"With fewer than 20 legislative days before the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1, the entire appropriations process has largely ground to a halt because of the ham-handed fighting that followed Republican attempts to lift the moratorium on offshore oil and gas exploration. And after promising fairness and open debate, Pelosi has resorted to hard-nosed parliamentary devices that effectively bar any chance for Republicans to offer policy alternatives.
“I’m trying to save the planet; I’m trying to save the planet,” she says impatiently when questioned. “I will not have this debate trivialized by their excuse for their failed policy.”
Not like she's all that, but give her credit for wearing a scarf to cover her wrinkly old neck while Martha stands as the poster boy for turkey head. Luckily, the country will survive her "leadership" because in most cases when Congress does nothing that is a good thing.
The moratorium on drilling for oil might very well become the straw that broke the fence-sitters back, though, as it becomes more and more difficult for the libs to convince people that expensive gas is preferable to the cheap kind we'd get by digging for more. The Republicans "failed policy" brought us fuel at $2.50 a gallon, and a great part of the reason it crested the $4 barrier was the market knowing that with the Dems in charge we weren't setting up new derricks anytime soon.
Bottom line: The woman is quite insane.
