If it weren't bad enough that Harry Reid is trying to make Mitch McConnell's 'Pontius Pilate Pass the Buck Act of 2011" acceptable to Republicans, you might want to consider that Nancy Pelosi congratulated Mitch McConnell on a job well done.
Stephen F. Hayes, who my wife says is the best looking guy on Bret Baier's panel other than Bret (yeah, I have to hate them both because of that and that when my 5 year old was a baby, she'd stare at Bret Baier every time he came on TV and make sweet eyes at him, but I digress . . .) anyhoo . . . Stephen F. Hayes has a good write up on McConnell's plan and includes this little nugget:
two sources familiar with the discussions at the White House Tuesday afternoon said that Nancy Pelosi offered McConnell “congratulations.”
That should tell Republicans all they need to know about why this deal should be unacceptable.
