Appeasing the Restive Moonbats

What’s a Democratic House Speaker, eager to appease her lefty, BDS addled base to do when news stories come out that look like this –
Democrats Bow to Bush’s Demands in House Spending Bill
Dems cave on spending
Deal would give Bush victory on war funding

While at the same time some of the biggest mouths in reality based community are putting up posts like this:
Time For New Leadership in Congress
I’ll vote against my liberal Democratic Congressmen
“There is No Democratic Party in Congress”

Now keep in mind this is just over the last couple of days and doesn’t include all the waterboarding stuff from earlier.

Well, here’s one way to deal with it. Pelosi: Republicans `like’ Iraq War

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans on Thursday, saying they want the Iraq war to drag on and are ignoring the public’s priorities.

“They like this war. They want this war to continue,” Pelosi, D- Calif., told reporters. She expressed frustration over Republicans’ ability to force majority Democrats to yield ground on taxes, spending, energy, war spending and other matters.

“We thought that they shared the view of so many people in our country that we needed a new direction in Iraq,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference in the Capitol. “But the Republicans have made it very clear that this is not just George Bush’s war. This is the war of the Republicans in Congress.”

That ought to keep them happy for a couple of hours anyway.

  1. Off-topic: you might wanna blog about that thing in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Quite frankly, people are reading you because you write better than most journalists, and are more thorough than most op-ed writers.

    I think the AJC just wants to take cheap shots at LGF and the like. That’s fine, but given that real journalism can be done on the ultra-cheap, their shots aren’t as cheap as they think. I guess I should call their shots “expensive” shots then.
