Pelosi's Pick Rejected Crack In Her Grip?

Why after losing so many seats in the House with a former Speaker who incites
The Blues would vote for her as Minority Leader would keep inquiring minds up all night
She has ruled her party with an iron fist and quashed any dissent
But when the smoke cleared all she could do is deny why against the Blues the election went
So it is refreshing that her rank and file are starting to show signs of revolt
Refusing to elect her choice for a plum chair in a secret vote
One would hope that the drubbing against Reid
Might prompt some  independence from Reid that the Senate on both sides needs
Keystone needs not just sixty votes but 7 more
To overcome Obama’s threatened veto if it passes on the Senate floor
Pallone the new minority chair on energy is not is the shadow of the Bay Area Greens
Maybe he can help his fellow Blues from the War on Fossil Fuels be weaned
