Ouch! This is like submitting to a pity-date with the ugly liberal chick at school and getting turned down just hours before the prom:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday rebuffed Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) invitation to sit together at the State of the Union address, informing the Republican lawmaker — via Twitter — that she had already accepted an invitation from another colleague from across the aisle, Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.).
Here’s Pelosi’s turndown:
This whole DC prom situation is fairly nauseating, but what I wouldn’t give to be a beer goggles salesman at this little soiree tonight.
What do you all think about inviting victims of the Tucson shooting (and some of their relatives) to sit in the First Lady’s box tonight?
The 50 or more members of Congress participating in this “bipartisan seating” love-fest (and they called reading the Constitution on the House floor a “stunt”?) have already virtually admitted the shootings were politically motivated, so some Republicans have played completely into the left’s hands on this. I won’t be surprised to see Lisa Murkowski in a “Together We Thrive” t-shirt before the night is through.
Later I’ll start another thread for anybody who wants to drop by and comment on and/or mock the proceedings.
