This humble blog on 2 April:
John Boehner’s friends plot tea party crackdown
They’ve given John Boehner constant headaches during his three years as speaker.
Now, Boehner’s friends are trying to make sure that a small pocket of tea-party-aligned Republicans won’t have a chance to derail his speakership next year. And if they try, they could be punished.
Who’s afraid of a Republican landslide?
Sometimes I wonder if Boehner and his allies in the House think about that. Have they decided that modest gains which leave them in control of the House are better than a landslide that might topple the current leadership?
I also sometimes wonder about the lack of movement on the IRS scandal.
Who benefits from throttling Tea Party?
