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.

One day, Nancy, Harry, and Barack will just be a jarring thought in our collective memory. We will all awake and say - what the hell were we thinking?

I guess it is rather amusing to know that the troops in the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are spending time worrying about TMZ and Twitter. I think it would be best if she concentrates on some graver issue.

She is just worried because TMZ thinks a republican has better abs than the President. Isn't there more important things to worry about than twitter? Maybe she should try commercial airlines and get back in touch with the people.

Every time this nitwit opens her mouth, she says something so stupid, it is hard to believe she could top herself. Until the next she opens her mouth. She's a disgrace.

So Pelosi doesn't want the public to know that there is a way they can be closer, and possibly more influential to their elected officials. I think Twitter can be a great tool for the gov't if used the right way. Put up a twitter ..how do YOU feel about this? Maybe some of our reps will start doing what WE want if !!

People you had better wake up fast! These people are not a JOKE! They are destroying this country every minute they are in charge. Do you understand what Cap & trade will do to this country? Do you understand what Government telling companines what people who work for them can make will do to this country? This Administrastion is breaking the consitution everyday and no one seems to care. The media covers for them and backs them up on this. The media no longer investigates or lets you know what YOUR Government is doing or going to do. None of these morons even read the so called stimulas bill, but voted YES! We as Americans should all be outraged. Twittering should be the least of our concerns at this point. The fairness Doctrine will shut up anyone they want to shut up (no more 1st ammendment) and that will include blogging. You better get out of the sheep herd and do something now or we are doomed to go from FREE to socialist sociey/country.

This women is a complete nut job. It is scary that someone so crazy is basically running our country. She is dangerous. I have never been so worried about our country as I am now with her, Obama, Dodd and Frank driving the bus. I especially loved her meeting with the illegal aliens and how they should not thave to leave the country and how they are good americans. Again, she is a dangerous head case and we are on the road to hell with this group.
