Ryan urged colleagues in a letter Tuesday to vote for Rep. Tom Price (GA) a favorite of the party's right wing to become the next House Republican Conference Chairman. In the election held yesterday, Speaker John Boehner's preference, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA), defeated Price. It looks like Boehner may regain the control he lost to Cantor and Ryan.
As a poster on the Red State Blog said, "Republicans eat their own"- the Democrats don't do that."

Maybe the Democrats should do that. I prefer leaders to dictators. Government works best when everyone thinks for themselves.

Yes, it was a surprising and stinging defeat for Paul Ryan ... from the viewpoint of the 'tin-foil hat' caucus in the Congress.
