HH was using Ann Coulter to talk about Nancy Pelosi. That is like having Satan talk about the faults of another Demon.

Headhunter…Headhunter. While I am conservative, you seriously de-value your points by quoting Ann.

It’s the same lame approach used by Wreckless and JTF, quoting radical shit to stir up arguement.

Let’s make it in your own words and not sink to that level.

Millions of lunatic Muslims? Did the cunt really say that?

“they will put all Americans at risk by voting for a frivolous, dying party.”

I’d have to agree with her here. Don’t vote for a frivolous dying party guys. You’ll put all Americans at risk.

Did she say: “friendly e-mails”?
Yup, I checked, that’s what she said. Foley sent some friendly e-mails. Gotta love Ann ! ! !

Agreed. 1 crazy bitch.

Okay, okay…so we hate Annie…

How about the L.A. Times?

“Pelosi Has Informed Colleagues That She Intends To Force Harman To Step Down, Replacing Her With Rep. Alcee L. Hastings Of Florida , The Second Most Senior Democrat On The Intelligence Panel.” (Greg Miller and Richard Simon, “Harman Resists Push Off Spy Panel,” Los Angeles Times, 5/18/06)

Now, can we please NOT vote these people into power? Can you imagine the deals, the outright evil, that’s taking place behind the scenes here, for Nancy to do this? Yikes!!!

What exactly makes her so “loathsome”?

Was it when she was informed of a member’s page-diddling, yet did nothing?

Oh, wait…

your liberal bias is well known around here harris. That you would try to defend Nancy Pelosi further demonstrates your political feelings. My suggestion is that you go back and study here record. What she has voted for and what she has voted against.

Oh wait, that’s right you agree with her on these issues.

Um, go away.

What’s to hate? She’s simply a right-wing entertainer who’s schtick is to shock by upholding extreme positions. Seems to work well enough for her.

So we (or at least I) don’t hate her; but if you introduce one of her argument in a serious debate, don’t be surprised at the ensuing laughter.
