Nancy Pelosi -- All Atwitter Over TMZ

4/1/2009 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nancy Pelosi Forget the economy, war, poverty and substandard education -- the troops in the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are spending time worrying about TMZ and Twitter.

A spokesman in Pelosi's office confirmed the Speaker's Director of New Media sent an email to Democratic press secretaries warning them that TMZ is sniffing around the Hill, asking congressmen about Twittering.

According to The Political Machine, the email reads, "Yesterday, TMZ stalked out members ... and asked them about their use of Twitter. Please be aware that they may continue to do so."

The email explains Twitter is banned from the Senate floor, but permitted on the House floor. We're guessing this is a painfully obvious talking point for morons.

The email explains how we asked three congressmen about twittering and some of their answers sounded "obscene." What Democrat says this? Who under 80 says this?

NOTE TO NANCY --
Relax, we're not in your fair district to do harm. Quite the opposite, there are a lot of people who want to care about politics -- but don't -- because they find it boring. Our M.O. is simple -- if people get to know their reps on a personality level, they're more likely to listen to them when they talk policy. Hence, when we asked Congressman Schock about his abs, when we asked Senator Burr about driving his VW Thing in a snowstorm with the top down, and when we asked the dreaded Twitter questions -- a lot of people who knew nothing about these dudes connected with them. And if you don't believe us, ask the congressmen.

He's just another Idiot    

Botox Pelosi is the absolutely worse Speaker of the House in History. Who died and made her Queen? She spends an enormous amount of taxpayer money flying in a huge Jet every week to and from California. She married a rich man - she should pay for her own ride home to California. What an egotisical BITCH!
Dictator Obama is on a trip to Europe and taking 500 people with him. Think what that costs taxpayers !
I am so sorry that I voted Democratic. A big mistake and I regret it.

Democrats are evil    

This Pelositwit is similar to colon cancer. Eventually, her party will kill you but in the meantime, she'll continue to be a pain in the ass.

I can't stand her as she looks down on anyone who disagrees with her or her cronies. Obama says he inherited this mess, but look at Reid and good old Barney. They are paving the way to destroy America, wake up people!!!

From Washington DC.

Seriously the last thing we need here in the Nation's capitol to ask an intern to check your site daily.

Didn't we ask our intern;s enough?

DC is called the Hollywood for Ugly people. So with that being said we have no juicy celeb types for you to post on your site.

Such complicated subject matter is barely handled well by CNN/Fox News and MSNBC what hopes will we have for you and your veiwers to cover the intricacies of appropriations bills and health care reform.

I think your viewers are stilling try to figure out if the Hills is fake.

And since I am failing to not sound condescending but yes..I would be concerned for you guys to start covering Capitol Hill. May the DNC pressroom have to add Harvey to their mailing list, and try to explain such complicated matters for the 144 Twitter verse of TMZ viewers.

I continue to lose respect for people from California and MA...their continued support of Pelosi and Frank is an outrage. How dare any of you stand up and defend these two.

How can you people look in the mirror and accept yourself after supporting these two from your states for oh so very long?

And puh-leeze, dont ever act like the Raiders or Patriots Fans are all tough and brave---not supporting these two to represent your State are you.
