I'm half ready to believe that Rahm convinced Ben Nelson to ratfuck the Republicans. "Get them to cut school construction for poor kids," he (might have) told a visibly nervous Nelson. "It's the most sympathetic item in the bill. It's clear stimulus. It makes sense long-term. It's easy for reporters to understands and voters to remember. It will define the bill as obviously worth, undermine Republican attempts to paint it as a porkfest, completely discredit the centrists, and Nancy Pelosi will simply replenish the funds in conference committee." Then he bit the head off a bear, punched through a wall, and asked Nelson if he didn't mind helping out.
