AIPAC / Pelosi/ Democrats - Joining the Dots

REP. STENY HOYER (D-MD) spoke to the Annual AIPAC Policy Conference on Sunday May 16th 2004.
"...What a strong, strong voice for Israel. What a strong voice – (applause) – for human rights and what a strong voice for America. Howard, I am so proud to be your close friend. However; you took 90 percent of my time. (care to elaborate on how that time was spent Mr Hoyer?), (Laughter.) that’s the bad news. The good news? Nobody in the audience who knows you is shocked.

Now let me speak about my sister, Bernice, (AIPAC President Bernice Manocherian) your incoming president. She and I were born not together, but at the same hospital in New York City. I was born at least a couple of decades before Bernice. Bernice does not have a microphone, but she said, absolutely. Bernice, we are so proud of you, we sons and daughters of the Fifth Avenue Flower Hospital. And I lookforward to working as closely with you as I have with Amy – as I have with Howard. I know you will do an extraordinary job. (Applause.)

Steny Hoyer is of course the Democratic Whip

...and Bernice was Chairman of AIPAC when Nancy Pelosi and Condileeza Rice addressed the Annual AIPAC Policy Conference in May 2005 whose uplifting comments about the Israel / US relationship were noted recently by Lord Patel.


PS Grubbing around at the Whips site I discovered this fascinating example of how the lawmakers of the world's most powerful nation spend their time.

Title: Congratulating the St. Louis Cardinals on winning the 2006 World Series.

At least all the lunatics in the asylum can agree on something.
