The “astroturf” has spoken

February, 2010:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is questioning whether the conservative “tea party” coalition truly represents a grass-roots movement.

In a broadcast interview, Pelosi calls tea party voters the “astroturf” movement.


Speaker Nancy Pelosi believes “Democrats will retain the majority in the House.”

In a pre-taped interview for CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, Pelosi pointed out that Democrats have a 50-plus seat majority, vowing, “I’m not yielding one grain of sand, we’re fighting for every seat.”

January 5, 2011 and 60+ seats later:

Today, Pelosi hands over the gavel to John Boehner and a new day begins.

Maybe all those crows falling from the sky are for Ms. Pelosi – to eat.
