It’s not a purge, says Boehner

The wailing and gnashing of teeth from the depths of the Republican base that strangely orange-hued Speaker of the House John Boehner was purging Teabaggers from committees reached deafening proportions (i.e. Michelle Malkin-levels) might now take a breath before wailing again.

It wasn’t about ideology, it was about discipline:

“The Committee’s decision had nothing to do with ideology. For those suggesting otherwise, I’d respectfully suggest that you look at some of the people the Steering Committee put in charge of committees. I’d also suggest you look at some of the members who were added to the committees by the Steering Committee. If you do that and come away with the conclusion that there was a ‘conservative purge,’ I’d be interested hearing the rationale.”

It seems that some of the people removed from the committees were considered notorious leakers (for instance the tale of the epic drunken-skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee that might have sunk the congressional career of none-too-bright Ben Quayle), or uncontrollable to march in lemming-like lock-step over the so-called Fiscal Cliff.
