Video: Reid puts a squeeze on Pelosi’s shoulder

posted at 10:39 am on April 25, 2007 by Ian

Nancy Pelosi’s Angela Merkel moment:


For some reason, I don’t think the liberal blogs will get upset, or even give this a moment of their time. Or analyze it, shot-by-shot.

Found this via Allah, who found a lively discussion going on about it at DU. For the most part, DUers don’t like Reid because he’s a “wimp.” That’s code for “to the right of Stalin.”

I still say that Reid has “take my lunch money” written all over him. With a big “L” on his forehead.

Update (AP): You can think ace tipster RLW for the DU link. It’s a barnburner!

Dear IAN,
I feel compelled, yet again, in this, my 3,267 note of complaint…

Just kidding.

Reid was just making an attempt to be warm and comforting, and he came across as remarkably human-like this time.

Slublog on April 25, 2007 at 10:44 AM

There are few people in this world I really hate, and this guy is one of them.

MySkyIsBlue on April 25, 2007 at 10:44 AM

He should have held her by the waist to satisfy any fantasy that he had in mind. Bush just brought out the best out of democrats.

Ouabam on April 25, 2007 at 10:45 AM

I don’t see what the big deal is. I didn’t think it was a big deal when Bush put his hand on Merkle’s shoulder, either. It’s just a way to be friendly. Hell, down here we are all really kissy-kissy. it would probably gross out a northerner.

pullingmyhairout on April 25, 2007 at 10:48 AM

Ugh. The image subtitle on the front page gave me the willies. I REALLY don’t need the mental image of Reid invading Pelosi’s “personal space”. Bleah!

wearyman on April 25, 2007 at 10:49 AM

Actually, Reid was just about to break into a chorus of “Kumbaya”, which requires hands on the shoulder, so….

Wow. Even the DUs don’t like him. That’s gotta suuuuuuucccckkk.

amerpundit on April 25, 2007 at 10:51 AM

I don’t know.

If you can get by the weaselly, whiny, snarky, cretinous, dishonest traits, Hairy’s alright.

Nancy looks hot in the pic, sometimes she looks really good.

Like a 60′s James Bond babe.

Lol

There is nothing like being open-minded. Somebody is in love with Nancy.

Ouabam on April 25, 2007 at 11:05 AM

It was condescending to her, if anything.

As for the Bond babe idea, I get visitors all the time looking for nekkid photos of her, or at least “cleavage.”

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on April 25, 2007 at 11:11 AM

At my old Corporate America job, this would have been considered “inappropriate touching,” and his skinny white butt would have been “walked off the property.”

georgej on April 25, 2007 at 11:12 AM

One of Dingy Harry’s unhinged constituents tore up a GOP office in Vegas.

I blame Reid for this climate of hate.

I just threw up a little in my mouth.

amerpundit on April 25, 2007 at 11:14 AM

One of the few moments on The Daily Show not devoted to bashing all things non-democrat. Anybody else watch Jon Stewart go all Tucker Carlson on Mcain? He badgered the shit out of him. I think Stewart is becoming what he has always claimed to loathe.

commonsensehoosier on April 25, 2007 at 11:16 AM

Jammie, it’s still on the front page of Drudge. That’s where I found it. Hopefully, that means the MSM will cover it! HAHAHA! Yeah, right.

amerpundit on April 25, 2007 at 11:16 AM

Two losers…morons…should be tried for treason…

Can you imagine their ‘leadership’ on D-Day at Omaha Beach…???…

From this day on…they have ‘blood’ on their hands…

areseaoh on April 25, 2007 at 11:17 AM

Is it just me, or does Naaaancy Pelosi remind anyone else of that facial recognition robot?

americaslaststand on April 25, 2007 at 11:18 AM

facial recognition robot

Yeha, like an android in Westworld…

Couldn’t put my finger on it…she looks like something out of a 70′s sci-fi tv show.

Think John Saxon on the Six Million DOllar Man…waxy.

Ted Kennedy could give you a few pointers.

amerpundit on April 25, 2007 at 11:21 AM

Nancy isn’t happy. She doesn’t like sharing her camera time or being patronized by a man. She’s got that whole mouth thing going again.

ctmom on April 25, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Nancy looks hot in the pic, sometimes she looks really good.

benrand on April 25, 2007 at 10:54 AM

Copy that, Ben. I think the critics here who feign disinterest in Speaker Pelosi as a woman are disingenuous. She’s a lovely rich girl, and the surgeries have been nicely done, I think.

She’s also got quite a pair of ta-tas, and I wonder if she had them done, along with her nose, the facelifts, and the tuck. She looks great; dumber than a bag of hammers, but very attractive.

And if News and Curt were being honest, they would admit that this is the kind of girl they used to date in school…dumb and pretty.

Jaibones on April 25, 2007 at 11:37 AM

The weasel can have her (as far as I am concerned). I vastly prefer a woman that has her head screwed on straight.

