Boehner’s latest lie: “We accept moderates in our party”

This doesn’t pass the straight-face test:

“Clearly [Scozzofava] would be on the left side of our party,” said Boehner, who had financially supported the campaign of the New York assemblywoman. “…We accept moderates in our party and we want moderates in our party.”

Who is “we”? It’s certainly not the base of the GOP. The teabaggers don’t accept or want anyone who doesn’t adhere strictly to their hard-core, extreme right-wing philosophy. As I wrote yesterday:

There is no room for different ideas in the modern day GOP. The teabaggers rule their world.
