The Revenge of the Empire

Interesting little side-note in the Boehner Revenge story.

...The House Republican leadership is carefully reviewing the list of members who voted against the speaker and those who opposed a procedural motion in December on the so-called “crominibus,” the $1.1 trillion spending package to keep the government open through to September....

Cromnibus passed because a number of Republicans voted for "the Rule" which brought it to the floor.  The bill itself was so bad that Boehner had to get Democrats to vote for it.  The bill fully funds almost every Obozo program and department.  It stinks.

Republicans who bill themselves as "conservatives" then voted AGAINST Cromnibus.  It's the John F'n Kerry Gambit, but in this case they were for it before they were against it. Jim Sensenbrenner, who is long past his stale-date, is one of those people.

To them, the First Thing is to preserve themselves and The Empire.  The rest of us can take the hindmost.
