If you’ve ever licked your chops over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joining a drag show, prepare your sweet tooth for some eye candy.

She might not be a man in drag, but she’s posed to be the next best thing.

As reported by The Hill, the legislative lady is about to make a special splash:

Pelosi will make a “special appearance” on the upcoming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Paramount+ announced Friday. The new season of the drag queen competition premieres on May 20 on the streaming network and will follow previous winners who are duking it out to earn the title of “Queen of All Queens” and a $200,000 cash prize.

It’s not Pelosi’s first Ru-deo: She guested on the show in 2018.

At the time, she praised the program’s “pride.”

Once considered a deadly sin, self-love is all the rage these days. It’s even made it into the church. At Duke University’s divinity school recently, Divinity Pride led a special prayer:

And for those who think a plank-spanking, prideful Pelosi would be divine, cross your fingers and hold your remotes.

It’s uncertain whether Nancy will rock the catwalk, but don’t take it off the table.

However she ends up, she’ll be hobnobbing with Hollywood:

In addition to Pelosi, a star-studded roster of celebrity guest judges includes: Cameron Diaz, journalist Ronan Farrow, Ben Platt, fashion designer Betsey Johnson, Tove Lo and Nikki Glaser, among others.

In a promotional clip for the new season, the Speaker gets downright religious with “Can I get an amen?”:

Even the government’s onboard:

Given that fact, and with Nancy cavorting on camera with RuPaul and crew, might a drag show eventually be held at the Capitol?

I’d say there’s more than a tremendous chance. After all, politics has taken on a whole new level of pageantry:

Four years ago, Pelosi told The Hollywood Reporter what politicians could learn from drag queens:

“Authenticity. Taking pride in who you are. Knowing your power — that’s what I talk about on my brief segment on the show. This idea of people believing in themselves, being themselves, taking pride in themselves, is not just a lesson for politicians but for everyone in the country. And that’s why I was so excited and couldn’t resist being on the show.”

Sounds good — after more than two years of lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine requirements, if politicians could only learn their power, maybe they could really throw around their weight.

As for authenticity, let’s hope the 82-year-old soaks in the lesson like a sponge. She can teach it to everyone in Washington when she returns.
