House Speaker John Boehner is getting attacked as a cruddy leader for his inability to get his Republican Tea Partier members to agree to a tax cut (you heard that right). But according to Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey (who once dared to criticize Rush Limbaugh, only to crawl back and grovel for forgiveness) John Boehner needs to channel a Mel Gibson character and reject the tax cuts.

“This is a ‘Braveheart’ moment. You, Mr. Speaker, are our William Wallace,” Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.), a member of the Tea Party Caucus, said on the Fox News Channel.

That quote begs the question: has Phil Gingrey ever seen Braveheart? As #edshow fan @paidsubscriber tweeted us:

@Paidsubscriber In Braveheart, the elite rich lords sucked the life out of the common people raping & pillaging to build their wealth. Just like GOP does

That said, a few years removed from his career ending rants, Congress probably doesn’t mind cozying up to Mel Gibson. What with their approval rating in the tank.
