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.

Speaking of bat shit crazy, NRA nutter Wayne LaPierre is at it again. The mantra of the gun crowd is that bad guys with guns are stopped by good guys with guns. The Washington Navy Yard was crawling with armed good guys, two of whom were shot by Mr. Alexis, their guns added to his collection. So what was crazy Wayne's response? Not enough good guys with guns. I can't believe that people actually take that guy seriously.
