Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was Miss Lube Rack 1959*


From 2007 to 2011 she was third in line for the presidency in the event of the deaths of both the president and vice-president.

But 48 years earlier she wasn't no third or second but came first. 

Life Magazine photo caption: Miss Nancy D'Alesandro, Miss Lube Rack 1959, aka member of Congress and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi at age 19.

Jennifer Granholm, Miss San Carlos in 1977 and governor of Michigan from 2003 to 2011? 

Small beer.

Pic taken 1951, not 1959. Nancy was eleven years old.....
Therefore not Nancy Pelosi.

How did someone so cute turn into a bitter old shrew that makes a mockery of Democrats.

God...she is as bad as the other side!
