The Same Old, Same Old

Someone said something like "The more things change, the more they stay the same".
Well, GOP leadership in the U.S. House lost Eric Cantor because the Republicans acting like Democrats.
So, what does the GOP leadership in the House do?  Elect another RINO to replace Cantor.
From Fox News: In a GOP leadership shuffle, Republican lawmakers voted Thursday for California Rep. Kevin McCarthy to succeed Rep. Eric Cantor as House majority leader after Cantor's unexpected primary defeat last week. 
McCarthy, a fourth-term lawmaker who had held the No. 3 GOP position, was elected by secret ballot....
The day's second election, to succeed McCarthy as party whip, was a much tighter three-way competition among Reps. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, Peter Roskam of Illinois and Marlin Stutzman of Indiana. Scalise, 48, scored the victory.
Scalise, who won his seat in a special election in 2008, campaigned as head of the Republican Study Conference, a group of that sometimes serves as a conservative thorn in the side of leadership.
Well, at least a conservative is the GOP Whip.... Whoopee.
