Dulles International Airport/ Air Force Times - During Senator Hillary Clinton's recent appearance before Congress to request a Campaign Debt Bailout, she obviously learned what Big Three CEO's hadn't when they showed up to plead their cause in private jets.
Senator Clinton flew at tree top level from a small private airport in sedate NY state on her American made solar powered single seated BROOM. The point was further driven home when she taxied up and parked next to the taxpayer funded plane of Her Highness, Madam Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, and third in line for the Presidency.
Madam speaker, demanded, and got, the use of an Air Force C-32, the equivalent of a highly customized Boeing 757. Designed to carry 45 staff, friends, and lobbyists back and forth to San Francisco in Business class accommodations while being catered to by a staff of 16.
In addition Pelosi gets her own stateroom, changing room and a complete entertainment and communications center at her disposal. Estimated cost to run the plane is $22,000 per hour.
Spokesman for Senator Clinton said her transportation uses about the same amount of energy as a 60 watt bulb per hour of flying time, and less than half of the energy required by Al Gore's Solar Powered Dildo discussed elsewhere in The Spoof.
"Of course," said a Hillary staffer," she's not nearly on her BROOM as long as Al's wife, Tipper, is on HER fantasy flights"
Pelosi claimed she didn't want to have a smaller plane that would be forced to refuel at least once every time she had to go back to San Francisco and sit in on a Board of Directors meeting for Del Monte foods. She called a refueling stop a "security risk", and that too many take offs and landings "made her ears pop " putting her "slightly out of balance, mentally!"
