Here’s a fun story from Politico — it seems John Boehner wants to fire two of the top staffers at the NRCC, but NRCC Chair Tom Cole (R-OK) says he’ll resign before firing the dudes. This in the context of poor NRCC fundraising, and poor candidate recruitment. Given the generally adverse political climate, if you ask me it’s very important to Boehner’s future that he not get his way on this issue. That’ll set up Cole and his key guys as useful scapegoats in case the Democrats make big gains.
