The attractively orange-hued John Boehner was reelected as Speaker of the U.S. House yesterday, though two North Carolina Republicans voted against him -- Mark Meadows of the 11th and Walter Jones of the 3rd congressional districts
Meadows is the Tea Party "architect" of the 2013 government shutdown and is clearly also willing to shut off John Boehner's water. He's twice as "principled" as Virginia Foxx, who is a notorious toady to the power-structure.
Walter Jones is the former Democrat who often enjoys twisting Republican titty, so what did he have to lose? Jones supports raising the minimum wage, so he's already well outside the mainstream of the contemporary Republican Party.
Apparently, Meadows is completely unafraid of getting a dead fish in his mail slot.
