Accountability, dammit

Yesterday House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) conducted an extraordinary press conference that was as hilarious as it was outrageous. After being pummelled at the polls last Tuesday, having lost the White House and additional seats in the House of Representatives and the Senate to even more Republican control, Polosi battled back with a fearsome weapon that will cause the GOP to cower in fear, trembling upon the cold, rude floor.

She presented a cartoon.

This cartoon, drawn by Tom Toles was described by Polosi before the cameras. "It shows President Bush..or, at least, someone who looks like President Bush..." sitting before a table that is set with a GOP White House, two houses of a GOP Congress and a GOP Supreme Court. And the President is saying, "Now who do we blame ?"

Pelosi went on with an astonishing boast, as quoted here from the Washington Post,

'Pelosi, addressing reporters after lunching with about 100 House Democrats, said her party will speak out when it believes Bush and the GOP-controlled Congress are mismanaging Iraq, tax policies or the deficit. "The president won't be able to blame anyone, because the Republicans have full control," Pelosi said. Although Republicans have controlled the White House, Senate and House for two years, she said, "the American people did not know that. And now they do." '

Got that? The Democrats are to be feared now, as they are out of power and all the ills of the nation can now be blamed upon the Republicans who control everything. And we can count on Pelosi and the Democrats to wield this awesome weapon like an iron club. You can run, you Republicans, but you cannot hide. Because Nancy Polosi and the Democrats will pierce your ears with a perpetual and nagging shrieking that will make you wish you had never run for office in the first place.

And what will be the consequences of the terrible weapon wielded against the GOP? Pelosi doesn't say. But we can only surmise that the Republicans' trembling has only just begun. When the American voters see Pelosi and the Dems playing partisan politics again like they did before Tom Daschle was bounced out of his Senate seat, the next election will bring a terrible toll indeed (yes, I'm guilty of another horrible pun). The Republicans must fear the awesome fury of even more wins into office.

Then Pelosi will have even more power at her disposal to blame them for all the ills and wrongs of the country.

Please spare us!
