Birds of a feather.

Consider the guest list for the Iowa Freedom Summit, a gathering of Republican conservatives set for 1/24 in Des Moines: Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Donald Trump, Rick Perry, Dr. Ben Carson, Scott Walker, Carly Fiorina, John Bolton, Newt Gingrich, Mike Lee ... and Bill O'Brien.

Yes, it's our Bill O'Brien, the Man Who Would Be NH Speaker. The man who, despite losing out on a second try at the House gavel, continues to dust off his right-wing cred elsewhere in the nation.

Now, at first glance, it might seem that B O'B is the odd man out on the list of Iowa summiteers. But, considering that every name on that list accompanies an ego that's at least the size of an RV, B O'B's in familiar company.
