Pelosi and the Purse

So newly minted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has hinted that Congress may deny President Bush the funds he needs to get his "surge" on. As I've noted previously, words are cheap and talk is even cheaper (no paper costs involved). But it is encouraging to see someone finally willing to take Congress' role as purveyors of the purse seriously.

And I could make a crack about how it figures that the first female Speaker would be the one to be concerned about purse strings but I'll bite my tongue. Though I'm sure there will be some on the right who have no such qualms.

Meme has the roundup.
