The Wicked Witch is Back~Pelosi wins, America loses

Washington (CNN) -- House Democrats voted to make Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, their leader for the 112th Congress Wednesday, overcoming objections from moderates who argued that she was partly responsible for the party's overwhelming defeat at the polls two weeks ago.

Pelosi turned back a challenge from North Carolina Rep. Heath Shuler, a member of the party's diminished centrist "Blue Dog" faction, in a 150 to 43 vote. The speaker -- now set to be House minority leader in January -- retained the solid support of party liberals, who have noted her fundraising prowess and past ability to lead congressional Democrats to power, among other things.

So, Pelosi's prowess in fundraising and croanysim,

this makes her the "moral character" of choice?

Her idiocy has awakened more than a few folks, and I can't imagine that will change.

Her face on the other hand.....(he shudders)...that's another story.

I like broccoli...I must be a terrorist.

this might be

a good thing if youre a republican. Im not sure that keeping Pelosi in a position of authority will do much to bolster the democratic image over the next two years for the next election cycle. But then again, a lot can happen in two years, we'll only have to wait and see.

I guess with 50 some odd votes from her own state

she figured it was hers to lose.

If districts were capped at 50,000 there'd be a smaller percentage of Democrats in Cali and she wouldn't have been a shoe-in.

All may not be lost.

Last I heard she wasn't fond of Barky. In fact, she wants to take him down.

Maybe she won't be so bad in that spot after all.

And of course, this keeps her in the spotlight so she doesn't "disarm" Liberty candidates. She remains a threat if the Dems regain control of the House.

Hell, I'd bet now she challenges Obama for the 2012 nomination.

The only thing dumber that RINOS

are Democrats. They get to use her face on more TV ads in 2 years. Funny.


150 to 43
