Nancy Pelosi in the hizzy
The lightning rod named Nancy Pelosi.
The U.S. House of Representatives is on recess -- but that doesn't necessarily mean its members are having fun. They'll likely spend much of their time off pimping healthcare reform -- and to that end, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- the woman with giant eyes that seem capable of boring holes through lead walls -- is making a Denver-area appearance alongside two fellow Democrats, locals Diana DeGette and Jared Polis, at the Stout Street Clinic, 2100 Broadway, at 2 p.m. Thursday. A press release promises that during the tour, Pelosi, DeGette and Polis, joined by Colorado Coalition for the Homeless CEO John Parvensky, "will see firsthand how the economic recovery funds are being used to offer vital health care services, create jobs, and lay the foundation for health insurance reform. The Speaker and Members of the Colorado Delegation will also discuss Congressional efforts to reform our nation's health insurance system."
Some recess. Will they at least get to play on the swings?
