I find myself in rare agreement with Rep. Raúl Labrador's concluding remarks:
I don’t think [Boehner] should be ashamed of anything he has done. I’m more upset at my Republican conference colleagues. There are Republicans here who apparently always want to fight but they always want to fight the next fight, which has given Speaker Boehner the inability to be successful in this fight. So if anybody should be kicked out, it’s all those Republicans and not Speaker Boehner.
Raúl. The nation has a lot of righteous "kicking out" to do.
The upshot of The Hill article from which the quote is taken is that John Boehner is safe; the bombthrowers interviewed say they forgive him any suspected heresies. Yet, as we know, at heart they're an unforgiving lot, hence their forgiveness, most likely, droppeth not gently, but simply because nobody else wants the wretched job.
Can you imagine waking up each morning to the thought that you must again face 50 or 60 Raúl Labradors? Hell I'd start my day with a bucket of merlot and a pack of non-filtered Luckies, too.
