Nancy Pelosi’s military jet became the perfect symbol of the wretched excess of the 111th Congress.

Inkwell has repeatedly stated a preference for Speaker-to-be John Boehner’s flying commercial.

Well, National Review’s The Corner is reporting that Air Pelosi is being retired:

Presumptive Speaker Boehner just told reporters he’s flown commercial for 20 years and will continue to do so as Speaker.


No, it’s not going to save the taxpayer lots of money, but it will set the right tone for a small-r republican government.
