Republicans, meet your savior: Nancy Pelosi

I know the Republicans in Congress are leaderless, demoralized, and struggling to cope with having no juice in the legislative process, but they may just find redemption in the person of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  

To put it simply, she's just what the (spin) doctor ordered.

She's provided exactly what the Republicans in Congress have been searching for:  a rallying cry.  Just yesterday, she dismissed bi-partisanship as "process", and indicated that there would be hell to pay if the Senate cut any of the $900 billion from the House bill.

Evidently, Queen Nancy missed the memo from the American public that they want Congress to pause, take a breadth, look a little more closely at all the spending in this bill, and eliminate anything that isn't truly stimulative to the economy.   The Speaker has her own play-book, and it looks something like this:  use the recession to cram every port barrel project any Democrat has ever coveted since the dawn of time ... and do it quickly!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  If this economy is still sputtering by next summer, the Democrats will have to answer for it.  And the Republicans are going to use the bloated stimulus package as exhibit A for winning back the Congress.
