Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of California made the mistake of giving away all of her tickets to the Inagural Parade and did not save any for herself. In a move speaking of her enterprising and inventive nature, however, Pelosi decided instead to view the parade as a participant.
The Represantative chose to join the float sponsored by "The Educated and Professional People for Obama." The float portrayed the various occupations of the educated masses of people who supported the nation's first minority president: strippers, pimps, hookers, professional welfare recipients, multi-generational unemployed, beggars, the criminally insane, and the gullible.
Pelosi donned a low-cut and sequinned costume and took her place as one of the pole dancers on the float.
Unfortunately, the Californian did not make any tips on the parade route as no one asked her for a table dance.
