— and sets her party hopes back four years.
From the WSJ:
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi has demonstrated she can pile on enough pork to bribe enough Democrats to cobble together a bare, partisan majority to “send a message” that has no chance of becoming law. Congratulations.
“Today is an historic day,” Ms. Pelosi said on the House floor. “The new Congress will vote to end the war in Iraq.” But of course the bill does nothing of the sort. If she truly wanted to end the war, the Speaker and her fellow Democrats could simply have used their power of the purse to refuse to fund it. But that would have meant taking some responsibility for what happens in Iraq, which is the last thing Democrats want to do. So they have passed a bill that funds the war while claiming it ends the war.”
What a philandering, pompous and pathetic pile ‘o poop.
