Marie Antoinette Has Been Fired!
Marie Antoinette has been fired! The American people have spoken and Nancy Pelosi has been replaces as Speaker of the House. I could have just as easily titled this piece “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”, but I might get called insensitive for such a thing. We know how I would hate that.
Comparing Nancy Pelosi to Marie Antoinette is probably not fair; not fair to Marie Antoinette. The phrase “Let them eat cake” is really just a journalistic cliché and it has never been proven that she actually said such a thing. “We have to pass it to see what is in it” however is attributed, without a shadow of a doubt, to Nancy Pelosi. One remark being just as ignorant as the other. Whereas Marie Antoinette is generally considered a dupe, in spite of being a queen, she is not comparable to one of the most powerful Speakers of the House. Marie Antoinette was tried and convicted of treason, and I personally would not mind seeing Nancy Pelosi following her lead on that count. Her blatant disregard for the Constitution should be considered nothing short of treason.
The “reign of terror” is over now, though. Not a moment too soon either. We still have a lot of work to do taking back our country, but at least for now the House is taken care of. Hopefully, now, we can restore respect for our Constitution. There are still plenty of dangerous representatives and Senators out there in spite of the gains made during this mid-term election. We still have to worry about the Barney Franks and Harry Reids. In other words, our work is nowhere near done. We have to continue to push for accountability in our elected representatives. We still have to repeal Nancy Pelosi’s pet project: Health Care reform. It will be a difficult task considering the Nancy Pelosi is still in the House of Representatives. We cannot let up. Not now. There is still too much work to be done. The mid-term election was just the first step in getting our country back.
