Who knows how much truth there is to any of this, but I'm rather enjoying watching House Speaker get thrown under the bus by his own: Laura Ingraham: ‘Well-placed conservative voice’ says Paul Ryan in line to replace Boehner:

On Friday night’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” fill-in host Laura Ingraham said her sources indicate a coup may already be underway in Congress.

“I had a well-placed conservative voice today on the Hill email me and said he’s beginning to hear rumblings — I already gave something away, ‘he’ — he’s beginning to hear of a move to replace the speaker of the House,” Ingraham said. “We’re in the middle of this tussle with the Democrats, more than a tussle, and is that the right time to put that out there? And people are floating the name of Paul Ryan to be House speaker. But Ryan did support … Plan B.”

And for anyone who wasn't fully aware of just how big of a debacle Boehner's attempt to get his "Plan B" passed was, Robert Costa over at The National Revue filled their readers in on all of the ugly details this week here: Inside the Meltdown.
