From the 'Non Compos Mentis' File

PatriotPost.US, 08-35 Congressional Democrats are pushing for a four-day workweek to “limit unnecessary commuting” in these “times of high gasoline prices.” The extra day off will not come for ordinary Americans, however, but federal bureaucrats. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said, “I believe the federal government should do all it can to ensure that federal agencies and departments are appropriately reducing gasoline consumption.” We think a little extra time off for bureaucrats could be a really good thing... but for other reasons. Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lived up to the dignity of her office this week by taunting pro-drilling protesters in Denver. In answer to signs that read “Drill Here, Drill Now,” Pelosi coyly replied, “Right here?” and “Can we drill your brains?” Heaven knows we wouldn’t find much between Pelosi’s ears. To wit, the Speaker doesn’t even know what fossil fuels are, declaring Sunday, “I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels.” Memo to Nancy: Natural gas is a fossil fuel. We think she’s just confused because she and her husband have invested so heavily in natural gas—to the tune of $50,000 to $100,000. Move along, folks. No conflict here.
