Brancy Puts Brangelina on Back Burner

The hallway outside Nancy Pelosi's office will be a mob scene today when Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt shows up to meet with the House speaker.

While his other half, Angelina Jolie, will be busy filming her spy thriller "Salt" at the Mandarin Oriental hotel and other venues around town, Brancy (Brad and Nancy) will be chatting about post-Katrina rebuilding efforts in New Orleans. (It's a subject Democrats are all too happy to discuss in light of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's disastrous speech last week.).

Pitt is on Capitol Hill trumpeting his "Make It Right" charity dedicated to the eco-friendly rebuilding of New Orleans, where Pitt and Jolie (and their six kids) have a house in the French Quarter.

Mr. Benjamin Button is also slated to meet with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today. But we're not sure he's as excited about his meeting as Pelosi seems to be.

The speaker's office put out a press release late yesterday afternoon announcing there will be a photo opportunity of Brancy - no, the release didn't say "Brancy" - at 3:30 p.m. today in her office. But Reid's office not only didn't announce his meeting with Pitt, but declined to even divulge the scheduled time of the meeting.

"Meeting is supposed to be private," Reid spokesman Jim Manley tells the Sleuth.

But no doubt, there'll be plenty of photos snapped of Brarry. So check back here later.

For those who would criticize Nancy Pilosi and Harry Reid for giving an audience to Brad Pitt, these lawmakers are glad to utilize any resource to promote charitable giving during these difficult economic times. Maybe it will encourage others to pitch in to do the same.
