We Don't Need No Stinkin' Vote

Hadley Arkes gives us the predictable yet saddening news regarding the fading of pro-life Democrats and a punch drunk Bart Stupak.

But it may not matter any way since Speaker Pelosi is considering sliding the health "care" bill through without a vote.

Who needs representative democracy when you are unassailable? The image that comes to mind is that of the sea serpent in Lewis's Voyage of the Dawn Treader when it thought it had destroyed the ship: a gleeful, self-satisfied attitude among the flotsam and jetsam. Or, perhaps it is more like ouroboros?
