From today's NYT:
Pelosi stopped short of condemning the president's call for slowing the nation's growth rate in carbon emissions.
"In seeking solutions," she said, ''we need to shorten the distance between inconceivable and inevitable.''
Yep. The inconceivable is that the doormatocats will do anything beyond muttering incoherently in a way designed not to offend anyone -- not the people who vote for them, not their corporate masters, much less their republican overlords.
The inevitable is that they will lay down on the porch to facilitate those who enjoy stepping on them.
