Come Into My Parlor, Said The Spider To The Fucking Idiot

No sooner had Glenn Thrush reported on the Republicans' failure to touch Nancy Pelosi, full with quotes from the dude who ran ads against her in 2006, than Patrick McHenry came out and said “Our goal is to bring down approval numbers for Pelosi and for House Democrats. That will take repetition. This is a marathon, not a sprint.”

There's nothing inconsistent about Thrush's two reports, though, once you factor in the fact that Patrick McHenry is basically the bright young face of total Republican idiocy. I look forward to watching him embark on a marathon strategy doomed to failure.

Whenever their is a republican speaker of the house they seem to get into trouble e.g. Delay and Gingrich. Republicans really don't seem to understand why the same thing isn't happening to Pelosi. It might be because she is not an idiot, but part of being a republican is that you assume everyone is an amoral jerk.
