"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

When the GOP looses the WSJ editorial page

I believe the appropriate term is "lights out."
[The House GOP leadership's] immediate response was to say that many of their Members turned against the bill at the last minute because Ms. Pelosi gave her nasty speech. So they are saying that Republicans chose to oppose something they think is in the national interest merely because of a partisan slight. Thank heaven these guys weren't at Valley Forge.
Whoa... Now to be fair, they also criticize Pelosi for not delivering sufficient Democratic votes, but the harshest words were clearly reserved for the GOP.
