Ignoring the fact that House Republicans didn't so much boycott earlier meetings as that they were EXCLUDED from earlier meetings on the bailout, Nancy Pelosi had the gall a little while ago to go before cameras and say that they boycotted meetings in the week and that their non-participation made them, yes, quote "unpatriotic." If Boehner had said that about Pelosi, every establishment media outlet in the country would be having conniption fits for about a week and said that it blew up the negotiations and showed that Boehner and Republicans are McCarthyite, etc. But I bet you don't hear a peep out of them against Pelosi. So let me be the first to say it: Pelosi is a rank damagogue, a despicable human being, a person who wants the United States to lose in Iraq, a bad-faith bargainer, and the worst excuse for a speaker of the House in history.
