When Alexandra Pelosi did a piece on toothless Republican rednecks, it was an instant hit with the Libs. But I give her a lot of credit: when Bill Maher said it would only be fair that she make a video just as incendiary to liberals, Alexandra got right on it.
Behold, her coverage of welfare freeloaders. I'm surprised Mediaite hasn't pulled this video yet. Seriously. Watch the whole thing.
Pelosi's point was to show her fellow Democrats that "the entitlement culture's gotten so big, we're losing our own people." "Own your party," she exhorted them.
"Joe the Doorman," she noted, comes from a long line of Democrats. But he won't be voting with them this year. Nor will Dimitri, her driver.
They're sick and tired of working to support able-bodied people in the welfare lines who say things like, "I'm here trying to get some Obama bucks," while freely admitting they have no intention of looking for work. Some said they support Obama simply because he is black, or because "he gives me stuff."
Pelosi asked one fellow if he had any intention of looking for a job and he shook his head no. His answer was priceless: "Not looking for a job, maybe a career, but not a job."
That same man -- who said he hadn't worked in "half a decade" -- told Pelosi he deserves your money "only because my ancestors came here, helped build this place . . . my ancestors, the slaves."
While the audience laughed uproariously at the toothless rednecks in Mississippi, Maher was not amused by Pelosi's piece on welfare kings and queens and he tried mightily to distinguish them from their toothless southern counterparts.
But so much for Maher's suggestion that racism is exclusive to the south. He summarily dismissed Doorman Joe's weary query -- "I come to work every day, why can't you?" -- because "they don't usually hire black doormen." Huh.
Not to mention, Maher lamented, it really is damned hard to get a job if you've gone to jail. He seemed to speak from personal knowledge, so I guess he doesn't hire them, either.
