    Poor Huck, the Republicans are threatening to listen to reason so he has to threaten to take his marbles and go home.
    I guess it comes down to who has more to lose.
    Huck still has his flock to fleece, but he won't have nearly as much clout, or get invited onto nearly as many talk shows if he is no longer a big deal in the Republican party. He'll be a lot more reluctant to leave than he pretends.
    On the other hand, even though the Republican leadership knows that all the naked bigotry is killing them nationally,  if they alienate the Christianist right, they'll have trouble even winning regionally, which seems to give Huck the whip.
    I guess my ancient Roman side is coming out, but I'm just sitting back enjoying the show and hoping to see more blood spilled.
