Like These People do not have work to do for the “We the People” … Capitol Hill goes gaga over Brad Pitt
A note to Nancy Pelosi and the love sick DC groupies that went gaga for Brad Pitt … the real hero’s and models for our nation serve in our military and make the ultimate sacrifice every day to protect our freedoms.
“We the People” have an economy that is tanking, a stock market that is at a 12 year low and looks to be heading south of 6000, Blue Chip stocks trading as penny stocks, and a Democratic controlled government that continues to spend, spend and spend in the nail of pork barrel bail outs driving the economy even further into the abyss.
As We the People see the economy tank, Pelosi and crew yuck it up with the beautiful people

With all this going on and as they claim America near catastrophe some how or another the Capitol and school girl Nancy Pelosi gets all giddy because Brad Pitt came to Capitol Hill. Are you serious? Law makers and their staffs going gaga for Pitt? Isn’t this special, Hollywood stars getting preferential treatment. So much for “We the People,” I guess in DC it just matters who the people are. This is ultimately why there is such a disconnect these days. Politicians have stopped caring about serving the people and care more about who they can get a photo-op next to.
From the moment he stepped into the Capitol on Thursday, sunglassed and goateed, Pitt’s star power transformed congressional business-as-usual in a way any lawmaker or new president might envy.
“Nice face. Waaaay too skinny,” one Senate source e-mailed on condition of anonymity after catching sight of the actor between meetings with lawmakers about helping rebuild New Orleans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was not immune to his charms. Praising Pitt for his work to rebuild New Orleans’ hurricane-ravaged 9th Ward, she even allowed that meeting him affords her “bragging rights to my children and my grandchildren – a real treat for me as well.”
Do you know how many individuals, “We the People” have made a difference in New Orleans, across America and the world and never get any such treatment? Does Nancy Pelosi thank and treat every hero in America like this?
Having Pitt around, said a grinning Pelosi, was “a real treat for me,” because he was “a real hero for the people of New Orleans , a real model for the nation.”
Honestly, who cares if it was Brad Pitt who showed up in Washington, DC or Brad Smith? Isn’t this what has become wrong with politicians and Washington? Hollywood stars have access and preferential treatment, while Joe Six Pack is left high and dry.
