Meet the New Boss

Lost in the drama of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi taking the gavel last week was a good, old-fashioned dose of hypocritical secrecy.

Pelosi and her newly empowered pols moved to shut out Republicans in the first hours of Democrat control -- after holding a secret session of both parties -- in what looks like the same old, same old.

That's right: the candidates who lambasted Republicans for a shameful lack of transparency are spending their much-ballyhooed first 100 hours behind closed doors, debating amongst themselves.

Secrecy, it seems, is a bipartisan value. And they say the parties can't agree on anything....

See NFOIC's letter to the Dems for more.
