She can’t pull it through

This was overheard in a discussion about Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan.  The speaker was saying that while Tonya may have known of the planned attack,  she didn’t think she could “pull it through”.  This is a mashup of “pull it off” and “go through with it”, both meaning to be able to accomplish something.  A big thanks to John Kooser who heard this one and passed it on.
