  •  Except that it was Peter King who was getting fckd (6+ / 0-)

    he now holds a Democratic friendly district and if he can't deliver he won't hold it.

    That is what was shocking to him... and hence his comments about his party becoming a permanent minority. If they don't take measures to keep people like him holding their seats then they are toast.

    And Boehner knows it which is why (part of why) he has immediately promised to take care of King with Sandy relief. The other half is that Boehner is close to getting fucked himself and needs the 6 votes of the NY House delegation and needs the 6 votes of the NJ House delegation if he is to remain as Speaker.

    Republicans don't mind fucking people... just not themselves.
