Employers cut 651,000 jobs in February, but wait! Look over there! It’s Brad Pitt with Nancy Pelosi!

Headline: “Capitol Hill goes gaga over Brad Pitt.” Read the breathless AP copy and you might think the press went a little gaga too. I mean, dig the photos. One mug shot isn’t enough. Here’s an entire montage, showing Pitt looking left, then looking right, then raising his eyebrows … you know, in case you want to rip it out of the pages of Tiger Beat and tape it to your bedroom wall.

What was Pitt doing in Washington, D.C., other than getting Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to congratulate him publicly for being in Washington, D.C.?

Pelosi mentioned Pitt’s work in New Orleans and how he “serves as a model for the rest of the country.” Model … how? What exactly has he done? What does he plan to do? How does it all work? What does this have to do with what’s happening in Washington, D.C., today?

Pelosi didn’t explain any of those things. Neither did anyone else.

In addition to some air time with Pelosi, Pitt met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and he had a “secret” meeting with President Barack Obama.

I don’t know what’s going on, but I just can’t shake the picture of Elvis in the White House with Tricky Dick.

    Thank you. I love reading you, and had that same image in my head after seeing this ridiculous story….I think they may have given him the key to Congress or something for the work he’s done rehabbing New Orleans?? Of course, the story I saw ran the caption “Running for President?” and didn’t mention the secret meeting with BO. Tricky, indeed! Happy weekend!

    Why? Grilling him for Steroids, what else…P-rod???

    Pelosi really should have explained it. Brad Pitt has actually done a really great thing in New Orleans. She probably didn’t elaborate on it because he’s putting the government to shame by actually building houses (energy efficient, green houses!) for displaced people down there.

    Of course, a bunch of other private citizens who are not as famous as Brad Pitt are also rebuilding New Orleans. I’d like to see some of them get this sort of attention.
