    of discipline, usually, when it comes to voting their issues.  That's one reason they were able to hold Obama hostage so effectively for so long.

    We should learn from that.  One reason that's so is that the Republicans know that anybody who voted against the party on the continuing resolution was going to get his ass nuked with a primary challenge from the right.

    So there ARE benefits to being WILLING AND READY to jettison members of your party that don't perform as advertised.  It instils enough fear to prevent the need to do so very often.

      have shown us how to me a highly disciplined minority party.  I'll take the majority, thanks

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
