Cutting and Running

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (who’s looking a lot like a certain junior senator from New York these days) suffered her first major defeat yesterday, when her own colleagues rejected John “Cut and Run” Murtha, her choice to be majority leader. Funny how the press has been playing old Abscam tapes of Murtha over the last couple of days. Too bad they didn’t do it when he was undermining the troops in Iraq last year. It’s also funny how, now that they actually have some power and responsibility, the Democrats are quietly abandoning their “get out of Iraq” line. It’s amazing what happens to your rhetoric when you are actually held accountable.
