I guess my principled Burkean position on John Boehner as Speaker is orange you glad it’s not Eric Cantor. I’m also swayed by the arguments that no one will make a serious effort to take him down. But this is striking:
Fully 52 percent of Republican voters disapprove of the way Boehner handled the negotiations, a 15-percentage point jump from December when the talks were ongoing. Among the most conservative Republican and independent voters, disapproval of Boehner spiked from 36 to 61 percent.
And this is pretty fucking far from WOLVERINES, right?
“I need this job like I need a hole in the head.”
I don’t know what the 27 percenters’ rejection of Boehner means, but I think it means something.
