House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs.
“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”
So remember, boys and girls, the moral of the story is:
When your boss or your company suggests you take a pay cut, you can quote a Famous Demorat and say: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that; it would undermine the dignity of my job.”
It’ll work every time. Guaranteed.
And this is no “Urban Myth.”
No Photoshop, no digital effects. This is completely, 100% accurate:
SFPD Chief Heather Fong, at left, is the first outwardly lesbian Chief of Police in San Francisco’s history.
Theresa Sparks, center, is a former male. She is president of the San Francisco Police Commission and CEO of a multi-million dollar sex toy retailer. She is transgender.
Sgt Stephen Thorne, at right, a former female, is the first transgender male SFPD police officer.
But — of course — I couldn’t tell any of that by the photograph. Because that would be wrong. Or perhaps insightful. You choose.
San Francisco’s representative is — brace yourself — Nancy Pelosi.
Any questions from the audience?
