It's one thing for Steny and the President to lay the guilt on Orange Julius and the House Know-Nothings. It's another thing entirely for the Senate Minority Leader to do so. To this point, McConnell has been silent on this. He came down for himself on this one. "You lose, Johnny."
The optics on this are horrible for House Republicans. They will fold like deck chairs at tomorrow's session. I just hope this pisses the Tea Partiers off so much that there's a Leadership fight.
Regarding the Orange Julius reference above:
Julius Caesar - John Boehner
Gaius Cassius - Eric Cantor
Marcus Brutus - Mitch McConnell
"Et tu, Mitch?"
