She Hulk does not look happy. She does not look happy at all. Maybe her dress doesn't look enough like an ugly slip cover to a couch? Could be.
Last week I noted that Herman Cain had called Nancy Pelosi a princess and how I didn't find it to be the end of the world. John Breshnahan (POLITICO) reports she's declared she's too old to be a princess. Yeah, I remember that scene in Too Wong Foo as well.
And I might have given her credit for that line, for being funny.
But then she started implying that this was saying she hadn't worked and she had things handed to her.
Uh, no, Nancy, you're a princess because you're out of touch. That's also why you're no longer Speaker of the House.
We rallied behind the Democrats. Nancy took impeachment off the table. I believed her on that. I thought it was stupid and she was cowardly but before I voted in the 2006 mid-terms, I knew Nancy wasn't going to push for impeachment.
But I did believe that she was going to end the Iraq War.
And by 2008, I couldn't stand her.
And when that stupid woman started calling Barack a gift from God, I started thinking, "White people who are not religious better learn to shut up."
(I believe Nancy's supposed to be Catholic. Her dragging God into an election with such a claim doesn't speak to her actually practicing a religion.)
Desperate Housewives was on ABC last night.
Susan's paintings ended up being exhibited.
Before that, Lynette got flowers from Tom and it was their anniversary. She went to his new apartment with a bottle of scotch.
Those flowers? Standing order he made years ago to be sure he never forgot.
Renee was funny but she had no storyline.
Gabby was funny and made me laugh out loud for the first time in weeks. Carlos is a drunk and has to face that. Now. Now because Gabby couldn't keep her mouth shut as Carlos' work.
I can never remember the name of that cop. Chuck?
He shows up and threatens Bree and she answers his questions for too long before she finally tells him to get lost.
So Susan's art teacher brings his gallery dealer to class and he falls for Susan's paintings -- specifically the one she painted of her, Gabby, Bree and Lynette around the dead body of Gabby's step-father, around the grave they've dug, etc.
The teacher ignores Susan.
She shows up at an exhibit to learn her paintings are in it.
In a panic, she calls Gabby and Bree and tells them to bring their check books.
They do and buy her part of the exhibit for $10,000.
Gabby made me laugh with Carlos when she said she needed a drink and he told her she poured out all the booze because of his drinking addiction. She said there was a bottle in the tank of the toilet in the guest bathroom, "Don't you even know me, Carlos?"
My second laugh was when she and Bree were going crazy to buy the exhibit, the dealer thought they were lovers. Bree tried to explain it but Gabby put an arm around her and told her, "Now really isn't the time."
So they bought the paintings. But not before Chuck showed up and pointed out the man looked like the man who'd gone missing and the women all looked like Gabby, Bree, Lynette and Susan.
Carlos has a backstabber at work who tried to poach the big client by telling him Carlos was a drunk. The man went to Carlos and Carlos keeps the account only if he goes into rehab.
Meanwhile the episode ends with Bree in her kitchen, drinking.
