WHY can't I bleed these brakes?

This car never ceases to amaze me... I completely flushed the brake system on all 4 corners, in the right order, using the right procedure, etc, etc. After running at least 2/3 of a 1L brake fluid bottle through the system, I STILL have a ridiculously long pedal and pathetically little braking power.

I started at the right rear, then LR, RF, LF. I pumped them until clean fluid came out using the standard buddy-system procedure and always keeping the reservoir above 1/2 full, and yet they're no better than when I started. WHAT is going on here?!?
