  •  But then Boehner gets voted out as speaker (1+ / 0-)

    If there are 233 Republicans in the new House, and he gets 23 to vote with the Democrats, that means he will be voted out by a vote of 210 to 23.  I suppose that could get him a chapter in Profiles in Courage, if JFK were alive and writing his book today, but the words Boehner and courage don't go together.
