Rep. John Boehner was crying again.


Avid crier, John Boehner, was at it again: sobbing when the statue-- or, in his case, idol-- of Ronald Reagan was unveiled in Statuary Hall this morning. Or maybe his mind was just wandering towards what today's Politico termed the stealth war to keep moving the GOP along the road to oblivion as a serious national party.

It's not so much that the wing-nuts will miss John McHugh (R-NY) or even the likelihood of being embarrassed again when they lose a seat-- after a costly battle they can't afford-- with a tremendous GOP registration advantage (120,887 Democrats to 167,272 Republicans). Obama won the district 52-47% last November.

I did an interview with the great Will Bunch on his new book: "Tear Down This Myth: How the Reagan Legacy Has Distorted Our Politics and Haunts Our Future," and I'll be posting the video shortly.
