Burning down the House

Over at The Corner, HQ of the very serious cons, they're somewhat mystified by the Tea Party cons pushing Boehner overboard during their mutiny on Plan B.
One false claim making the rounds about the House Republicans who defeated John Boehner’s “Plan B” last night is that they don’t understand that higher taxes are inevitable. A lot of them understand that point perfectly well. Some of them have been privately advising the Republican leaders to pursue a strategy that they know would lead to higher taxes than Plan B contained.
Establishment GOPers should have thought of that when they empowered these champions of "enlightened self-interest" in 2010.

It's not that complicated. The people who elected them don't do nuanced agreements. There is only one cardinal rule among purity cons. If Democrats are for any part of it, they are against it. Compromise is the dirtiest of all words in their vocabulary. [photo credit]
