The always amazing A.J. Strata points out that Nancy Pelosi and her confreres have painted themselves into somewhat of a sticky corner with their 100-hours rhetoric. Amble on over to read all of it. To me, the money quotes are:
"But ramming bills through the House could end up being little more than a symbolic gesture. The tougher test for Democrats will be getting the same measures through the Senate, where the incoming majority leader, Harry Reid, will have only a one-vote majority and the Republicans will have the procedural power to gum up his agenda."
"The showboating inherent in the 100 hour promise is not on anyone’s national priority list. And when all that work is thrown out to the realities of their situation Democrats will, as they deserve, look petty (for wanting to show off) and inept (for wasting time). "
