The House Leadership Race Continues to Play Itself Out on The Corner?

A Boehner supporter e-mails:

I noticed you posted the WSJ editorial this morning, and I also noticed Rep. Flake had an op-ed in the WSJ which describes the bill that repealed the 1996 Freedom to Farm Bill as “the best example of where we’ve gone wrong.”  I would point out that Boehner was one of the few House Republicans who fought against this bill to repeal Freedom to Farm, and was one of the few Republicans to vote against the terrible 2002 Farm Bill that did so.  No other candidate or potential candidate for House Republican leader can say that.
