Pelosi drops the ball - AIPAC takes all

Pelosi drops the ball - AIPAC takes all
Pelosi may not have gotten everything she wanted this midterm election - but AIPAC sure as hell did.

House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of her own personal victory yesterday, losing the battle to name Rep. Jack Murtha as her own second-in-command.
House Democrats instead voted by a resounding 149-86 for Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer as their new majority leader - a solid rebuke to Pelosi’s ham-handed attempt to install the ethically dubious Murtha.

Pelosi apparently saw no irony at all in vowing, “We will not be dazzled by money and special interests,” and then immediately nominating Murtha, who has spent a lifetime in Congress being coddled by the defense industry and taking good care of its practitioners in return.

And who coddles Hoyer?

Why AIPAC, of course - that's in addition to the Defense industry.
