Shorter House GOP: We Killed The Bailout Bill Because Pelosi Hurt Our Feelings

What a bunch of WATB. The House GOP "Leadership" addressed the media just now after the bailout bill failed and pointed their fingers at Nancy Pelosi

What a bunch of WATB. The House GOP "Leadership" addressed the media just now after the bailout bill failed and pointed their fingers at Nancy Pelosi for giving a speech that upset them. The speech hurt them so much that it forced them to sink the bill and now the market is down more than 600 points. Why are you so mean, Nancy? Don't you know Boehner is a really sensitive guy?

"I believe we could have gotten there today if it weren't for Speaker Pelosi's partisan speech."

So you're willing to kill the bill and let the market plunge 600 points because Nancy gave a mean speech? Wow.

Eric Cantor is particularly hysterical. It looks like he wants to cry. Nancy is so mean!

Barney Frank sums it up best:

"In the sphere of numerology the number of Republicans who ignore what's best for the country because of a speech turns out to be exactly the number of Republicans we need to pass the vote. "

Can you help us out?
