House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can hardly blink (and the cosmetic surgery tax to pay for Obamacare died nanoseconds after the thoughtless congressional sponsor was reminded of Madame Speaker's obsession) so she knows the power of Botox, a poison that tightens skin and reduces wrinkles.
Nancy has spent the last week injecting American politics with one poisonous shot after another of rhetorical Botox to firm up support and eliminate the wrinkles of opposition to the increasingly unpopular Obama health insurance "reform."
But the Botox didn't work. Each time Pelosi increased the dose, ratcheted up the rhetoric, ordinary Americans just got madder.
Make no mistake, Nancy, the wrinkles of opposition are getting deeper. The Botox is not working. We the People will not be intimidated, marginalized or ignored.
So Nancy, hold the Botox. The Constitution does not need a facelift. It needs to be respected. We the People will be heard.
