It's Hoyer Over Murtha

Evidently all the Democrats are not as suicidal as Nancy Pelosi. Steny Hoyer beat John Murtha for majority leader.

More on this later. We are having some pretty nasty weather here in NC -- tornado warnings all over the place, including my neck of the woods.

Update: I forgot to add that Nancy Pelosi was elected unanimously by Democrats to serve as Speaker of the House. Her failure to get her choice for majority leader overshadowed her own vote and since her election was never in question I just forgot to even mention it. I have a feeling that won't be the case on the network nightly news. Remember Saint Hillary? Look out for Saint Nancy.

"Top Gun" wisdom: Murtha's ego was writing checks his body (the House of Rep's.) couldn't cash.

I would have loved to have seen the expression on his face when he realized he wasn't going to get the gig.

It's going to be really, really funny when Pelosi starts getting the top-billed coverage she really hasn't had before. All of those little comments and slip-ups that went under the radar will be front-page news.

Sure, she's been a big name for the Dems, but never the opening act...

I'd like to have seen Nancy's facial expression when Hoyer's name was announced. Oh wait. She's not able to make any.

Nancy's first big blow, and the media will have to report it that way. This is getting really fun.

Lorie, keep the head up, eyes open and stay close to a shelter. The fun is just starting, don't need any supporters injured.

Two bad things came out of the Murtha nomination. Nancy got humiliated, and all of Murtha's past & current ethics problems were brought up.

Way to go Nancy!

The old fool probably can't remember that he ran.

Now he has more time to plan his Okinawa deployments.

Back away from Hastings? No... (Below threshold)

Back away from Hastings? No way! The Dem Black Caucus has Nancy firmly in its grasp. Refusing to seat Hastings would be a racial firestorm.

He'll remember he ran. He'll just forget telling Chris Matthews "I have the votes."

I forgot to add that Nancy Pelosi was elected unanimously by Democrats to serve as Speaker of the House.

A meme the GOP tried to use in the last election was "a vote for (Donk candidate name) is a vote for Nancy Pelosi." The response to that was that some of the Donk nominees stated publicly they would not support Pelosi for the speakership (Heath Shuler particularly comes to mind here).

But Pelosi got unanimous support for the speakership...

Handing your next opponent ammunition to use in the next election before you even take office in this election isn't a smart way to go about political bidness.

I 'quote' Michael Dukakis, as played by Jon Lovitz on SNL: "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy."
