Boehner to Resign
Via the NYT: Boehner Will Resign From Congress.
My initial response at seeing the headline was to double-check and see if it was from a satire site. So, on the one hand I am truly surprised. On the other, however, I do find the degree to which this is emblematic of the divisions in the Republican Party (divisions that have plagued Boehner’s Speakership) to be very interesting.
Regardless of the party dynamic aspect, that he is reportedly going to reign from Congress by the end of next month is actually pretty stunning.
More later, I suspect.
