Pelosi May Face Coup: Pizzeria Offers the 'Pelosi Special'

Local St. Louis business owner Russell Clark is offering an “Obama Special” and a “Pelosi Special” at his Cecil Whittaker’s Pizzeria. The restaurant is located in south St. Louis at 9975 A Lin Ferry, 63123.

With “The Obama” you pay for an extra large and get a small. With the “Pelosi Special” – “We’ll tell you what you’re getting.” The “Government Special” is, of course, “all pork.”

It is a sign of how bad things are for Democrats that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's best shot at keeping her job come November is to lose no more than 38 seats in Congress.

At 39, Republicans would take control of the chamber, and Pelosi would hand the gavel to Republican leader John Boehner and almost certainly face a coup attempt from within a demoralized new minority.

Control of the House is "on the bubble," said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics. He now projects that Republicans will come up just short, but cautioned, "We're going to be revising that all the way to Nov. 2."
