Can’t get over the mental image of House Republicans consoling a weeping John Boehner in the cloakroom after 9 colleagues dissed him by voting against his re-election as Speaker. Can’t prove it happened, but you know it did.
Here’s what’s left for the day:
* RCP’s Erin McPike has a useful thumbnail sketch of the Senate’s freshman class (including, for Democrats, committee assignments).
* Hollywood is apparently abuzz about a script for a movie about HRC.
* Andrew Sullivan reports raising a third of a million dollars from 12,000 subscribers within 24 hours of announcing the new model for The Dish; his former home, The Atlantic, said to be planning pay-for-content model this year.
* Politico reports Geithner to step down in January.
* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein has a lot of “fun facts” about the Members of the 113d Congress.
And in non-political news:
* Actor playing sinister deputy director of CIA on Homeland says Nicholas Brody really does deserve to die. Method actor?
Since I began the day with a Beatles video, here’s Los Lobos covering “Tomorrow Never Knows” after an interview discussion of the Fab Four. Great performance of the tune that flummoxed Don Draper.
