On FaceBook on Tuesday I wrote this: "I can't believe it - I just found out Speaker John Boehner is still backing Rep Scalise as the GOP Whip, even after it has been revealed Scalise attended a David Duke organized rally in 2002. Even if it is true, Scalise didn't know anything about the organization who was sponsoring the rally and he just spoke there not supporting anyone, then that makes him too stupid to be the Whip.
There are no excuses.
It's unbelievable, Boehner, who has no trouble criticizing [and some times even mocking] the more conservative "tea party" members of his caucus when they stand on principle, is supporting his leadership team at any cost.
