I love the smell of rethug desperation in the morning

It smells like... victory. "Clearly frustrated" House minority leader tells fellow losers to 'get off their dead asses':

John Boehner (R-OhNo!) challenged Republicans on Tuesday to get off their “dead asses” and start raising money for the National Republican Congressional Committee. And he wasn’t the only lawmaker berating his GOP colleagues to raise more money -- NRCC Chairman Tom Cole and Minority Whip Roy Blunt also used a closed-door session on Tuesday to challenge Republicans to raise more campaign cash. The normally upbeat Cole told Republicans that if they don’t start raising more money for the committee, they should get used to life in the minority.

The NRCC was starting to turn things around at the end of 2007. But 2008 began with a fresh crop of retirements and revelations that a former NRCC bookkeeper allegedly forged an internal audit sent to the committee’s principal lender.

Ahhhh, those rethug moral values of honor, integrity, forgery... I'm getting all choked up.
