Another skim latte and two more carte blanches thanks.

I think that part of the reason I heart the new US Speaker of the House of Reps Nancy Pelosi so much is not merely the fact that you just know she’s going to stick it to Bush but that fact that she uses phrases like carte blanche (

This might not sound like a lot but when you’ve got a president who says things like this…

"I've reminded the prime minister-the American people, Mr. Prime Minister, over
the past months that it was not always a given that the United States and
America would have a close relationship." (George W. Bush, Washington, D.C.,
June 29, 2006)

…and probably thinks carte blanche is the biscuit that comes with his morning coffee it’s something.
