You know you’ve gone too far when you’ve pissed off C-Span — this is like getting Mother Teresa to take a swing at you:

Democrats’ apparent decision to come up with a final health care bill not only behind closed doors but within a very select group of negotiators is drawing criticism not only from expected quarters, but from the media.

Both C-SPAN and House Republicans are reminding President Obama that he once pledged to have the health care negotiations carried on the gavel-to-gavel cable network.

“As your respective chambers work to reconcile the differences between the House and Senate health care bills, C-SPAN requests that you open all important negotiations, including any conference committee meetings, to electronic media coverage,” C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb wrote in a letter to Obama and congressional leaders that the network released this morning.

It seems like only yesterday Stretch Pelosi pledged to lead the most honest, open and ethical Congress in history.

Another Obama promise down the hope toilet?
