Air Force Three?

Washington — The way Speaker Nancy Pelosi will travel home to San Francisco and on official business is the latest tempest to hit the House of Representatives.

The speaker of the House has been provided a jet from the government fleet to use for official business since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks because of security concerns.

Former Republican Speaker Dennis Hastert used a military 12-seat jet to carry him mainly from Washington’s Andrews Air Force Base to airports near his home district in Chicago’s suburbs.

Top House Republicans such as Minority Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri and Rep. Adam Putnam of Florida, chairman of the House Republican Conference, agree the speaker merits the use of a military jet for security reasons, but say Pelosi has been pressing the Pentagon to provide her with a bigger jet than used by Hastert so she can ferry family, other lawmakers and lobbyists across the country.

    Look at it this way:

    1) It is an admission of possible threats against our high officials, but…we couldn’t possibly say it was, well, you know who…

    2) You can get around the “culture of Corruption” by having your jet to haul lobbyists around, rather than having to report that the plane of a lobbyist hauled you around….

    And…well, Let us eat Doritos!
