The GOP Loses to a Girl

I guess the only thing more painful than a devastating legislative defeat will be the weeks of fawning over Nancy Pelosi that will follow (and which has already begun).

At the end of the day, health care reform looks to be as much Pelosi's brainchild as anyone's else. We get it: conservatives hate her. She's a woman in power. She's from San Fransisco. She doesn't come off very well on TV ... But she can pretty clearly play ball with the rest of the boys. Like it or not, what Pelosi managed to pull off was nothing short of monumental and the fact that she irritates the shrillest faction of the conservative base almost as much as Hillary Clinton used to makes her victory all the more enjoyable.
