Boehner Decides to Be Rational on Debt Limit, So Tea Party Calls for His Head

GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner decides he can't win without a "clean" bill to raise the debt limit (it's gone so well the last two times!), so he announces a vote for Tuesday night without conditions. He knows he'll need Democratic votes to pass it, so he'll bring a clean bill to the floor for a vote.

The immediate reaction from the Tea Party is to call for him to be ousted. Wow.

Read TPM's report:
The powerful outside group's call came in an email to supporters on Tuesday, shortly after House Republicans announced that they would give up on previous demands for a debt ceiling extension and instead support a clean hike.
I'd say RIP John Boehner, but that's not a given. Ed Gilgore will say RIP Republican Party. Well, maybe not quite, but almost.

Tea Party: Off with those Republican heads!! Wait...
