Speaker-in-waiting Nancy Pelosi, discussing Boehner/GOP phaffing on immigration reform legislation, congresssplains the Constitution to her counterparts:
The Constitution says a majority. It doesn’t say the Hastert rule, or sometimes the Hastert rule, or when I feel like it the Hastert rule. It says the majority. And there are ways to achieve the majority that I hope they will pursue.
IOW: that fig leaf you’re looking for to pretend that it’s someone else’s fault you can’t deliver on a matter of utmost interest to the nation’s largest growing voting block? Ain’t there.
IOOW — Sez Nancy to John: you want to deliver the Latino, Asian, and much else besides vote to the Democrats for a generation? Be my guest.
More of this please. With lots of on the ground organization for 2014 and 16.
