Porkers of the Year: Nancy Pelosi And Harry Reid

April 7, 2009

  Congratulations are in order for both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. They are the 2008 “Porker of the Year” dual award winners. These two porker supremes won the on-line poll and have taken home the prestigious award.

 Here is part of the statement from Citizens Against Government Waste, who sponsor the award:

Although both leaders have garnered rotten reviews from CAGW as well as other taxpayer watchdogs for years, like all the truly committed abusers of tax dollars, they refused to rest on their proverbial laurels

After their slacker period, and throughout early 2009, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid came roaring back when they were front and center in the legislative battle over President Obama’s so-called ‘stimulus bill,’ ginning up anxiety and fomenting panic among taxpayers at every opportunity in order to finally muster support for passage of the outrageous $787 billion plan

    Apparently both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were so moved by this award that they are speechless for once as both offices declined comment. Hopefully we will hear from them as soon as they are able to reign in the emotions they are feeling.

  But lets not forget those that tried so hard and came up just a little short, please join me in giving  Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), Rep. John Micah (R-Fla.) and Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) a round of applause. They tried their best and they deserve credit also.

  Once again let me congratulate Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid on the honor that has been bestowed upon them and let me wish them also good luck in the future as they look to defend this award. I am sure if they give it their all they will be right back here again next year.

    They are two of the most disgusting politicians to ever be in the House and Senate. Of all 535 in there now, these are the two I most want to see LOSE their seats! Barney is a close third!

      Dodd is right up there also. You may get your wish with Harry Reid, he may be in trouble.

    Is it possible to impeach senators and/or congressmen/women? Does anyone know?

    There has been one senator who was impeached. From what I understand the house of reps can bring impeachment charges up and the senate is in charge of trying the impeachment.

    I believe the state responsible for sending them there can “recall” them also.
