Slate has a little piece about Huelskamp’s evident role in engineering / coordinating the opposition to John Boehner as Speaker of the House:
I find this deeply alarming. While Huelskamp’s actions will likely not hurt his re-election chances, given the voter breakdown of the 1st District, they threaten real consequences for his constituents here in Manhattan. Fort Riley, Kansas State University, and NBAF all need sympathetic ears in Washington, DC. Huelskamp has managed to alienate the leadership of his own party, and will certainly be getting no sympathy from the White House.
Huelskamp’s actions strike me as ideology trumping all considerations of actually doing good for the people he represents.
