Mr. Carpenter,

You hit the proverbial nail squarely on the head when you referred to Cantor as a nitwit. Of all the idiotic republics, Cantor is the poster boy for the party's abject stupidity.

I hope he keeps it up.


Boehner, Cantor, and all members of the republican caucus know what is at stake regarding the budget. Boehner and Cantor have the tea party caucus that do not believe that ANY compromise is acceptable. He's now looking to the Blue Dogs for help, according to Steve Benen:

"But that's not the case. Boehner is a weak Speaker, leading a caucus that doesn't necessarily trust him, dominated by freshman who don't really know him and owe no allegiance to him. The Speaker could work something out with the Senate and White House, explain to House Republicans it's the best deal possible under the circumstances, only to hear from his own members, "No, you're wrong, this isn't good enough."

This is quite an untenable position "the weeper" finds himself in. I don't think this is what he thought he'd get by pandering to the tea partiers for the past 2 years.
