GOP In Disarray, Won’t Follow McCain

Election '08

No matter what you want to say about the bailout, the Democratic leadership managed to actually lead.  The Republicans agreed to a bill and then couldn't deliver the votes they promised.  Now every Republican congressman you've never heard of is engaging in triumphalism before the cameras, claiming success in bringing the bill down.

This morning John Shadegg (R-AZ) was just on Morning Joe saying Boehner's excuse for the bill not passing -- GOP House members having their tender feelings hurt by Nancy Pelosi's speech -- was a crock of shit. He said he couldn't name one member of the House who pulled their vote because of it.  That lack of total discipline never would've been imaginable in the GOP just a short while ago.
