Speaker Nancy Pelosi encountered some of the proletariat at the DNC Convention in Denver who demanded action on energy. It didn't exactly go well:
House Democratic leaders and protesters waving McCain signs had a war of words Tuesday at a press event outside an old train station. The demonstrators interrupted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with chants of “Drill here! Drill now!”
Pelosi paused and asked the group, “Right here?”
Seeming to enjoy the back and forth, she followed with another question: “Can we drill your brains?”
She went on to refer to the protestors, who continued to chant sporadically, as “handmaidens of Big Oil.” Arguing that increased offshore drilling would only reduce gas prices two cents in 10 years, she referred to the demonstrators as the “two-cents-in-ten-years-crowd.”
I laughed when I heard that she said she was from the streets, but I have been proven wrong, my friends. I imagine Ice-T in his day would have reacted in a similar fashion.
