It’s hard to look into the taut face of our Speaker of the House (avoid it if possible) and not see how much she loves to fly. It’s written across her stretched smile. Or perhaps she only looks that way because she’s got a good alcoholic buzz going.

Nancy Pelosi, never one to sacrifice anything except sagging skin, has spent $101,000 of taxpayer money on in-flight food and adult beverages. Then, one can only surmise, she has her plastic surgeon suck it right back out again.

Judicial Watch obtained documents under the Freedom of Information Act that show Pelosi has racked up $2.1 million of taxpayer money for her private flights and parties. Commercial flights probably dry out her skin..and her liver.

It (Pelosi’s food and booze bill) reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.

Pelosi, in a grand gesture of rebellion against Obama’s spending freeze, has opened her bony arms and invited her children and grandchildren to bask in the glow of spending other people’s money. They’ve been hitching rides on the Air Force jets, often without any Congressional representative even on board.

Doug Ross writes about the love affair between the Pelosi Family and their tax-payer funded private fleet:

Put simply, the United States Air Force is serving as a multi-billion dollar chauffeur- and baby-sitting service for Nancy Pelosi’s kids and grandkids — presumably because commercial travel is beneath the families of the autocrats.

It isn’t beneath them. It’s just not convenient. Surely you can understand. And with each flight costing taxpayers $18,000 an hour, can’t we find it in our hearts to fork over our paychecks – if we’re still employed, that is – to fund a better life for these millionaires?

One of the most prominent (Congressional millionaires) is Nancy Pelosi, leader of the Democratic minority, who lists assets of up to $92 million held jointly with her businessman husband Paul. They include two vineyards, one valued between $5 million and $25 million and the other valued between $1 million and $5 million, and a stake in a restaurant chain worth as much as $25 million. They also own three pieces of prime San Francisco real estate—one being their personal dwelling in the posh Pacific Heights neighborhood—each valued at up to $5 million. Rounding out their real estate holdings are two mountain townhouses and a share in a resort, worth up to $11 million combined.

Of course, that report is from 2003. Since then, she’s no doubt found ways of increasing her wealth by saving her money and spending ours. Brilliant plan.

It’s heart-warming, really, to see a woman of her age and plastics love something as elemental as a U.S. military escorted private jet with an open bar. God bless America.
