The Republican Party took yet another crushing defeat today when the Democratic House leaders came out saying that they would be willing to approve the auto industry bailout. Nancy Pelosi had formerly been against the bill, saying that the money would probably be drawn from the money meant for fuel efficiency, but she is now standing in support because of the 533,000 jobs lost this November, and her desire to keep more jobs from disappearing.
It seems as the caravan of hybrid cars worked much better for the little three of Detroit than flying in on three individual private jets, as a means to arrive at DC to beg for money. Imagine that.
Oh well. If all the Republicans vote Republican we still can flibuster. Congrats to Saxby Chambliss for winning the spin off election in Georgia!
