See if you can intuit this one:

  1. A bailout plan, created in the White House and pushed extensively by President Bush, is sent to Congress.
  2. A majority (≈60%) of Democrats voted for the bill.
  3. A majority (≈67%) of Republicans voted against the bill.
  4. “Republicans blamed [Nancy Pelosi]… for the vote’s failure.”1

3 Comments to “Republican logic”

  1. ffanatic says:

    Equal parts puzzling and maddening. Like when McCain had to "clarify" (read: retract) what Palin said about Pakistan at her impromptu Q&A whilst getting a cheesesteak in Philadelphia.

  2. Brady says:

    The claim is that Pelosi gave a little speech before the bill that was very polarizing- probably something to the effect of "Haha, Bush f***ed this up. How do you like Big Government now, bitches?"

    I’m sure her comments were indeed inappropriately partisan (that’s how she is), and yet the Republican reaction seems akin to refusing to let a surgeon remove a foreign object from your colon because the nurse told you shouldn’t have put it up there to begin with.

  3. Ben says:

    If Pelosi’s pre-vote barking really did cause some Republicans to vote against the bill out of spite, they must be the most infantile politicians I’ve ever seen. Perhaps they need to go to Time Out and think about what they’ve done.
