Two names to conjure with:
- Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.)
- Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.)
This pair of quivering dermatophytes are respectively the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman and the second-ranking House Democratic leader. You can probably play their song without me even humming a few bars: Pelosi's stance "could backfire on the party." Twisted Cal gals Jane Harman and Ellen Tauscher have articulated a House clone of the Republican Senate resolution calling for "a period of significant transition to full Iraqi sovereignty" and a Bushmill explanation of his "strategy for the successful completion of the mission in Iraq."
But of course la bella Pella stands firm, right?
Wrong. I quote her press flack:
"While Pelosi estimates more than half of House Democrats favor a speedy withdrawal, she will lobby members in today's meeting against adopting this as a caucus position."That's right, not a typo, against against against.
Aaahh Nan, you still have my, um, attention; but my heart is broken.
