Pelosi drops the ball - AIPAC takes all
Pelosi may not have gotten everything she wanted this midterm election - but AIPAC sure as hell did.
House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of her own personal victory yesterday, losing the battle to name Rep. Jack Murtha as her own second-in-command.
House Democrats instead voted by a resounding 149-86 for Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer as their new majority leader - a solid rebuke to Pelosi’s ham-handed attempt to install the ethically dubious Murtha.
Pelosi apparently saw no irony at all in vowing, “We will not be dazzled by money and special interests,” and then immediately nominating Murtha, who has spent a lifetime in Congress being coddled by the defense industry and taking good care of its practitioners in return.
And who coddles Hoyer?
Why AIPAC, of course - that's in addition to the Defense industry.
And, he's not the only staunch Zionist heading the Democratic House - Rahm Emmanuel takes fourth place, to head the Democratic caucus.
What a line up - AIPAC couldn't ask for anything more.
Meanwhile, Americans voted themselves out of one Zionist House and into another.
How many times must congressmen (and women) be stacked in AIPAC's favor for Americans to realize that the game is rigged?
