For John, BLUF: . Nothing to see here; just move along.
The Hastert Rule. This item is so long in the queue that I don't remember where I picked it up.
The real question with regard to the Hastert Rule is what about those who are a minority in the majority. If they are sufficiently excluded, why don't they do go to the real minority? There must be something in it for them that they remain a minority within the majority.
