Sporting an even bigger-than-usual rictorous smile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi emerged from the last Democrat causus meeting Sunday afternoon wielding a sledgehammer-sized gavel. She promised to use it tonight when the House votes on the obscenity that is being called a "health care" bill.
Seriously, the woman gets my vote for the most nauseating human being, evah.
Update. We've been stupaked. Bart Stupak (D-Mich) sells his vote for an executive order not worth the paper it's printed on. Actually, the word I have for this assclown isn't "chump." With Stupak caving, apparently they now have the votes.
From Politico: At the news conference, Stupak said the language of the order clears up any ambiguity about federal funding of abortion in the reform bill. “We have the assurances from the president that he won’t rip this up tomorrow,” Stupak said.
Sure--how about Tuesday. You soulless jerk.
Update #2. It's 6:35 p.m. Central time on Sunday night and "stupak" is already a verb on the conservative blogs. I've been amusing myself (hey--it's been a long, ugly day) sitting here refreshing the Facebook page of Dr. Dan Benishek, the Republican running for Congress against Stupack. He started out with about 600 "friends" about an hour ago and now he's got 4,500. People are so pissed about this bill. There are Web designers offering to set up a web page for him and people promising donations to his campaign right and left. Wow.
Sen. Mike Pence (R-IN) to Stupak: "You traded 30 years of pro-life law for a promise from the most pro-abortion president in history."
