Continue Fucking Off

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dialed up the rhetoric before Speaker John Boehner’s plan to raise the debt limit heads to the House floor for a vote, declaring it a “job-killer” and saying seniors could “kiss their Medicare good-bye.”

“If you believe in that the education of our children, the retirement of our seniors, the creation of jobs in a fiscally sound way, you couldn’t possibly vote for the bill that the Republicans are bringing to the floor today,” Pelosi said Thursday.

There is exactly one difference between Reid and Boehner: whether the debt ceiling gets raised in one or two increments. Pelosi wants to draw a distinction that doesn’t exist. The facts aren’t on her side, so she pounds the table.

She talks a good game, but every time she steps up to the podium from here on out I’m just going to hear, “It is clear we must enter an era of austerity” repeated on an endless loop. She failed as a champion of liberals principles: when the Dems had the majority her job was to serve up the caucus for whatever piece of shit compromise Obama was laying out, and now that they don’t she’s irrelevant.

Just retire already.
