Why does the GOP INSIST on embarrassing themselves?

With all thats going wrong with their party, and this country, what do they spend the most time on this week? A plane for Nancy Pelosi. And why is this embarrassing? It turns out, she was not the one that requested that bigger plane "Amid the hubbub, House Sergeant-at-Arms Bill Livingood, who is charged... show more With all thats going wrong with their party, and this country, what do they spend the most time on this week?

"Amid the hubbub, House Sergeant-at-Arms Bill Livingood, who is charged with the speaker's security, issued a statement saying it actually was he, not Pelosi, who had requested that the military provide the larger plane so Pelosi could fly nonstop to the West Coast."

So just because hastert only had 1000 miles to fly, and could use a little plane, and because pelosi has 4000 miles to fly, and small planes cannot go that far without multiple stops, the GOP embarrasses themselves attacking Pelosi personally, when the new plane was not even her idea. No wonder the GOP got spanked last november!
Update: Wow. judging from some of the responses here, GOP and embarrassment must be pathological!
Update 2: Oh, and one more thing. For those idiots who cannot read well, i will spell it out for you one more time. IT WAS NOT PELOSI WHO REQUESTED THE BIGGER PLANE.
