Yeah, we’re pointing and laughing at you.
This happened on Wednesday:
Speaker John Boehner is officially neutral but privately supporting McMorris Rodgers. Paul Ryan, the returning chairman of the Budget Committee whose profile rose enormously during his vice presidential run, is asking colleagues to back Price.
Maybe Ryan is not so much the presumed leader of the GOP and the great 2016 hope for the party. Or maybe he still just has the stench of 2012 on him. Either way, Ryan loses again, and Boehner still has a split in his caucus to deal with. All in all, a pretty good day.
And he’ll always be the guy who sought (and failed) to take Medicare apart. Four years from now people in their early 50’s who would have been most affected will be in their late 50’s and quite grateful about Romney/Ryan’s defeat.
And he’ll always be the guy who said that rape was a just an alternative means of conception.
Congressman is as far as this loser gets, and hopefully we’ll be able to get his seat next time around.
