    I haven't followed the contest closely enough to comment, but usually the ones gunning for leadership are little girly boys who polish apples. They're into headcounting and personal connections, not policy change. They appeal to FELLOW POLITICIANS, instead of voters. If that's not a recipe for a slimecake, I don't know what is. In fact, it's often the LEAST ideological ones who get ahead. Look at Bob Michel, the weakest Republican who ever lived. This guy didn't give two shits about conservatism. He was a Beltway creature, pure and simple.

    Gingrich, though I don't like him much, was an exception. He rose to a leadership position AND he had a vision of where conservatism, the GOP, and America should go.

    Blogger says Shadegg is good on pork, which is nice... but peripheral, I think. How about the Big Stuff, like the transformation of America from a First-World NATION into a Third-World cesspool through open immigration?

    Can't vouch for this source, but...

    Shadegg, Shadegg, Shadegg!!!

    I like his stance on gov't spending. Frankly, his election as majority leader will almost guarantee a slowdown on gov't spending - an issue on which the GOP has totally gone spineless on, to their shame.

    Mr Boehner sounds interesting though I don't know much about him either.

    If that is what he truly intends to stand for once in power then he sounds like a good candidate.
