    doesn't have enough members to vote in the Speaker.  That's not saying they won't try, but the Republicans are well aware that putting Tea Party candidates in front of a camera can result in disaster for their party.
    And it won't be Bachmann. Whoever it is has to be able to raise money, and she turns the money boys off with her bomb throwing. She couldn't even get a rich benefactor like Santorum and Newt did for the primaries.

        Mr. "I'm so wonky, I can't tell you the details" in front of a camera 3 times a week or more.
        There are reasons why Ryan fell off the map  in the last weeks of the election. He can't defend his own policies (if that's what you want to call them).
