Pelosi Pinata at Georgetown Watering Hole! Virginia Right! Was There! Details.

The upscale place to be nowadays is the simi-private club simply called George. And to rise to that distinction in the Georgetown section of Washington, DC is quite an accomplishment!

I received an email from Ford O’Connell, chairman of the CivicForumPAC which hosted the event. I met O’Connell last year during the Virginia Elections and I posted a number of posts on Virginia Right! about the project he was working on. During the past year, I have come to know Ford O’Connell pretty well. Well, enough to know that Good Morning America was completely off base claiming there would be a “Pelosi Penata”. I am absolutely shocked and amazed at how easily a willing Main Stream Media can be duped.

Google “Pelosi Penata” and you will see what I mean. A “violence against women” festival by those accounts. I am not sure who started the rumors which grew into three “prominent” Republican officials would take turns beating an effigy pinata of Nancy Pelosi. This pinata was to be filled with “evil” quotes from or about Pelosi, Bills Pelosi has pushed, and perhaps some candy. But they were not done. Some media are reporting a Harry Reid punching bag that would be pummeled by the evil CPAC Republicans.

Oh, my! Horrors! Have my Conservative and Republican friends reached the point that we have resorted to acts of violence by proxy on a poor defenseless likeness of Nancy Pelosi? And Harry Reid, too? Say it ain’t so!

Ok. It ain’t so.

Did you ever play that game as a kid that you sit in a circle and whisper a sentence in one person’s ear, who whispers it to the next, and so on?

Pretty much what happened at George.

The True Story – Blow by Blow!

First, there was not a pinata and a punching bag. There were two pinatas.

Second, the pinatas were… DONKEYS!

They had a few names and phrases, but these were in no way a representation of anything more than the big spending, out of control, Democratic policies.

And the “prominent” right wing nuts that would “attack” the donkey pinata?

The first one was a petite young lady that was celebrating her 24th birthday. Prominent? Not yet, at least.

She swung a small stick with frilly decorations and managed to dislodge the pinata’s string from around the water pipe hanging from the ceiling. After a couple minutes of cowboy-like wrangling, the pinata was again ready for the onslaught.

This time was a success, and candy poured from the beast.

A second pinata, seemingly the twin of the first, was suspended in similar fashion. A second young lady, also a volunteer, was blindfolded, spun around like the first perpetrator, and she ripped the belly of the beast and more candy rained down.

In neither case was it represented or even suggested that these pinatas were some effigy of Democrats, least of all Pelosi and Reid. They clearly represented big spending. Nothing more. And it was FUN, something Democrats have been having very little of lately.

How could all of these left wingers get something so wrong? I just wonder what this story would have been if we didn’t pop the pinatas until Saturday.

But there is one other possibility. Ford O’Connell is a very smart guy (for a lawyer). Is it possible that he hatched this idea knowing full well the Main Stream Media’s lust for spinning the innocuous into the nefarious where Republicans are concerned might be exploited? Did Ford O’Connell punk the Main Stream Media?

Are the MSM stupid enough to fall for something like that, or were they outsmarted by someone who knows their laziness in checking facts are second only to their desire to tar and feather the right?

Did I mention Ford is wicked smart? Would he do something like this?

I would, but I’m not that smart. All I know is this has received a lot of attention. And the Lame Stream Media has egg on their face.

Disclaimers: NO botox was used on either donkey and no politicians were harmed in any way, and no violence was advocated at any time by anyone involved.

CPAC was not connected to this event.

I have no idea if Ford O’Connell really punked the MSM, and any statements made to the contrary are purely speculation on my part.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
