    to the center?  They don't care if intransigence hurts the country.  If this roadblock stuff works, they'll double down and do it even harder.  
    They really do believe it doesn't matter who's prez..any idiot will do.  And that's because they have no intention whatsoever of "governing".
    "Governing" is for socialist wimps.  Making more money and more money is for Serious Leaders.

      Will have to know that their seats were held by Dems, meaning their district is pretty moderate/centrist.  If they want to keep their jobs in 2012 - a Presidential election year, they'll have to not scare votes back to the Dems with their far fight voting and unwillingness to vote against party.  

      Imagine Pelosi having to have the gavel over to Boehner, and the shit eating grin he'll have as the GOP caucus erupts into raucous applause.

        The types slated to make up that shift and plenty in the House right now are true believer ideologues. They also know that their base is the same and an absolutely, positive sure way to be kicked out in 2012 is to betray that screaming mob with "moderation" of any sort.

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