CyberCipher on April 25, 2007 at 11:50 AM

Somebody with photoshop needs to do a pic of Pelosi’s cleavage with Assad’s signature on them.

csdeven on April 25, 2007 at 11:52 AM

Horny old bastid.

benrand on April 25, 2007 at 10:54 AM

Reid gone incognito posting on HotAir?

infidel4life on April 25, 2007 at 11:53 AM

csdeven on April 25, 2007 at 11:52 AM

There you go; that’s the bi-partisan spirit!

Jaibones on April 25, 2007 at 11:59 AM

And in keeping up with the news, wouldn’t you rather see MM in the cheerleader skirt and debate Pelosi’s relative attractiveness than look at pictures of Fat Rosie holding her crotch and yelling “Eat Me!” ?

I mean, wouldn’t you?

Jaibones on April 25, 2007 at 12:06 PM

Jaibones,

You need to check your med’s and get a new pair of glasses.

Rock on……………

Yeah, she looks decent for an old babe. She’s old enoguh to be my mother.

Plenty of stupid liberal girls and women who look good, dumb as rocks, but not bad looking.

benrand on April 25, 2007 at 12:31 PM

He interrupted her mid sentence to shut her up. Watch it again. It was the equivalent of a kick under the table. Why? Was she heading down a road he didn’t want her to go?

TheBigOldDog on April 25, 2007 at 12:32 PM

One last thought on the subject: isn’t Pelosi the American equivalent of France’s Segolene Royal? Leftist, nitwit, not unattractive (except for that nervous clenched jaw thing), designer suits…

Jaibones on April 25, 2007 at 1:08 PM

TBOD, copy that.

Dorian, I’ve been off the meds for weeks, now. Wait…

Jaibones on April 25, 2007 at 1:09 PM

Hmmmmmmmmmm…nancy and surgery…her face does look plastic…wonder why mrs billy clinton hasn’t done anything about her ankles…just thinking out loud…

areseaoh on April 25, 2007 at 1:26 PM

F*king traitorous tools. If she wants to wind down the war, then turn up the heat on the jihadists and lets get this over with.

They talk in looooooooow sooooooooothing tooooooones. I guess they really really really are sincere about America’s best interests. Idiots.

Mallard T. Drake on April 25, 2007 at 1:38 PM

Cold dead hand gets cold shoulder.

Global warming momentarily stifled.

fogw on April 25, 2007 at 1:42 PM

I think Pelosi blinks allot when she’s stressed out or pissed off!

Egfrow on April 25, 2007 at 1:48 PM

Dude, I’m no Stewart fan, but you cut off his comments which were hilarious. The only reason I’ve seen it is because Hume closed Special Report with it yesterday.

Seriously Ian or Allah, if you can get the clip that includes Stewart’s comments that followed, you’ve gotta post it!

RightWinged on April 25, 2007 at 1:56 PM

Don’t criticize him…he’s merely playing the part of the strong man comforting his womenfolk.

I concluded a very long time ago that the true sexists and those who marginalize women are libs. You wouldn’t see him putting his arm around Teddy, now would you?

serenevalley on April 25, 2007 at 2:00 PM

That’s a 1950s way of telling a woman to stop talking.
It’s the shoulder stifle.

Pelosi blinks out Morse code when her mouth is shut.

Hening on April 25, 2007 at 2:20 PM

I think she was pissed about being interrupted, rather than the hand on her shoulder.

mikeyboss on April 25, 2007 at 2:43 PM

I still say that Reid has “take my lunch money” written all over him.

I started protecting kids from bullies in H.S. after I grew five inches taller over one summer (I would make an exception for harry and stand aside).

I’m a little rusty, but I think she is blinking. “He only used one square, and his finger is on my shoulder!”

Harry R looks like my high school chemistry teacher, with the same Perv weak-jawed quivvering old-man voice and creepy half-smile

Janos Hunyadi on April 25, 2007 at 4:40 PM

Janos, nobody said they liked Harry’s ta-tas… Get real.

Jaibones on April 25, 2007 at 5:34 PM

I doubt Harry Reid has anything over other cross-dressers.

gary on April 25, 2007 at 5:49 PM

Not only did Madam Big Whip not like being interrupted, but the look also has that bit of disdain: “Hey, Mr. Not-In-Line, Do…Not…Touch the 2nd-In-Line.”

RightWinged on April 25, 2007 at 1:56 PM

Okay, looks like my wish (for other readers’ benefit) won’t come true, so I’ll paraphrase what I remember Stewert saying at the end – “Who knew the Senate was being run by my drunk uncle McFeely” – Then Stewart made like a drunk guy, miming grabbing someone saying “you know why I love you?”

RightWinged on April 25, 2007 at 11:20 PM

I wonder if Harry Reid ever sees/hears himself…

This was like “News from the Dumb, pretending to be Somebody”.
