The Pelosi Principle: forget them!

A nice little quote from the DEWDROPs' Joan of Arc, Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Speaking on the vote on the conference report on HR 1308, the Cut the Taxes and Fuck the Deficit Act of 2004, which passed 339-65 [1], she said
This is political. My advice to my colleagues is, when they are dealing politically on the floor, you deal with it any way you need to deal with it.

When elected Speaker, does she propose to colour-code for the benefit of voters the non-political votes on which they could expect their representatives to vote on principle?

  1. All noes Dems; 125 voting in favour, 15 not voting.
