    The House is in the grip of extremists

    Is there a clear precedent for this situation? And what was the result?

    It was the Democrats who swore to "fundamentally change the United States of America."

    But those who oppose that are the "extremists"?

    I'm wondering how "do nothing" qualifies as extremism?

    Extrememists can still be extreme without "doing" anything. Their positions and views on issues is what defines whether they're extreme or not. I'm not passing judgement on whether the Congress is extreme or not, just defining the term.

    I'm thinking of the charade being played around a contempt vote against Holder.

    The House Republicans are bomb-throwing radicals.

    Isn't Issa similar to McCarthy in his willingness to corrupt his legislative powers for political gain?
