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.

Stop twittering and return your pay raises like you are forcing others to do. Both the Senate and Congress return your voted on pay increases!

In most jobs twitter is considered "Misuse of company time" it is time consuming and obviously hinders productivity. Is this really what we need on the hill? Something else to slow them down? They should be working on solutions, not on posts.

Q    

One would think the House floor would be a place to pay attention to what is going on rather than twittering. I guess I'm just an idealist.

Nancy Pelosi used government contracts to help her husband get ahead in his business. She is corrupt, but who in government isn't corrupt now?!!!

Nancy Pelosi is an idiot who should have much better things to do...well, she would if she were the right person for the job. Don't bother TMZ, it isn't worth trying to explain anything to her.

Pelosi is destroying & she certainly doesn't want taxpayers to know what she's really up to. Sometimes, I'm even afraid to know what she's up to because you know she's up to no good.

#32, you hit it right on the head...This country will no longer be ours if this keeps up. They should all be thrown out...We could have gave everyone that makes less than 150 thousand, a hundred thousand a piece. There would have been no lay offs, economy would be good, and we wouldn't be in sooooo much debt. But NO, they had to bail everyone out, give money to the banks that sat on it. Why? Plain and simple: The gov. does not trust the people of this great nation. There are still people out there waiting for there houses, cars, and Obama to pay there bills...Well, wake up people it is not going to happen...NOT NOW, NOT EVER....I truly don't like that freak of a lady Pelosi (wanna be president), how can you NOT read a bill, that you are passing...And you trusted this corrupt woman when she said, don't worry everything is in there, just sign it....What a joke...America is a laughing stock now...It's time to take OUR COUNTRY BACK.

uhHuh    

BTW-I THINK IT'S GREAT TMZ IS ROUNDING UP THE UGLY CELEBS IN DC SO WE CAN GET TO KNOW THEM AND HOPEFULLY OPEN OUR EYES & EARS TO WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR GOVERNMENT. WHO WE HAVE TRUSTED TO TAKE CARE OF OUR BIZ & RUN IT INTO THE DIRT.. IT WORKED FOR OBAMA.
IGNORANCE IS BLISS, HOW BLISSFUL DO YOU FEEL TODAY? STILL HAVE YOUR HOUSE? YOUR JOB? FOOD ON YOUR TABLE?
HOW'S THAT CHANGE WORKIN OUT FOR YEA NOW??

WHILE YOUR DARK KNIGHT IS OUT SAVING THE WORLD, OUR COUNTRY IS GOING TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET AND OPENING DOORS FOR MORE TO JOIN US. WHERE DOES SOMEONE IN THE "FREE WORLD" RUN TO?

AND BTW, THE MAJORITY OF CALIFORNIA DOES NOT BACK PELOSI. SHE'S OUT OF ANYONE'S CONTROL BUT HER OWN. AND AS FAR AS ARNOLD GOES, HE'S PROBABLY THE MOST HARDWORKING & HONEST POLITICIAN WE HAVE HERE. HE RETURNS HIS SALARY EVERY YEAR TO THE STATE, TRIED TO LEAD US TO SHELTER BUT THE VOTERS KNOCKED HIS PLAN DOWN IN A SPECIAL ELECTION 2 YRS AGO AND NOW WE SUCK. HE TRIED. HE DID NOT FAIL. WE DID.
WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA, SOON TO BE OWNED BY CHINA (BUYING ALL OF OUR FORECLOSED HOMES FOR CHEAP WITH CHINESE DOLLARS THAT WE MADE FOR THEM BY BUYING THEIR POISON)

go figure    

Most Americans are sick of the political favoritism and taxation-without-representation that plagues Washington D.C.

Doesn't Pelosi have bigger things to worry about than TMZ and twittering??? Stop the over spending! Stop mortgaging our future!

Call, fax or email your Representative or Senator today to remind them that we (the people) ARE the administration, the President is OUR representative, and our Country is a nation founded on the principles of self-responsibility, individual rights, and respect for the rule of law set forth in the Constitution.

Queen Pelosi, with a history of demanding G5 jets from the military for her personal use, needs to be voted out of office.

who has the facts? ME    

It won't be the economy or Al Quieda that brings this country down. It will be all of the stupid technological advances like twitter that do us in. For God sake's does anyone under 40 actually just sit down, realx and enjoy a little quiet time?? Between twitter, blackberries, cell phones, etc. people have to be "on" all the time. I actually get in my car, no cell phone, no nothing and just think and relax. Try it, you may like it. No Twitter for me!!

Okay, it's April 1- this is a joke right? Pelosi, Reid,and Frank, ably supported by the wheeler dealer Dodd, are the primary players in the credit crash of this country. They are horrible people who have provided ample grounds for their impeachment. Obama guarantees his personal safety and political stability by making Crazy Joe his VP and those clowns the players in Congress. What could we possibly do to impeach Obama for violations of the Constitution if the people NEXT in line are even worse? AS Dave Chappelle said- "Vice president Sanchez".
