      PELOSI LOWERS THE BOOM
      Wed May 16 2007 14:43:59 ET

      After losing a string of embarrassing votes on the
      House floor because of procedural maneuvering, Speaker
      of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to change the
      current House Rules to completely shut down the floor
      to the minority.

      The Democratic Leadership is threatening to change the
      current House Rules regarding the Republican right to
      the Motion to Recommit or the test of germaneness on
      the motion to recommit. This would be the first change
      to the germaneness rule since 1822.

      In protest, the House Republicans are going to call
      procedural motions every half hour.
