One Speaker Resigns – Another Should Follow.
For the first time in over three centuries the Speaker of the House of Commons in the Palace of Westminster, the Mother of all Parliaments has resigned. Good, but too little too late for myriad reasons. Whilst he is a personable chap, fellow Glaswegian Great Britain’s Michael Martin outstayed his welcome as Speaker finally bowed to pressure over the Members of Parliament expenses controversy and rightly so.
At least Mr. Martin did the right thing though he had to be dragged (as they all do).
Which leads us to Ms. Pelosi…the current Speaker of the House of Representatives and third in line to be Commander in Chief of the United States who has lied repeatedly in public and private regarding CIA advice on Gitmo and interrogation of terrorist detainees.
Nancy Sinatra had a song ‘These boots are made for walking”. Yes they are and, Madam Speaker, after stepping in it with those boots you should certainly take a walk. Let’s just take a look at the lyrics of said song:
“You keep lying, when you oughta be truthin'
and you keep losin' when you oughta not bet.
You keep samin' when you oughta be changin'.
Now what's right is right, but you ain't been right yet.
You keep playin' where you shouldn't be playin
and you keep thinkin' that you´ll never get burnt.
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.”
Speaker Pelosi, please take some advice from your namesake and walk.
