8. Anybody remember how Nancy Pelosi handled it when she assumed the Speakership?

When she took the gavel, one of the first things she did as the new Speaker of the House was decree that the House work week would start on Monday morning and continue till Friday afternoon. She thought we taxpayers deserved a full work week from our representatives. And the CONS yowled and sniveled and complained, and tried to begrudge her the private jet that was assigned to Speakers of the House to fly from DC to their home districts. Thought it was terrible. She WAS Speaker of the House. As such she was TWO HEARTBEATS AWAY from the Presidency. Next in line after the Vice President. That's just who the Speaker of the House is. And there are perks and security measures taken for ALL Speakers of the House.

But these assholes dared to try to deny her those privileges that HER JOB provided - AS Speaker of the House.

But by Jove they worked, and we got some of our money's worth from these lazy entitled - and thoroughly sexist schmucks.
