  1. Did not know Boehner was left handed! 🙂

    Seriously, the most important factor for the GOP, regardless if Boehner is Speaker of the House, is their nominee for the President in 2016.

    Hey, I’d love to have a patriot like Louie Gohmert as Speaker; however, if the GOP nominates another substandard establishment candidate (y’all can fill in the blank) for President, a dynamic Speaker will not help the GOP so much.

    It ain’t over by a long shot!
