    Boy that sure didn't take long. Don't let the spin fool you: This is an absolutely humiliating defeat for the new, future Speaker.

    Looks like the next 2 years won't be so bad after all. The one thing you can always count on from democrats when they are in power is a lot of in-fighting... so that provides a fair share of entertainment value.

    Many people don't realize it but this Pelosi Witch is far more hateful and dangerous than poor old Hillary ever thought of being.

    Don't let those $50,000 teeth and the million dollar grin fool you this women can bring a lot of trouble to America, I hope the sane democrats can keep her in line, Murtha is no better that is why she likes him, the people have spoken now sit back and watch the show. :D

    Ironic how the righties are glad the conservative, anti-abortion, Murtha lost and the more liberal Hoyer won. I don't think Pelosi lost anything in this battle. She showed loyalty, did what she was obliged to, and didn't do any real arm twisting. If she had, the vote would have been closer.

    By the way, Pelosi won unanimous support of the Democrats to be Speaker.

    Almost as humiliating as being a Republican on 11/7. :rolleyes:

    Spin, spin spin... :rolleyes:

    On election day, Republicans got whupped - and deservedly so. Thing is, it really wasn't all that out of the norm for an incumbent, off-year President so I am not sure how it could be considered "humiliating". But now the newly elected democrat House - not even 2 weeks removed from the election - is already starting to fracture and the (supposed) leader has just been slapped in the face by her own party.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer witch..!!

    Aren't you glad the Democrats decided to give power to someone not as corrupt as Murtha?

    What scares me about this whole bit is that Pelosi would even consider a shady cat like Murtha after all the "corruption" problems we've seen in government. It just goes to show you that we're probably headed for more of the same. I wish these sides would elect some new blood into positions of merrit. I think I saw a headline that said Trent Lott was back as a leader for the GOP. HUH? WTF is going on with these same old incompitent retreads? Elect new blood please. I'm very skeptical of what Pelosi will bring. As heartened as I am of the descriptions given the newly elected Dems to office, is as disheartened as I am as having Pelosi as leader.

    The first bad sign was when Pelosi herself was elected Speaker. She's the worst thing to happen to the Democrats and they haven't even been sworn in yet.

    What I am glad about is the fact that the ultra-liberal Nancy Pelosi has received her first major defeat (and a slap in the face) no more than 10 days after her ascension to power.

    Why, Pujo, mah boy..!! That there's the most smartest thing you've ever done gone and said...!!!

    I agree with the above statement 100% but I haven't made any such post along those lines since I didn't want to be accused of displaying sour grapes. 2006 reminds me of 1992. In 1992, democrats won the Presidency and control of both houses of Congress. It was the best thing that has happened to Republicans in the past 25 years.

    Seymour, my grossly ignorant and moronic friend, you need to work on the reading comprehension - and you need to stop deliberately misquoting me. What I said was (direct quote):

    "In 1992, democrats won the Presidency and control of both houses of Congress. It was the best thing that has happened to Republicans in the past 25 years."

    1992 was indeed the best thing to happen to Republicans in the past 25 years because it set the stage for the most historic upheaval of Congress in an off-cycle election year in the history of the United States. That ain't spin. That's verifiable fact.

    So then according to that same logic, Bush winning re-election in '04 was the best thing to happen to the Democrats in 25 years. Is that what you're trying to get at?

    God be with you Pujo, it is because of grinning screwball whacko's like Pelosi/Dean/Kerry that I left the democratic party, I am glad they didn't cave in to her, but she isn't through yet, her "Liberal Arrogance" will drive her on to more batty crap, she is good for the republicans 2008, by then the people will be so sick of her Socialist Left Wing Crap the republicns will have no problems at all, they will landslide again.
