The estimable Erick Erickson of the highly influential Red State blog has declared war against the House GOP “Leadership.” (I put “leadership in quotation marks because I have doubts if they deserve to be thought of as leaders.) The problem is that they just placed an ethically challenged member of the GOP caucus, Ken Calvert, in a plum spot on the Appropriations Committee. Erick explains it well. Take a look. I will just add that there were other, far more upstanding and admirable, GOP House members who wanted the seat. I might return to this issue again soon, with lots more to say. For now, though, give Erick’s post a read. His frustration is understandable.
