I hate to quote the Who... because I hate the Who..
But meet the new boss... same as the old boss.
Ok this is not how I wanted to start off my day. Not only am I quoting The Who... I'm linking to Slate. I feel dirty. Never the less the article in question is not inaccurate completely. The premise is sound.
If Boenher had done what Paul Ryan just did... the GOP would be out to hang him.
unlike Slate... I suspect the GOP base is already out to hang Ryan. This is why the establishment GOP guys are all in the shitter in the polls people. This is why Trump is winning. The base hates the GOP establishment and the establishment hates its own base.
This cannot last.
The GOP will leadership will either be purged and replaced with people in-line with the base... or the base will leave, and form a new party, and the GOP will simply disappear.
And as an unreconstructed confederate... let me say... good riddance.
