    Boner's all done. Cantor just solidified his TeaBagger faction, the rest of the GOP either signs up with the suicidal nutjobs or break with him.
    Now that they've broken the Hastert rule and voted with the Dems, the divisions are stark, the knives are out and Pelosi could get enough disgruntled Republicans to take the Speakership!
    The question I have then is: Would that mean she leads a Republican Majority house? Or would it flip "Majority" control? It would seem to me that a split of that magnitude would make the current majority Republicans into two parties neither of which holds majority status.
    And this matters because the Majority leadership controls that business of the House, determines what bills move, which die and who sits where.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
