Pelosi Shoots Down Jackson Resolution

7/9/2009 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee promised fans she'd get a resolution passed in Congress honoring Michael Jackson -- but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi just 86'd the proposal.

Nancy Pelosi: Click to watch
In a news conference moments ago on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said that while Jackson was "a great performer," a resolution "will open up two contrary views that are not necessary at this time to be expressed."

Somewhere Rep. Pete King is doing a righteous fist pump.

WHAT? She Who Must Not Be Named actually did something I respect? The fact that she, of all people, is the voice of reason in this crowd still isn't very encouraging, but I'm so glad one of them said something which so obviously had to be said.

There is no such thing as reality tv    

8. Whatever, some of our past presidents have been involved in the biggest scandals ever and we can't give Michael Jackson this resolution? WHATEVER NANCY

Sorry, but Jackson doesn't deserve it. He has done nothing in many years and died leaving debts, a strange legacy and is also a drug addict. Give the honor to our troops or police/firemen/women. They are the real hereos. He got paid enough for his entertaining.

I'm quite sure if Pelosi was an MJ fan and/or the Jacksons contributed money to her then she would have gotten it done. While I agree it's not the right time to do it, I think something should be done in the future. Rep. King can kiss my ass.

Wow. For once, I salute Nancy Pelosi. This is completely unnecessary jargon that just wastes time in Washington.

Good for her! A resolution honoring Michael is not necessary, despite what all his fans think. He is not the messiah so stop glorifying him.

@ #12 - If the Speaker of the House were male, would you be commenting on his looks? I hate it when female politicians are judged on their appearance or the clothes they wear. Judge them on their merits like you would with male politicians.

It's about time someone showed some sense in this matter. There are too many 'doubts" about his character off the stage to be giving him a congressional resolution. For those who are quick to point out he was found not guilty of any child molestation charges, I would point out that "not guilty" and "innocent" are two very different legal terms. At worst, MJ was a predatory child molester. At best, he was a mentally ill drug addict who showed very disturbing judgment when it came to his interaction with underage males.
