The End of Government
I am cynical about the main stream Republicans. I think they'll cave to the extremist wing of the party out of fear that they'll be primaryed and lose their office. In the end, the public may blame the Tea Party, but historians will blame John Boehner's cowardly refusal to stand for principal over political expediency. That's a hell of a thing to be remembered for.
Someone should remind Mr. Boehner that the Speakership is a constitutional office and not a political one. It's his duty to be a statesman rather than a party hack.
