    Thus the insipid display of "bipartisanship" by Sec. Paulsen, Rep. Pelosi and Rep. Boehner.

    ABC News:

    "[Pelosi and Boehner] have an interest in the economy not collapsing on their watch," said Grover Norquist, a tax-cut advocate with ties to President Bush's White House. "Because neither team wants to be seen as saying, 'We're not doing something,' you'll get something that's 50-50."

    Boehner has shown an unusual level of cooperation with Pelosi in putting together the package. He has posed for TV cameras sitting beside her, evoking a rare moment of chummy bipartisanship in a chamber where virtually every issue invites bitter squabbling.
