Pelosi excited about bill’s “momentum”

I’m not joking. That title is for real. See for yourself:

And Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave her strongest comments of the week on Friday, saying “I’m very excited about the momentum building around this bill. We’re one day closer to passing this legislation.”

A year after this started. Three bills. The possibility of passing a bill without actually passing it. The past week spent twisting arms to eek out another dozen votes so this thing can pass by the skin of its razor-sharp teeth. And the Speaker thinks we’re all dumb enough to believe there’s “momentum building around this bill.” Crimony. That kind of panglossian arrogance, it’s no wonder she actually thinks this bill is a good idea and that her ranks will fare better in November for having passed it.
