In yet another sign that Democrats seem to be totally clueless about what happened on Tuesday (See: President Obama’s Wednesday press conference and his upcoming Sunday night interview on 60 Minutes), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D. Ca.) has advised her remaining collegues in the House that she will seek the position of House minority leader come January.
Among the reasons cited by Ms. Pelosi is that she is “driven by the urgency of protecting… Medicare.” No, that’s not a typo, she actually said that.
Sorry folks, but I am compelled to ask, after slashing $500 billion from Medicare earlier this year, is there anything left to protect?
UPDATE (Jim): The Republicans on the other hand are ecstatic about this. Or as AP at HotAir put it .. “Champaign corks a poppin”.
We didn’t get to spray the champagne on Tuesday because, after all, the results weren’t about us. As everyone from Mitch McConnell and John Boehner on down recognizes, the election was, in P.J. O’Rourke’s words, a “restraining order” on the Democrats, not a vote of confidence in the GOP. No corks a-poppin’ under those circumstances, no matter how pleased we might have been with the outcome.
Today, though? Poppin’.
The woman who finally figured out how to create jobs (64 Republican jobs) has decided to stick around. The most loathed legislator (well, now that Grayson is gone) will be around for two more years. I thought that the Republicans might have a tough time adding to their totals, but, this pretty much looks like 2012 will be a great year to run as a Republican. Ya think?

Makes me think of a song. Well, everything makes me think of a song. Rock on my little mobsters. Rock on! Ehhhhhhhhh!
