Hoyer beats Murtha

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Yes, it’s Hoyer. And it wasn’t close. 149 to 86.

Questions for your consideration:

– Are you okay with this? (I am.)
– What does it say about Pelosi? Has it weakened her? (In the short-term, perhaps.)
– Will the Dems be able to move on peacefully? Will there be any negative fallout? (Not in the long-term, hopefully.)

Otherwise, let’s move on, shall we?


This and another post on Murtha/Hoyer appeared earlier today at The Carpetbagger Report. There were a lot of comments from readers, many of them putting this contentious battle in perspective or otherwise downplaying its significance. Upon reflection, I, too, think that it was overhyped. I just hope Pelosi and Hoyer can work well together and push ahead with a very promising legislative agenda.

See here and here for those posts.

Now we'll move on.
