Smack Down

This is more of a quick hit than a full-fledged post, but I just wanted to express a little shock (and a little joy) that Speaker-in-waiting Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.) has suffered such an abrupt end to the honeymoon by having her handpicked moonbat, Rep. John Murtha (D-Okinawa), rejected for the House Majority Speaker spot in favor of the man who ostensibly deserves it, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.).

I am not quite sure how to read this yet. I am tempted to say it is a first assertion of independence by the slightly more conservative Democrats who were elected last week, in conjunction with other, more liberal, incumbent Democrats who saw the writing on the wall. I cannot see such independence being a long-term trend, particularly given how autocratically the Democrat Party is run. Only time will tell.

Now all we need is a conservative leader in the House to stoke the flames. Mike Pence, where are you?
