Bart Gordon quotes WH spokesman Tony Snow to end the stupidity of Nancy Pelosi's plane ride...It's sophomoric, but our media loves it. And get a load of Rep. McHenry suddenly hugging Global warming and using it as an excuse to attack Pelosi and the plane...

McHenry: ...if we want to combat Global warming, then why should as an institution we allow one person to use a 737 for a 300,000 dollar trans-continental flight...

Barney Frank shows up at the end and says"...As I was walking by I thought I heard someone yelling, "the plan boss, the plane,"and I wanted to come in and see what was happening...

Rep. McHenry to world: I don’t wear lifts on my shoes...

SNOW: I’ll just repeat our position, which is, as Speaker of the House, she is entitled to military transport, and that the arrangements, the proper arrangements are being made between the Sergeant of Arms office in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Department of Defense. We think it’s appropriate, and so, again, I think this is much ado about not a whole lot. It is important for the Speaker to have this kind of protection and travel. It was certainly appropriate for Speaker Hastert. So we trust that all sides will get this worked out.
