All uniforms look the same! Gee already.

Just as long as they don’t try to recruit in her schools, fly over her head or park a big warship in the river, then she is all for it.

That’s why they’re called uniforms.

James on June 22, 2007 at 12:07 PM

LOL… thats pretty dang amusing… in a very sad way.

Romeo13 on June 22, 2007 at 12:11 PM

Military people all look the same to them.
Evil.
Protecting their right to be ignornant little specs.

bbz123 on June 22, 2007 at 12:12 PM

Really, how can we fault her for missing a detail like that? It’s like asking somebody to know if the dead animal in the backyard is a possum or just a really big rat. It’s all icky anyway!

Blacklake on June 22, 2007 at 12:14 PM

Pelosi only used a Canadian because her staff couldn’t find a Al Queda freedom fighter in a military uniform.

doriangrey on June 22, 2007 at 12:19 PM

Seriously though, these people are a branch in our government and can’t be bothered to find a picture of one of our own?

I’m outraged that an elected official does not spend enough time personally vetting images that go on her website, outraged!

brewt on June 22, 2007 at 12:21 PM

Hey it’s all Pravda right?

AZPatriot on June 22, 2007 at 12:25 PM

The only time most of her constituents would be near a uniform is if they were about to spit on it. Disgraceful but typical.

You could perhaps be outraged that she hires people who are this clueless about the military she claims to support.

James on June 22, 2007 at 12:27 PM

He, the Canadian soldier, is merely doing a job regular Americans won’t and he speaks English. Unless he is from Quebec in which case the speaks the liberals favorite language, Fwench.
See while you were paying all the attention to the southern border the Candian army has invaded and taken us over. We didn’t have enough National Guard troops at home to protect us.
/meanwhile the lyrics to the song “Here in the real world” have become stuck in my head.

LakeRuins on June 22, 2007 at 12:30 PM

Flying around on her Air Force skylimo you would think somebody had a photo of a U.S. uniform. Or don’t they bother taking photos of cretins and war criminals?

Limerick on June 22, 2007 at 12:31 PM

Dear Ms. Pelosi,

I wish to thank you for increase Canadian Soldier veteran funding. I’m sure it will go a long way to increase the number of votes you receive from Canadian Veterans. However, although we do appreciate the additional funding, I don’t think you are currently eligble for election to the House Of Commons. Perhaps you were hoping for an appointment to our Senate, where you would be able to only attend a minimum of 20% of sitting days, and never have to worry about being re-elected.

In any case, may I suggest that instead of funding our veterans, perhaps you might find some veterans closer to home.

SIncerly,
CIRD

Well it could been worse. It could have been John Travolta in his faux pilots uniform.

LakeRuins on June 22, 2007 at 12:35 PM

And it’s the first image in the slideshow.

Nice, what a slap in the face. Wonder if she knows anyone in the military.

She probably does when asked, can’t be Miss Important without having all the fucking answers.

benrand on June 22, 2007 at 12:36 PM

Actualy its simpler than that…

They knew that any American Service Persons picture they would use would bring them to task for using that picture… ie, being associated with Pelosiism… so they HAD to use some other countries.

Romeo13 on June 22, 2007 at 12:37 PM

The woman has no shame.

Is that the new hiring criterion for web monkeys?

What they need to do is filter out employees who don’t understand “attention to detail.”

brewt on June 22, 2007 at 12:45 PM

Pelosi has no idea what our uniforms look like let alone what our medical issues are. What a wonderful woman . . . she just makes me so proud to be an American.

rplat on June 22, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Maybe she needs to schedule another appointment with the chinless opthamolist in Syria, Assad.

LakeRuins on June 22, 2007 at 12:51 PM

Find time to say a “Palomino!!!” for the Human Ashtray, today.

Dusty on June 22, 2007 at 1:00 PM

Maybe the word “CANADA” written on the edge of the officer’s epaulet might be a friggin’ clue for Pelosi’s staff in their support for the troops, whoever they are.

brewt on June 22, 2007 at 12:45 PM

There’s no reason they couldn’t have taken a picture of our military from our military. It’s not even attention to detail that’s the problem here. The .gov webpage of our armed forces shouldn’t be so foreign to people working for an elected official no matter who the official is, let alone the Speaker of the House.

Esthier on June 22, 2007 at 1:29 PM

San Francisco values.

The Ugly American on June 22, 2007 at 1:30 PM

Make sure you go to her web site use the contact us form the zip code is 63138 for San Fran advise the madam speaker she may want to change her site. to bad Bill O’ at FOX hasn’t pick up on this little tid bit.

dread pirate roberts on June 22, 2007 at 1:45 PM

She know the difference but could not find a USA Military person who would approve using their image to be associated with Pelosi.

Wade on June 22, 2007 at 1:58 PM

And the photo is down….

James on June 22, 2007 at 12:27 PM

Or how about outraged that she hires people who apparently aren’t even literate? It says “Canada” right there on the shoulderboard.

Blacklake on June 22, 2007 at 2:37 PM

Pathetic. Some twisted part of me hopes the Dems sweep the 2008 general elections so for the next four years we can sit back and say “See? We told you!”

flipflop on June 22, 2007 at 3:18 PM

She needs to shedule some time with her plastic surgeon to loosen up the last face lift in order to loosen up the slits formerly known as her eyes.

Alden Pyle on June 22, 2007 at 3:18 PM

Their’s are so much more fashionable than American uniforms…

Besides, what difference does it make, to Nancy they are all baby killers.

Tim Burton on June 22, 2007 at 5:50 PM

benrand,

Nice, what a slap in the face. Wonder if she knows anyone in the military.

Well, sure. There’s that idiot Gen. Pace, and that annoying little twerp Gen. Petraeus and with his ridiculous attempt to waste her precious time.

So, there’s at least a couple.
