GOP Eats "Crap Sandwich"

Hill writer Jackie Kucinich (no relation?) is reporting that House Republican leaders expressed support for the rescue package in a "closed door meeting" of the Republican conference this afternoon. Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) is said to have referred to the bill as a "crap sandwich" though begrudgingly admitted it was one he'd have to swallow in the interest of, wait for it, Main Street. Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Budget Committee ranking member Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), and, most surprisingly, Chief Deputy Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who has most vocally expressed his "I don't know, I'm nervous about this, I think we're moving too fast" position in the last 24 hours, all "came out strongly" for the revised bill, as well.
Update: Actually, there is a relation between Jackie and Dennis. She is his daughter.
