Obligatory "Blind Squirrel" Update

Did Nancy Pelosi find a nut?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tossed cold water on the prospect of reinstating the assault weapons ban, highlighting Democrats’ reluctance to take on gun issues.

Attorney General Eric Holder raised the prospect Wednesday that the administration would push to bring back the ban. But Pelosi (D-Calif.) indicated on Thursday that he never talked to her. The Speaker gave a flat “no” when asked if she had talked to administration officials about the ban.

Of course, lest she upset the "We *heart* fascism!" base on the far left, she did manage to play the Blame Bush Card.

“On that score, I think we need to enforce the laws we have right now,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “I think it's clear the Bush administration didn’t do that.”


Unlike the countless examples, which have been well-documented on this site, of criminals entering the Massachusetts criminal "justice" system, only to be set loose on the streets by the criminal-coddling courts.

How's that "mandatory" one year in prison law working out down there? (cough, snicker, snicker, cough)

Thanks to long-time reader and commenter wolfwalker for the link. To whom I responded:

Maybe she thinks that trying to destroy the economy, cripple our healthcare system, send our public schools into the sewer, AND disarm the citizenry might be seen as "over-reaching".
