we certainly heard a lot about pelosi's jet, here is more..

A draft report by the Government Accountability Office, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, is the first to examine compliance with travel rules across the federal government following reports of extensive abuse of premium-class travel by Pentagon and State Department employees.

The review of travel spending by more than a dozen agencies from July 1, 2005, to June 30, 2006, found 67 percent of premium-class travel by executives or their employees, worth at least $146 million, was unauthorized or otherwise unjustified.

Among the worst offenders: the State Department, whose employees typically fly abroad on official business.

Many of the cases involved high-ranking senior officials or political appointees who claimed exceptions to federal travel rules by citing old medical records or questionable approval from a subordinate employee.

Investigators found that senior officials often flew business- or first-class because they felt entitled to the perk.

The higher airfare for traveling in one of the premium classes resulted in expenses often five to 10 times more than what was authorized under government travel rules.

"With the serious fiscal challenges facing the federal government, agencies must maximize their ability to manage and safeguard valuable taxpayers' dollars," investigators wrote, suggesting agencies recoup the extra cost from those who abuse travel policies.

the part in the constitution that says all politicians and political appointees are assholes and should be treated as such.

Agreed. Let them fly standby.

I once was flying back from Chicago after a Head Start meeting. Full plane, three stops, and I had the good fortune to be seated next to a 300 pound black transvestite who smelled like he (she?) hadn't bathed in a week.

After that, I'll take the C-130. ;-)

horseshit perfect.

If I had my way I'd make them fly "baggage class". They need to spend osme time in the back of a C130 then they'd all have an idea of how good they have it.
