Political Circus: Coach or first class for Pelosi?

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail to the international stage, there's always something that gets a laugh or a second glance. Here are some of the things you might have missed:

Goodbye Air Force planes

When the new Congress convenes in January, Rep. Nancy Pelosi will find herself back to flying commercial, AOL's Patricia Murphy writes. As speaker of the house, Pelosi traveled on Air Force planes, a practice incoming House Speaker John Boehner has vowed to end.

    I guess the black guy has served his purpose for the RNC – the leadership should reflect the party – right.

    Now the test. CNN spends all day inundating us with Palin articles. Even Fake Sniffit has been pointing it out. And yet, how long will it take for them to report that her silly TLC campaign commercial masquerading as a nature documentary lost FORTY PERCENT of its viewers in ITS SECOND WEEK. Or will CNN and its "news" media brethren even bother to report it? After all, the underlying purpose of the CNN POlitical Ticker is to prop up her and the rest of the fabricating, ideologically stunted demogogues on the right. Can't have their articles of last week touting her massive success and obvious influence as evidenced by her silly show's first week viewership...can't have those articles look silly now, can we? No no
    ...everyone slowed down on the highway to take a peek at the Jabberwocky Barbie car accident and then appropriate drove on by...but no, CNN and the rest pulled over, took pics of the crash and now want to share them with us on what equates with their facebook pages at this point.

    Given that Speaker Pelosi drank gallons of the Al Gore "Kool-aid" on Global Warming? I urge the Honorable Mrs. Pelosi to buy a bicycle for her commute between Washington and her district. Having then-minority leader Peolosi out of the Congressional Chambers would serve a greater purpose on two fronts. America could claw it's way back to a balanced budget by cutting superflous pork and entitlement programs without her Kreskin-like influence over other Liberals.

    Well, this should give the DEPRAVED republicans something to laugh about. What turkeys they are.

    I'm so glad that Pelosi will have to use commercial airliners to get back and forth between San Francisco and D.C.This should save some of the taxpayer's money.

    I am sure Nancy will be able to handle this. When Boner is reduced to minority leader in 2012, he will bawl like a town drunk.
