Time for Hastert to Go [link]

The time has come... to say fair's fair; to pay the rent; to pay our share.

And the time has come for Denny Hastert to go. I do not know anything about his actions behind the scenes. I do not know how effective he has been organizing administrative matters in the House. But he has been a complete non-entity in an important leadership position.

Longtime readers (reader?) know that I believe that the Republican leaders in the House selected Hastert to be Speaker precisely because he lacked authority and power. A weak hand on the levers of control means that everyone has greater freedom to act. But this freedom has become chaos.
