Nancy Pelosi "Shares Some Views" With Functional Retards: "A Bill Can Be Bipartisan Without Bipartisan Votes"

Polls say the public wants a truly bipartisan compromise -- and, if that's not in the offing, 75% or thereabouts say the bill should not be passed. But the Democrats refuse to start the process over, therefore insuring there will not be any "bipartisan" compromise on the bill they're preparing to ram through on a party-line vote.

How to square the circle? Well, how about if we redefine "bipartisan" as "intensely partisan on a party-line vote."

I thought Nancy Pelosi's claim that she "shares some views" with the Tea Partiers was the stupidest spin we'd hear from her today.

I was wrong.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that Republicans have left their mark on the healthcare bill and should accept that the bill will go forward.

"They've had plenty of opportunity to make their voices heard," she said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning. "Bipartisanship is a two-way street. A bill can be bipartisan without bipartisan votes. Republicans have left their imprint."

No, we'll leave our imprint on your botoxed face in November, Minority Leader Pelosi.

Minority Leader? Not even that. Her caucus will strip her of her leadership post and she'll probably retire.

The public option, for example, has been stripped from the bill because Republicans were so adamantly against it, she said.

"They've had a field day going out and misrepresenting what the bill says," Pelosi said. "But that's what they do."

On ABC's "This Week," just a few days after the bipartisan healthcare summit, Pelosi said, "What's the point of talking about it any longer?"

Oh God I'd almost forgotten how intensely I loathe this woman.

I cannot wait for November.

More Pelosi: Fall On Your Swords For Me, Minion-Bitches: Embracing the coming rout.

As soon-to-be former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel says: Never let a crisis go to waste.

Democrats might as well take advantage of their crisis, Speaker Pelosi thinks.

Incidentally, it is "Speaker" Pelosi. As opposed to "Thinker" Pelosi.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue's massive role in this election year.

Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program "This Week."

"We're not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress," she said. "We're here to do the job for the American people."

...

It's unclear whether Pelosi's remarks will embolden or chill dozens of moderate House Democrats who face withering criticisms of the health care proposal in visits with constituents and in national polls. Republican lawmaker unanimously oppose the health care proposals, and many GOP strategists believe voters will turn against Democrats in the November elections.

I'm not sure either. However, if we credit some of the supposedly-moderate Blue Dogs of actually believing, somewhat, in a bit of moderation, they might be resentful that archliberals from even more liberal districts are telling them to not only go against their own beliefs and consciences, but to be happy about losing their seats as they do so.

They might be a little annoyed that this heavily-botoxed leftist is so blithely unconcerned about their views and their careers.
