So Nancy Pelosi waved the white flag

Ooooooh kaaaaaaaay:
House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Panderville) just announced she has dropped procedural blockage and will allow a vote on the Senate’s version of the COVID bill instead of holding the nation hostage by demanding what some commentators called “racial and gender pay equity provisions, diversity on corporate boards, increased use of minority-owned banks by federal offices, and a grab-bag of other diversity-themed requirements.”
So Congress was was working on a deal which presumably contained pork out the wazoo, and Nancy came in at the last minute saying "you have to eliminate the letter 'Q' from the alphabet or we won't pass EMERGENCY ZOMGVIRUSOMYGODWE'REGOINGTODIE!!!!!11!!!eleventy!!!!"

It looks like the GOP cunningly  agreed to her plan.  Oooooooh kaaaaaaay.

so now that the Senate has passed it, can we see what's in it?  Asking for a friend.

Girl politics. Women crave drama, and politics are an emotional issue for them. They are all over the nooz cycle, posing both as heroes and noble victims in this time of somber and grave crisis. Having more than my share of issues with batty, elderly women... I can tell you that Stretch Pelosi would gladly destroy a nation rather than accede to reality. She and all the frooty colours of the rainbow will do to America what they’ve done to California.

Such women make their men crazy too. What’s it gonna cost? Consider your sanity and soul a down payment.
