    Most likely Boehner will bring a bill to the floor that has enough support to pass rather than risk the humiliation of an end run via discharge. But I believe that if it came to it, the votes for it are there. There are still just enough non-crazy Repubs to make it happen. Perhaps this silly delay on the Sandy relief bill vote was a setup for that, to give NE Repubs a plausible excuse to "betray" Boehner. Don't discount the role of kabuki in this.
