John Boehner Unchained

quote [ The former House speaker feels liberated, but he's also seething about what happened to his party. ]

A sympathetic look at a horrible man.

I think the lawn mower is clogged. I'm gonna reach under, while you pull the cord.

It's a mystery how this bad shit just happened while Boner was in various levels of leadership.

Thoroughly good read. Good writing of that caliber is harder and harder to come by these days.

Beohner ... is far from horrible. A technocrat and a deal-maker, he had what amounted to an impossible job. Personally I blame Gingrich for most of the mess. Boehner's contribution to the downward spiral was largely a well-intentioned mistake: getting rid of earmarks. Maybe a more skillful leader could have broken the tea party on the rocks of its own ambition and brought everyone into line, but I doubt it.
