As soon as Rep. John Boehner was elected Majority Leader by his Republican colleagues in the House, CNN issued the following news release. Read it for yourself, and tell me if it sounds like the Democrats wrote it for them:
Boehner elected House majority leader
GOP representatives choose Ohio lawmaker to succeed DeLay
(CNN) -- House Republicans on Thursday elected U.S. Rep. John Boehner of Ohio as majority leader.
He upset Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri in a 122-109 vote on the second ballot. Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona dropped out of the running after the first ballot.
Party rules forced Rep. Tom DeLay of Texas to step down as majority leader in December after he was indicted on money laundering and conspiracy charges in his home state.
