My article as originally published in American Thinker:
Telling someone that they’re ‘full-of-baloney’ is another way of letting them know that what they are saying is nothing more than nonsense, twaddle, claptrap, drivel or just a flat-out lie. Baloney (AKA bologna) is a low-grade sausage made of finely minced meat parts and cubes of lard.
Nancy Pelosi once again hinted that she has information that would keep Newt Gingrich from becoming President. Newt fired back:
Look, I think if she knows something she ought to say it. If she doesn’t know something she ought to quit saying it. But this is baloney. I don’t think any Republican is going to be threatened by Nancy Pelosi. Frankly, I’d rather have her threaten me than endorse me. So I feel pretty good about it. If she has something, bring it out.
Speaking of baloney, Pelosi has a long history of being ‘full-of-it’. I could fill a book so I’ll just list a few of my favorites:
While she was discussing Obamacare she said: “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”
Unemployment checks create jobs? Really? They do according to Nancy: “It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”
Fossil fuels make a great alternative to — fossil fuels. Yes she said this: “”I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels,” she said at one point. Natural gas “is cheap, abundant and clean compared to fossil fuels,” she said at another. ”
Human Events’ latest article on the perils of Nancy Pelosi shows that her incoherent thinking is much less than harmless and gives ten examples.
I’m thinking that minced chunks of various animal parts mixed with lard don’t sound so harmful after all. Perhaps baloney deserves a reprieve from its long held stigma. I can think of no one more deserving of taking baloney’s place than Nancy Pelosi. Just as Mr. Ponzi was awarded a place in history for his deeds.
So the next time you call someone out on their hogwash, rubbish or gobbledygook just let them know that they’re really just — Full-of-Pelosi.
