Renee Ellmers paints herself into a corner

The vile liar Renee Ellmers has been on a rampage against Obamacare. She's one of the ones who voted against it 42 times, and she's been speaking on the House floor, going on TV, tweeting, facebooking and everything else she can to try to get people to believe that Obamacare is the apocalypse. Nearly everything she says is a pack of lies, but we've come to expect that from Lying Renee.

But the law of unintended consequences has just roosted on Renee's doorstep. Apparently somebody (Ted Cruz?) marshalled a bunch of the really, really crazy right-wing nut jobs (you know, the ones who want to primary anyone who had the nerve to re-open the federal government), and some of them are piling on Renee.

It seems that they've called Renee's bluff, and advised her that she is now expected to repeal Obamacare or else they'll find someone who will.

At its core, the idea that Ellmers isn't conservative enough and isn't loyal enough to the Tea Party, and that there actually are a non-trivial number of people who believe that, is a scary idea indeed.

But in the short term, please forgive me and bring me some popcorn, because this is going to be REALLY, REALLY FUN TO WATCH!


I hope

I hope they find someone with Teatard credentials to make Renee look like a communist.

Double down boys and girls, hell, triple down. Drive that bus like you stole it (because you did), straight over the highest cliff you can find.

I completely agree

So long as I can have popcorn while I watch.

And maybe a nice glass of Merlot (but I'll take cabernet if that's all you have).

No matter what the reason that anyone voted for Renee Ellmers, they should be ashamed. No, seriously.
