Admit One, Nancy Pelosi
She has now moved to the head of the "needs-to-be-pimp-slapped" class after uncovering these nice tidbits from our friends at the Free Republic:
*sued President G.H.W. Bush in a bizarre attempt to let Saddam Hussein get away with taking over Kuwait.
*admitted she was "devastated" when the U.S. began its ouster of Saddam in 2003.
*called a resolution to support American troops "a bitter pill."
*whined after Saddam's defeat, "We could have probably brought down that statue for a lot less."
*in 1996 voted against a bill that would "make it easier to deport foreign terrorists."
*did a Kerry-style flip-flop on the Patriot Act, which she voted for, after opposition to it became trendy.....Even fellow liberal Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has said the ACLU could not cite one abuse of the Patriot Act.
*said in 2002 (yes, after 9/11), "I don't really consider ourselves at war."
*voted for Bill Clinton's record tax increase and against President Bush's tax relief.
*described the enormously successful welfare reform, which even Bill and Hillary Clinton backed, as a "war on the poor."
*has voted at least eight times against banning gruesome partial-birth abortions.
*has cruelly voted at least twice against the Unborn Victims of Violence Act.
