  •  They didn't so much in the newt's house either (0+ / 0-)

    tom delay ran rampant in that caucus.  Some considered he had more power than the speaker.  Members feared the hammer more than they feared the newt.  The newt was there to perform (like a trained newt?) for the Village media.  

    I think 2 way loyalty in the publican caucus is a thing of the past.  The speaker is there for the members to get stuff from and to shit on when things don't go their way.

    A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.' Douglas Adams
