Peter King: ‘The Crazies Have Taken Over the Party’
The GOP civil war is over, and we lost. We being indys’, Dems, Greens, all but the Tea party base and its hand puppet congress.

House Speaker John Boehner’s sudden resignation Friday “signals that the crazies have taken over the party,” New York Republican Peter King said Friday.
“I think it signals the crazies have taken over the party, taken over to the party that you can remove a speaker of the House who’s second in line to be president, a constitutional officer in the middle of his term with no allegations of impropriety, a person who’s honest and doing his job. This has never happened before in our country,” King said in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on Friday afternoon. “He could have stayed on.”
