A Republican Congressional staffer writes:It's these types of self-inflicted wounds that should, if the world were fair, end political careers. Trent Lott, idiot that he is, got pilloried for making a stupid comment about a friend of his that came off racist--he lost his job as Senate Majority Leader. Nancy Pelosi will, most likely, suffer no blowback for this except in the blogosphere--in fact, she probably will get accolades for being "courageous" or some such nonsense. I wonder why that is?It is simply staggering to me that Pelosi refuses to stand beside America's closest ally. I literally would not have thought this possible, until I saw it this week.Staggering, indeed. We'll see what happens this afternoon.
UPDATE: More of the same shit.
