The Skin of Boehner's Teeth

Looks like Boehner gets to keep his job a little while longer.

He's been wheeling and dealing with Obama for so long and failing to act as any real opposition, that too many of the other Republicans got fed up and they called for his ouster.

I don't fully understand how the voting goes, but on a straight up numbers count, the House almost got Nancy Pelosi in charge. I guess the Republicans were fed up enough with Boehner to call the vote to scare him into acting like an opposition party ought to. Kind of a risky approach though if they almost got Pelosi. I don't know if they thought she might cooperate with Obama LESS.

Funny stuff.

You could probably count the honest folks in Congress on your fingers. Well MAYBE a couple toes would be needed.
