Nancy Smash! (Immigration Edition)

Speaker-in-waiting Nancy Pelosi, discussing Boehner/GOP phaffing on immigration reform legislation, congresssplains the Constitution to her counterparts:

The Constitution says a majority. It doesn’t say the Hastert rule, or sometimes the Hastert rule, or when I feel like it the Hastert rule. It says the majority. And there are ways to achieve the majority that I hope they will pursue.

IOW:  that fig leaf you’re looking for to pretend that it’s someone else’s fault you can’t deliver on a matter of utmost interest to the nation’s largest growing voting block?  Ain’t there.

IOOW — Sez Nancy to John: you want to deliver the Latino, Asian, and much else besides vote to the Democrats for a generation?  Be my guest.

More of this please.  With lots of on the ground organization for 2014 and 16.
