Boehner and Blunt Oppo!
Now that Hot Tub Tom DeLay has been made to face reality, it's time to bone up on oppo for his two likeliest replacements, Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) and John Boehner (R-Ohio)! TAP has a nice Boehner oppo starter pack for you. (Remember, this guy is a Gingrich protégé, and the GOP wants to paint him as "clean"?! If you want a refresher on the tip of the Sleaze Iceberg that is Newt Gingrich, just go here.) And here's some stuff on Roy Blunt, here and here. (Hint: He really, really, really LOVES Big Tobacco. Literally.)
Shakedowns are nothing new to Washington. The Republicans have merely taken what was called "constituent service" to new depths, orders of magnitude below what an operator like LBJ would have engaged in.
My guess is they'll go with Boehner.
