Once upon a time, a group of people attending
an international conference were hanging on a rope under
a helicopter. The rope was not strong enough to carry them
all, so they decided that one had to give up his rights to
survive before everybody plunged into hell.
For a while no one volunteered, until a woman
raised her voice. She said her name was Nancy
Pelosi and would voluntarily let go of the rope, because
as an American promoting human rights in other countries
she grew accustomed to give up the lives of her countrymen
the men abroad in order to prevent them from brutalising
their wives and kids, and got used to the situation in which
she and her country received no thanks from the nations they
helped, such as Vietnam, Iraq and
Afghanistan. "Hope this time you can be a bit more generous
and all applause for my sacrifice," concluded she.
As soon as she finished her touching speech,
everybody started clapping their hands ....
A few months later, a memoir by Nancy Pelosi
hit bestseller list in USA, which is titled: Book of Survival
- An American's
Ducks on Washington?
