Wow, so I posted this less than an hour ago, and then I go to check some news sites and, oh well, wouldn’t you know it..

House Approves Bailout on Second Try

At 1:21 p.m., applause and cheers echoed through the House chamber as the number of “aye” votes crossed the threshold needed for passage with just seconds remaining in the official 15-minute voting period. The vote was 263 to 171.

And in a sign of the urgency surrounding the package, Congressional staff rushed the newly printed legislation into a news conference where Democratic leaders gathered after the vote and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, signed it, at exactly 2 p.m.

And really, what’s the deal with the super smiley Nancy Pelosi here? Seems like quite a change from her little angry speech on the house floor the other day. Where did her outrage over a $700 billion dollar bailout go?
