As always, a terrific roundup. Thank you for including my post today, Doug, it's a huge honor for me.

I used to love Ms. Bachmann, now I see her stuck on fashion - referencing the link to her.

This last round was a huge victory for Conservatives - Boehner did very well.

The Constitution is clear. I remember the Gipper making compromises to win the Cold War when Democrats controlled the House and Senate. We have control over the House, the Democrats control the Senate and Executive.

The fashionable nonsense is so weary. Some are foolishly screaming for Boehner to step down. They are lost - not practicing sound conservatism, but stuck on an emotive denial.

Democrats took another huge hit last evening. Slowly we turn the fiasco back to reality.

PS: Case in point, this 'Judson Philips' character is the kind of nonsensical emotive folly, which is entirely NOT conservative.

Doesn't even know the deal, and cries "selling us out". What nonsense. Same foolish sophistry which undermined this Nation's best interests after 2004 and pushed for the disaster of Delaware. There are some who simply are counter productive. Not ready for reality.

"There were only a few wayward critics in the wee hours of Saturday morning — Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) criticized the deal, as well as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who chairs the conservative Republican Study Committee. One tea party leader, Judson Phillips, the founder of Tea Party Nation, tweeted Friday that Boehner is “selling us out” and he threatened to put up a primary candidate against Boehner."
