"I think we should respect the work we do," Pelosi said.

At least one person is really impressed with Nancy Pelosi.

Now we know what that bright light streaking across the San Fran bay was last night......every last shred of decency leaving Pelosi’s soul.

That’s impossible. Nancy Pelosi has no dignity to ruin.

We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it is not worthy of dignity, let alone a raise.

Yeah, well you're a public servant. Now could you kinda hurry, and get over to the Senate...the floors over there really need to be scrubbed.

She has no dignity. She’s a rich b!tch who is used to having her own way, and to heck with anyone not in her immediate circle of corrupt cronies.

A fig! A FIG BE UPON HER, I say!

Dignity? The bitch is the one that claimed Congress must pass the ObamaDeathcare bill in order to read what’s in it. That’s is her definition of dignity??? She should have her paycheck cut to zero!

When a Democrat says it’s not the money but her dignity as the principle at issue—you can be sure it’s the money.

This may sound mean but I do think it is time to hold all office holders for the past 10 years or so, liable for the mess the country is in. At least on a federal level but I see some cities and states that could use this too.

I think that people who have lined their pockets or have voted to remove monies from the voters pockets should stand trial and have to pay back what they stole. In other words put them into bankruptcy.

I really wish I hadn't clicked on this thread, enough to ruin the rest of my day.

Nancy’s ship Dignity sailed a long time ago.

Nan, what is “dignified” about being a member of a Congress that has a 9% approval rating?

There probably are hookers in Vegas with more satisfied customers (and more honest appreciation of them,too)

If this doesn’t make you want to pick up a torch and pitchfork, nothing will:
Obama to hire $1,000 an hour golf pro while on his (clearing throat) bachelor vacation.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/02/15/Obama-Hires-Americas-Top-Golf-Teacher
“The only other possibility is that the media will tell us that Obama hiring the number-one golf teacher in the world represents Obama “creating a job.”

Yeah, Williams, Matthews & Co. will tell us the president is busy with `job creation’ even while puttering around.
When he said *we* will all have to make sacrifices, he meant `you’.
Pick up the pace, galley slaves—USSA’s captain wants to water-ski!

I assume he is paying for this with his own monies.

Of course the transport and vetting of this golf pro costs the federal government money.

Okay. Let's not ruin her dignity that way.

Let's do it by cuffing her hands behind her back, bending her over a stump, pulling down her underwear, and beating her backside with a sjambok. Live. On network, cable and internet.

Even have the bumper sticker slogan:

RUIN NAN'S DIGINITY THE RIGHT WAY. USE A SJAMBOK.

"I think it's necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded."

Our children and grandchildren will suffer for generations because of Pelosi's destruction. She should be very grateful that the job she does is not recognized appropriately:
