This is funny.
Here’s the USA Today headline on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s upcoming trip to Haiti:
In the body of the article, we get some details about who’s accompanying Pelosi:
Others…on the trip include Sens. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa; Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.; Bill Nelson, D-Fla.; Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; and George LeMieux, R-Fla. The House delegation includes Reps. John Conyers, D-Mich.; Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.; Jim Oberstar, D-Minn.; Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas; Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore.; Donna Christensen, D-V.I.
So, where’s the “bipartisanship?”
Oh, that “bipartisanship:”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she is leading a 12-member “bipartisan” congressional delegation to Haiti. The group includes one Republican — outmatched by 11 Democrats.
Though Pelosi’s press release used the word “bipartisan” five times, Florida Sen. George LeMieux is the sole GOP lawmaker in Congress visiting the devastated island nation for what would presumably be a bipartisan cause — assessing ways to help the country recover from its earthquake.
