"Madame Tse Tung... er, I mean Speaker..."
The reviews are in and they aren't kind. From "what was she wearing?" to "she looks like she's channeling Mao Tso Tung," is the gamut. Nobody, but NOBODY liked what Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi wore during last night's State of the Union address. One extremely well known network correspondent who shall remain nameless likened it to a paper bag, both in color and fit. Here's the thing: when you have that job, you know this is going to be one of your highest visibility nights of the year. And considering the President's popularity ratings going into his first State of the Union Address, along with the exceedingly high level of concern about the economy right now, you had to know that viewership would be sky-high. As I said to a fellow viewer last night, "She's thinking that is the best thing in her close?" We would like to gently suggest that she can do better.
