Its also a good time to give some praise to the first woman speak of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

She’s been continually demon-ized by the right, either because she’s effective or simply because they see her as opposition. Both probably. One television show went as far as to say Pelosi is the most powerful woman in US history. That’d be a fun argument.

The House has more than 200 bills passed and waiting for action in the senate, where small states carry as much weight as big states and people like James Inhofe (climate change denier to the stupid max) can screw things up.
