Taxpayers paid $101,000 for Pelosi's in-flight 'food, booze'

It reads like a dream order for some wild frat party: Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.

But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for "in-flight services" – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That's almost $1,000 per week.

Note: If I had to fly with Pelosi I'd need to consume one heck of a lot of liquor, too.

Doesn't she feel the need to even try to look like she's trying to save a bit of the taxpayers' money?
