On their Flickr page, Pelosi's office writes:
Thanks to the community at Daily Kos, and others who joined in, Speaker Pelosi received thousands of roses this morning for her 70th birthday. She sent half of the roses to Walter Reed Army Medical Center and is distributing the other half to hill staff to thank them for all their hard work on the health reform legislation.
Very classy gesture from a very classy community. Thanks to you guys, both Walter Reed and the Capitol are brighter, happier places today.
And quite the contrast to the neanderthals on the other side, huh?
Pelosi also recorded a quick thank you:
Update: Transcript of YouTube thank you message:
Thanks very much to the Kos community for this fabulous birthday---these fabulous birthday wishes.
I've shared many of your good wishes in the form of these beautiful roses with our men and women in uniform at Walter Reed Hospital; shared some of them with our staff who all worked so hard to make this victory possible.
But I want to not only thank you for the roses; thank you for the sentiment that comes with it. Thank you for the hard work that you did to help us create a comfort level for Members and for the American people that the time was now for healthcare for all Americans. As a right, not a privilege.
