I've been wondering for a while what could it take for the remaining semi-sane members of the Republican party to finally come to terms with the misanthropic skull-fuckery with which they have gotten into bed.
Apparently, this is it.
John Boehner refusing to bring hurricane relief to a vote in the house is apparently the final straw that breaks the elephant's back. The Republican leadership being too afraid of the teabag extreme to do the simple, decent thing, yet knowing that they daren't vote no, because they need some relatively sane humans to vote for them, that seems to be the bridge too far for at least some Republicans.
