Emanuel takes a pass on SD abortion bill

The gals at Firedoglake quite rightly go bananas at the latest betrayal from House honcho Rahm Emanuel.
Apparently taking time out from parachuting his trained seals into likely CDs, he's gone out of his way to give a pass to the noxious SD abortion bill that Gov Mike Rounds just signed.
And you have to love the anonymouse kicker:
He wouldn't spell out the reasons, but a top party staffer (who declined to be quoted out of deference to his bosses) told NEWSWEEK: "These guys are gun-shy because they're used to getting clobbered on the issue."
With this kind of service from the Dems, little wonder that NARAL goes off the rails and endorses Chafee, fails to support an Alito filibuster, etc, etc.
Any suggestions for the identity of the anonymouse? (Hint: I sense a recognizable idiolect.)
