Again, this was lifted from the always wild and wooley, Billmon's Whiskey Bar. Borrowed sentiment to be sure, but borrowed with love.
What the Dems are saying:Pelosi praised "the beauty and genius of our democracy," and thanked voters for giving Democrats the chance to lead.
"Democrats pledge civility and bipartisanship in conduct of the work here," she said, calling for "partnerships … not partisanship."
What the Dems are actually thinking:MARSELLUS: Step aside, Butch.
Butch steps aside, revealing Marsellus standing behind him, holding a pump-action shotgun. KABOOM!!!!
Zed is blasted in the groin. Down he goes, screaming in agony. Marsellus, looking down at his whimpering rapist, ejects the used shotgun shell.
BUTCH: You okay?
MARSELLUS: Naw man. I'm pretty fuckin' far from okay.
BUTCH: What now?
MARSELLUS: What now? Well let me tell you what
now. I'm gonna call a couple pipe-hittin' niggas, who'll go to work on homes here with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. (to Zed) You hear me talkin' hillbilly boy?! I ain't through with you by a damn sight. I'm gonna git medieval on your ass!
