Curse these Tea Party congressmen! They can’t be bought!
I had to post this because it is a much needed laugh with the conclusion of this political fight.

W Andrea, you’ve seen ‘em come and seen ‘em go. This has hardly been a profile in courage. Have you ever seen anything like this?M … Now its stalemate, its gridlock. And I’ve never seen anything where there has been so little leadership and where people are angry, disgusted and, I think, really rebellious out there. People are wanting change and they don’t know how to get it.
W And a new dynamic, Andrea, in Washington – at least in the time you and I have been watching things. Some members have come to town and they don’t care if they get re-elected. That is a whole new dynamic. They are here for a single issue and are willing to go down in flames at the polls if they achieve it or don’t.
M There has always been anger and animus in among leaders and among the followers – the rank and file, the caucus. But these new members really are willing to tear the place down. And they not only don’t care whether or not are re-elected – they don’t want pork (laughs). There are no inducements to get them to follow the speaker or the other leaders. So they don’t want the traditional methods of buying loyalty here and that was a reform that now has changed the dynamic.
W Alright, Andrea Mitchell from our Washington newsroom. Wish there was better news to report to folks especially about our era in Govt.
Oh this is rich. The MSM is moaning about how Tea Party congressmen are willing to die on a hill for their convictions. “Getting re-elected? Pffffft. My country matters more to me than getting re-elected.”
Wear this badge of honor well you freshmen congressmen. To the 22 whom didn’t buckle, if we’re ever able to get this country turned around, you are each a political Nathan Hale.
MSM journalists complaining of politicians that cannot be bought and take a subtle shot at their Dear Leader. What a great night.
