|Back in the days when Chris Stewart and Beck were buddies.|
Now I'm not the world's greatest fan of Speaker Boehner, but it delights me to see my apocalyptic-novelist Congressman break ranks with the Beckians and support Boehner. It's a bold move to part with the forces of money-grubbing, phony patriotism. Maybe, just maybe, Chris Stewart has learned a little something about how the Congress actually works - politics - the art of the possible for who gets what, when, and how. The process is played, or should be played, under the rules of our Constitution - Supremacy Clause, Fourteenth Amendment, and all.
So, Congressman Stewart keeps in line with his party bosses. Glenn Beck keeps in line with his fear-mongering, anti-Obama, rabble-rousing shtick.
This next election cycle will be interesting if the Republican moderates of Utah can regain control of their party. I'd take a reformed Christ Stewart over someone like tea-party, Cruzite, mike lee, any day of the week.
