The New York Times, of all sources, delivers a wallop to the behind of the incoming Squeaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco, 100%):
Nancy Pelosi has managed to severely scar her leadership even before taking up the gavel as the new speaker of the House. First, she played politics with the leadership of the House Intelligence Committee to settle an old score and a new debt. And then she put herself in a lose-lose position by trying to force a badly tarnished ally, Representative John Murtha, on the incoming Democratic Congress as majority leader. The party caucus put a decisive end to that gambit yesterday, giving the No. 2 job to Steny Hoyer, a longtime Pelosi rival.
But Ms. Pelosi’s damage to herself was already done....
As incoming speaker, Ms. Pelosi will be dogged by skepticism — from within the party and without — about her political smarts and her ability to deliver a galvanized agenda.
Ouch. I don't think the Divine Ms. P. will be attending any sit-down dinners for a while. (Link via Drudge.)

Maybe being in the minority is not such a bad thing after all.

Now we understand, though, what Democrats mean with their calls for "bipartisanship." They want a united Democratic party.

Well, the Nancy Weasel is just getting started. She actually intends to appoint Alcee Hastings to head the House Intelligence Committee. There are some things she cannot get even Democrats to do.
