Now we know which Republicans need to be primaried out of office.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

Yes.  Shoot anybody who disagrees with you.

You realize, of course, that most members are in safe districts and invulnerable to any primary challenge.  But, Jim DeMint at Heritage and Matt Hoskins at SCF want you to throw your money at them so they can make  you think there's a real chance these guys will be voted out.

Only 69 members were cowed by FreedomWorks.  That's far fewer than anyone anticipated.  At some point, even these guys will get tired of the fighting and actually work to get some things done.

Wow, Rapunzel, you got that vote up fast. Thanks for that. I note the guy from my district voted for it but of the names who voted "no", I see some very good people.

One other thing about this vote. Recall how Boehner was whining,
Quote
"You mean the groups that came out and opposed it before they ever saw it?" a visibly angry Boehner told reporters Wednesday, his tone rising. "They're using our members and they're using the American people for their own goals. This is ridiculous."
[emphasis added]

But, John, Ryan and Mophead only reached an agreement on this budget two days ago, so, John, are you telling us the members of the House were able to familiarize themselves with all the details of a $1.012 trillion budget that is covering both 2014 & 2015? Or did they just support it before seeing it because the House leadership used them for their own goals?

My idiot Congresscritter did as well, using the excuse "it's for the troops."  He already got a nasty e-mail from me and has lost my support and vote.  After backing the NSA, he had one more chance and just blew it.
