Republicans Go Into Logic Tailspin
It's Pelosi's Fault That Republicans Voted Down the Bailout

Wow. The Republican hacks and flacks seem to have hit the warp drive on their sophistry drives. Douglas Holtz-Eakin has particularly distinguished himself, even, perhaps, surpassing the master bullshitter Tucker Bounds. I just heard him (DHE) assert that this was Pelosi's fault--apparently because (a) she gave a speech attributing the problem to a lack of regulation, thus hurting some Republicans' feelings, and (b) the Dems didn't have enough aye votes to pass the bill on their own. Wow. So, Pelosi deserves more blame than the Republicans who voted nay? And the Democrats, who voted for the bill 2/3-1/3, deserve more blame than the GOP who voted against it 2/3-1/3?

Barney Frank gives the response that the second-graders deserve:

Even though I strongly disagree with them, I can at least have a modicum of respect for those who voted *no* based on principled material opposition.
