Nancy Pelosi Ain’t No SOHILF, But …

Nancy Pelosi before the vote today:

Do you get the sense she was hoping the bill would fail? Here’s her comments after the vote did fail:

The long and short of it is that the Democrats get to say they voted for this bill (140-95), but the House Republicans (65-133) defeated it. So when the economy goes into an even deeper shitter, Americans will see that Republicans brought us there, and Republicans kept us from any chance of even theoretically avoiding it.

Basically, what Pelosi did today was all but ensure an outcome that I have been predicting for nearly two years: Landslide for Obama. Yet she gets to honestly say that she led her party in trying to help this thing get passed.

McCain’s camp knows this. They know the game is over. That’s why they’re been screaming “Obama is to blame! Pelosi is to blame” since the vote results came out this afternoon.

They have to scream that. But it’s a tough sell. One that Americans ain’t buyeen’ (as Sarah would say).

for the money has gone too far
