Over at Gristmill, David Roberts reports that Nancy Pelosi is leaving a carbon footprint … on the posteriors of some of her recalcitrant colleagues:

Well, there’s remarkable stuff going on up on the hill today. Thanks to the persistence of Nancy Pelosi (and others), the energy bill has been almost entirely restored to its original strength — at least the House version.

Roberts also tells us:

Pelosi has also imposed the Congressional equivalent of martial law, invoking emergency rules procedures that will allow the bill to go to Rules Committee, get a rule, and bring the bill to the floor all on the same day. That means that tonight will be a battle royal.
