nervous-boehner-cartoon.jpgHouse Speaker John Boehner called Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's idea for passing immigration reform "nutso." Maybe Boehner hasn't taken a good look at his own party. Then again, who can blame him?

No doubt Boehner was stinging from his latest humiliating defeat. House GOP leadership had to pull their border crisis bill, after conservative media came out against it and kowtowing to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and the Tea Party failed to win enough votes to pass it.

Reid tweaked Republicans earlier in the week when he suggested that the Senate could pass immigration reform by tacking it on to whatever the House passed on the border crisis. So it had to hurt when Reid rubbed salt in the wound by teasing the GOP for urging the president to act on his own on the border crisis.

Still, if Boehner really wants to see "nutso," he only need look at his own party -- and its base -- for the best of the worst in wingnuttery this week. Details, after the break.
