Its been inspiring to watch Senator Ted Cruz and REAL patriots talk on the Senate floor all night long.
Pushing into the 20th hour and still going strong, there appears to be clear differences where our state GOP is as compared to the party leadership nationally. About 19 hours ago Reince Priebus Chair of the national GOP tweets:
From our own party leadership? Crickets.

Well, at least turns cantaloupe into food for hungry DC residents.
The result of a protest against GOP positions on immigration reform demonstrated that our representative and his colleagues DO have a heart. Bentivolio delivered the goods:
"With the Republican Study Committee assisting, the office of Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., took the lead in gathering dozens of the cantaloupes so they could be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank.In other news, house democrats still wonder what to do with the pig excrement (Obamacare) delivered specially to them by Obama in 2010.

For Dennis Lennox. And maybe some things you could really care less about.
As Lennox goes on a personal campaign to destroy Decorated Veteran Dave Agema, the credibility he carries with some folks needs to be put back in check. A little background on this guy is in order.
First off, Lennox is no dummy. He is a little queer, (Odd, but I reserve that the matching definition could be that of the reader's own thoughts) but he knows the political game better than most children his age. In fact, a little better than many who have been in the Republican party for some time, as he plays THEM so well. He is a CMU grad or some such thing, and was vice president at one time of the Young Americans for freedom, a group that was once sanctioned (and relieved by the administration)for anti-homosexual chalkings prior to a veterans support event. It was rumored the chalkings were an attempt to drum up 'news' by SOMEONE in that YAF chapter. It made national news, and attention was given. A lot of attention.
Almost as much as the fabled attacks by university officials while doing the Gary Peters video taping thing, at one point earning him a label of "mentally unstable and a potential "campus shooter" because of his aggressive, in your face tactics". Which was false, and drew the ACLU to his side, yet was likely a label he sought. It also made national media.
Lennox went to the 2008 RNC event in MN as an alternate delegate. I was there as well. On the way in during one session he happened to be walking up the same route on the outside of the security fences. Along that route, was every national leftist blogger in the US. He made it a point to stop and announce himself to quite a few of of them. to make sure THEY know who he was and gave them 'official' interviews as a Republican going in.
At that time of course, he had other things going on as well that would add to his 'national persona'.
