Pelosi’s Not Weak On National Defense, Right?

Let's ask Insight Magazine

Rep. Nancy Pelosi plans to sideline colleagues who are hawkish on national security in the Democratic leadership in the House.

Democratic Party sources said as House Speaker, Ms. Pelosi plans to block moves that would place hawks into important chairmanships. The sources said a key casualty would be Rep. Jane Harman, a six-term member of Congress who has cooperated with Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.

"Nancy Pelosi wants total party discipline," a source in the Democratic Party leadership said. "If you played ball with the Republicans during this session, then you're not going to be given an important chair in the next session."

Why am I not surprised?

Meanwhile, guess who is going to be the Assistant Majority Leader in the Senate? Give up? Here's a hint

If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."

Meanwhile, Robert KKK Byrd will be in charge of Appropriations, which is like putting the fox in charge of guarding the hen house. Jay "Saddam is an imminent threat" Rockefeller in charge of Intelligence. Great.

Only good news seems to be that Joe Lieberman will be in charge of Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

Interesting, cBS takes a shot at Ted "Swimmer" Kennedy:

Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions: Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. Kennedy, 74, the "liberal lion" of the Senate, continues to march into contentious rhetorical battles with his ideological opposition. He is a leading critic of President Bush and his decision to go to war in Iraq and has criticized Mr. Bush's proposals on health care. Kennedy stood beside the president when he signed the No Child Left Behind education reform legislation, but has since disparaged the bill's implementation.

Rarely do you see Big Media include something like that.
