Hastert Watch


Asked to describe the mood amongst the Hastert team, the aide said they were “frustrated” and “deeply disappointed that so many people are willing to throw Denny to the sharks” — a reference to conservatives who have called for Hastert’s resignation, as well as comments distancing themselves from Hastert made by Reynolds and Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Oh.

“Boehner’s instincts are the same he showed back in ’98,” the aide said, referring to when Boehner pleaded ignorance about an attempted coup of then-Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., and was defeated in his reelection to House leadership, largely as a result.

  1. Again, another indication of what kind of people are in charge in DC. These cretins have no – zero – respect for the things make America great.
    They are all about the acquisition of power and wealth, nothing more. They’ve used the most treasured documents of this country as toilet paper for 6 yrs. Now that they have run out of fresh meat, they’re turning on their own wounded for sustainance. A pack of jackals is not just a metaphor.
    Sounds like CNN should take some pointers from Animal Planet on how to best report the next week’s events.
