I do not know where to start.  All of the money lines are so obvious and so easy.

Our good friends at Judicial Watch [ignore the name, it helps] have managed to obtain the Air Force travel records for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Apparently, she has spent over $2.2 million traveling on 103 Air Force flights.  Of those 103 flights, 31 included members of Mrs. Pelosi's family.  I have read elsewhere that many of those 31 flights were only for her family and Mrs. Pelosi was not even on board.

Money line number one comes from the Blogfather; Glenn Reynolds: "Like I say, I don’t want to hear one word about my carbon footprint."

The story documents profligate spending to equip those flights for their "esteemed" passengers.  Quite a bit of money was spent to guess.....alcohol.  One international Congressional Delegation that was passing through Israel on the way to Iraq was stocked with Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J Brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark Whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Light Rum, Jim Beam Bourbon, Beefeater Gin, Dewars Scotch, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of imported wine.  Of course, while our Congresscritters were in Israel, they could only bring kosher liquor to their rooms.  So the Air Force bought that on the local Israeli market.

Then there was the flight to Louisiana to view the continuing relief for Hurricane Katrina.  The budget for the trip was $60,000.00.  They actually spent $65,505.46.

If they were spending their own money on this high living, I wouldn't really care all that much.  But they are spending my money on such things.  I didn't even get invited up for a drink.

All I got was the bill and the hangover.

Now this is spending like a drunken Democrat.

And people thought that the GOP spent a lot of money....
