NV Dem Skips Hurricane Katrina Vote To Have Neck Lift

  1. Skipping last fall’s vote on the Hurricane Katrina relief bill in order to get plastic surgery was worth it, says Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.), who loves her new look, ROLL CALL reports.

    “For the last couple of years whenever I was on TV all I could do was look at my neck,” Berkley said in a recent online audio interview. “It was driving me crazy because my neck was starting to hang ... and it was making me very self conscious.”

    Now, she joked in an interview with hosts of the Vegas-centric podcast show “The Strip,” “I have the neck of a 20-year-old and a 50-year-old body.” Until the Feb. 16 program, Berkley hadn’t said much about missing the September vote on the Katrina relief bill due to her nip-and-tuck job.

    Berkley, 55, told the show’s co-hosts, Steve Friess and Miles Smith, “I decided that it was going to be very hard to hide and I’m a very public person.” And let’s face it, she said, that brilliant plastic surgeon “turned back the clock 10 years.”

    Friess cracked Berkley up when he asked whether she thinks she’ll get more votes with her youthful, thinner neck. She laughed and said, “The 20-somethings! Maybe this will get them out to vote.”
  2. I guess the nip and tuck strategy might work. The "republicans hate everyone who isnt rich" strategy isn't working for them like it used to.
  3. FYI the bill passed unanimously by the House and Senate on September 21
  4. AWWWWW!! Another yawning baby! How cute! More, more!!
  5. Where was the Vice President of the United States of America during the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when hundreds of thousands of people were stranded without food and water?
