Zombie Pelosi Threatens To Eat Hecklers' Brains

I Can Smell Your Brains!

It can be suggested that Nancy Pelosi's possible plastic surgery is a clever ruse to hide the fact that she is a flesh-consuming zombie. Being disastrously wrong on Iraq and her terrible popularity in the polls adds credence to the fact that she is the living dead. Now, the Politico reports that Nancy Pelosi has transcended mere rumors of our apocalyptic demise and seeks to feast on the delicious brains of angry contrarians in Denver. The Politico reports:

House Democratic leaders and protesters waving McCain signs had a war of words Tuesday at a press event outside an old train station. The demonstrators interrupted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with chants of “Drill here! Drill now!” Pelosi paused and asked the group, “Right here?” Seeming to enjoy the back and forth, she followed with another question: “Can we drill your brains? Hot Air has the shocking video.

Instead of threatening to eat her opponents flesh, Pelosi could have changed her tune to allow developing more energy infrastructure instead of just providing the short-term fix of seizing the strategic oil reserve, as she initially proposed. It is preposterous that we continue outsourcing money and environmental impact to other parts of the world, while maintaining restrictions on oil shale, offshore drilling, and ANWR.

Since oil is only one piece of the energy puzzle, and I need a job when this Navy gig is over with, I was checking out the nuclear field. Westinghouse has the new AP1000 reactor, which will shut down safely without any human action and was designed to compete economically with fossil fuel power generation. There's only a handful in the NRC approval process (mostly down south), but China wants a 100 of these bad boys by 2020. It's comforting to know, that we'll still be able to borrow more and more money from the improving Chinese, while Congress remains deadlocked and likely to get swindled by the "Taxpayer dollars for T. Boone Pickens" plan.
