I've had some people asking who is this Nancy, in regard to what I had posted this morning as a joke, called The Contest!

Here is a brief run down of Nancy .
Which I found on the internet.

Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi (born March 26, 19 40) is the current Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. She is a member of the Democratic Party. Before being elected Speaker in the 110th Congress, she was the House Minority Leader from 2003 to 2007, holding the post during the 108th and 109th Congresses.

Since 1987, she has represented the 8th Congressional District of California, which consists of four-fifths of the City and County of San Francisco. The district was numbered as the 5th during Pelosi's first three terms in the House.

With her election as Speaker, she is the first female Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. She is also the first Italian-American and first Californian to serve as Speaker. She is the second Speaker from a state west of the Rocky Mountains, with the first being Washington's Tom Foley, who was the last Democrat to hold the post before Pelosi. As Speaker of the House, Pelosi is second in the line of presidential succession, following Vice President Joe Biden, which makes her the highest-ranking female politician in United States history.



I'm assuming the joke is assuming since she is in politics, she lies. But then you know what they say about assuming?

Since we are human we ALL lie either by commission or omission.

Assuming! Like
"Paddy followed a muck cart 'cos he thought (assumed) it was a wedding"
Things might not always be as we assume.

Glad you cleared the mystery up of your earlier post, I can go to bed in peace now and stop thinking about it.
Love Granny

Hahaha! Well, I think it's funny! But then, I'm not a Democrat, I'm an Independent!

Sorry, I couldn't resist the giggles, especially when it comes to Nancy Pelosi.

Just me!
