    "Business groups stand by Boehner, plot against tea party" with one comment that matches my own:

    “I don’t know of anybody in the business community who takes the side of the Taliban minority,” said Dirk Van Dongen, longtime chief lobbyist for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors who has known Boehner since the lawmaker’s first election.

    In the hallways of the country’s leading trade associations, there is talk about taking on tea party Republicans in at least three states.

    Those ideological wackos are pretty much our Taliban.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
