Another Letter to my Congresswoman

I have never been so frustrated with an individual in Congress as I am with the Speaker of the House. So frustrated in fact that I penned this note a few minutes ago to my Representative. If you are as annoyed with Speaker Pelousi as I am, perhaps a note to your Representative would alleviate some frustration as well. Feel free to use and modify as you wish.

Dear congresswoman Bono,

First of all, thank you for your service to our Country, State and County. You are doing an excellent job. I recently heard of the National Arsonist’s Registration data base you are working toward establishing. That is a fine and noble effort.

But this correspondence is regarding the recent visit to an enemy state our illustrious Speaker of the House chose to make, ill respective of the wishes of our current administration. That was clearly the most defiant and irresponsible action taken by any Speaker of the House our Country has ever seen.

Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is any reference or authorization made directing the Congress of the United States to make or attempt to influence foreign policy (other than declaring war), yet because of a clear hatred and utter disregard for the President of the United States, Speaker of the House Pelosi has wounded this Country with her unbridled desire for power. She has exhibited a complete lack of discretion and self control that is required of her position, and should be censured and encouraged to resign.

I understand you have but one voice in congress; however, when even members of the Democratic Party are willing to criticize her cavalier behavior, I believe it would take but a small effort to win the necessary 10 to15 Democratic votes required for censure.

Congresswoman Bono, Speaker Pelosi has been in her position for a mere 3 months and has already been involved in “Plane-Gate”, voting against the troops, and now being nicknamed the “Damascus Diva”. What else does she have planned, a coup-de-ta? She is an embarrassment to the United States and Congress, and does NOT speak for me.

I am a conservative blogger and will post this letter on my blog, ( and will look forward to your response.

Once again, I thank you for your service, and pray for wisdom in your decision making.

Constituent, and Conservative Blogger
