Worked out real well for Pelosi...due to her partisan attack the bill is loaded with add-ons that the Republicans wanted all along. Maybe int he future she'll learn to keep her mouth shut.
Putting aside the Limbaugh soundbite about her "partisan attack" (must have left the poor neocons weaping) it didn't make a bit of difference, other than highlighting the lame excuse the minority leaders grasped for - that you so eagerly lapped up- to explain their complete lack of leadership in their own conference.

Please...this goes down as a political defeat for the Dems and egg on Pelosi's face. She tanked a bill and then a bill even more to her disliking replaced it. It's a huge backfire for Pelosi and her fellow Dems.

Again? No need to repeat - I heard Rush's spin yesterday.

Obviously not the case when Linsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner endorsed the bill and couldn't deliver their votes. Pelosi's speech was not part of the Bill, and if you really believe the neocon nitwits who want a market solution to this marke problem were actually going to vote for this bill, but changed their mind because their feelings were hurt than those are the nitwits who are responsible for the bipartisan addition of christmas ornatments now in the revised bill.

Spin it any way you want - the silly sound bites only get more lame.

FYI...I've never listened to Rush Limbaugh. Seems like he has the right idea thought.
