Saying No To The Moonbat Firewater

House Donks vote 149-86 for Steny Hoyer as Majority Leader. Murtha reportedly is "redeploying" to Okinawa as a result.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi is off to the ladies' room in order to wipe about a dozen eggs' worth of yoke off her face. Probably not for the last time.

Are you having fun yet, Nancy?

YIPS from Steve-O

Verily I say unto thee that this news is worthy of the ultimate Nelson Muntz of all time:

Anyone want to take any bets on whether Nancy lasts longer than President MacKenzie Allen?

Hot Air is trying to not overdue the schadenfreude. Screw that--wallow, baby!

FURTHER YIPS from Steve-O: Pax-Pelosi was fun while it lasted:


UPDATED YIPS! from Robbo:

Arianna Huffington looks for the silver lining for her gal Nancy:

And don't shed any tears for Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi. Even though her guy lost, this was still a big win for her. A victory for taking a stand -- and for her leadership. Because that's what real leaders do, they take stands. They listen to their hearts and follow their gut. If you only jump into the fights you're sure you can win -- notches in the W column that will look good on your political resume -- you're a hack, not someone who can move the party and the country forward. It's not about trying to have a spotless record; it's about knowing which battles are worth fighting, whatever the outcome.

It bodes well for Pelosi that was willing to spend her political capital right off the bat -- especially on the issue that will define her time at the helm. Far too many modern politicians save their political capital until it's lost all its value.

Wait for see, Pelosi was speaking truth to power!

And speaking of "notches in the W column," isn't taking a stand, listening to your heart and following your gut exactly what the denizens of the Puffington Host routinely vilify Dubya for doing in Iraq?

Blimey...this "leadership" business is trickier than I thought! **

Hear! Hear! to Steve-O's call to wallow. Or, to quote Daryle Singletary:

Blue lights flashing in my rear-view mirror
The sheriff says, "Boy I should have known it was you
You've got fourteen people in the back of this truck
I've warned you twice and now I'm writing you up."
I said, "Officer, what have I done?"
He smiled and said, "Boy, you're having too much fun."

Too much fun? What's that mean?
It's like too much money, there's no such thing
It's like a girl too pretty, with too much class
Being too lucky, a car too fast
No matter what they say I've done
I ain't never had too much fun

There was a fight Friday night at the Stumble Inn
Me and ol' Harley just had to join in
Next thing you know we were both seeing stars
They threw us out and closed down the bar
I said, "The Long Branch is open. The night's still young
And we ain't never had too much fun."

(Repeat chorus)

No matter what they say I've done
I ain't never had too much fun
Give me the reins and let me run
'Cause I ain't never had too much fun

Her first defeat. Here's where her plastic smile will be truly tested.
