In a shockingly coherent and concise (or shockingly concise and coherent) post, Erick Erickson eviscerates the latest in Boehnerology. The gist:
Republicans in Congress intend to vote today on Plan B, John Boehner’s fall back plan on the fiscal cliff.
The President says he will veto it.
In other words, the Republicans are going to go on record that they will sell out their last remaining principle — no tax increases — and get nothing from the Democrats in return. Nothing.
This may sound trite, but it's an irrepressible truth: When even Erick Erickson can ably deconstruct the idiotic politics of a Republican bill, you know the party has transcended mere gangsterism and entered a zone of some eerie sort of twilight.
