Every vote doesn't necessarily count now that it's her side doing the counting.
ouse of Representatives used to have rules, such as
- RULE XX
2. (a) Unless the Speaker directs otherwise, the Clerk shall conduct a record vote or quorum call by electronic device. In such a case the Clerk shall enter on the Journal and publish in the Congressional Record, in alphabetical order in each category, the names of Members recorded as voting in the affirmative, the names of Members recorded as voting in the negative, and the names of Members answering present as if they had been called in the manner provided in clause 3 [call of the roll]. A record vote by electronic device shall not be held open for the sole purpose of reversing the outcome of such vote. Except as otherwise permitted under clause 8 or 9 of this rule [Postponement of proceedings; Five-minute votes] or under clause 6 of rule XVIII [voting in Committee of the Whole], the minimum time for a record vote or quorum call by electronic device shall be 15 minutes.

Last week, Desperatebrats summarily amended that "rule"
by striking every instance of the word "Clerk" and inserting therein "Chair," and inserting after "15 minutes" the words "unless the Chair declares otherwise before, during, or after such vote or call."
But what else would one expect these arbitrary and capricious Dictatorats to do whenever they're bound and determined to win a vote despite its tallied outcome?
Besides, what good are "rules" and promises to a Democorruptic Party politician if any or all of them can't be outright broken or bent at a moment's notice?
- Ironically, Democrats last year criticized Republicans for leaving votes open until the majority secured enough votes to win. They campaigned on the promise they would uphold the voting rules to ensure the will of the House prevailed.
"Another promise broken," said [Texas congressman Kevin] Brady. "Democrats were right to criticize us in the past for not keeping to strict voting rules. Unfortunately, now it's back to business as usual in Washington, just a different party arrogantly bending the rules to suit their needs."
This goes beyond arrogance. It signals more than any Democrassic Party politician's everyday act of corruption or abuse of power.
Demostatists have transformed "our" House into their private plantation, replete with servants servilely subject to the will and whims of malevolent masters — "and," to quote Sieg Heil!ary, "you knowha'm talkin' about."
Between blatantly ignoring House rules and increasingly gutting its ethics, Demoslaverat Party politicians remain so stolidly stuck in the past "moving on" down their same old tired, decrepit Always Berate Bush™ campaign trail, they have little time to busy themselves with anything else.
They should definitely keep it up. Demasteratic Party politicians are soon going to be attending the memorial service they've been preparing for their own careers. Except not even they will be able to inappropriately turn it into another of their repulsive pep rallies.
