Re: Pelosi’s Gambit

Any chance the mainstream media will refer to Pelosi’s procedural maneuver as “The Nuclear Option”?

I didn’t think so.  That’s evidently only for right-wing maniacs who want to force an accountable vote on confirming Bush judges, not for right-thinking liberals who want to avoid an accountable vote on raising Americans’ taxes.  Good to get that straightened out.
