So I guess the likes of Trey Gowdy and Mia Love are “Rinos” now having not voted against John Boehner, Save Jerseyans?
That’s what you’re going to hear from the far reaches of social media land this afternoon after Speaker John Boehner survived a cosmetic coup vote at today’s opening session of the 114th Congress.

They’ve become what they hate. The irony would be delicious were it not so counter-productive.
