This is a curated list of articles, seeds, photo/video posts and comments for the past two weeks. The series will combine the use of Newsvine's "thumbs up" as well as the minds of the Newsvine team. As always, meta articles about the proper use of the site will be ignored for this feature.
You missed a busy week. It's time to catch up.
original writing on Newsvine
Vlad's Dog writes "John Boehner's resignation, a GOP wake up call from a leader."
Some think this will radically change the GOP party. I doubt that very much, getting rid of the House Majority leader will not change much in the GOP party. The internal fight goes on with one less sober head in a leadership position. The losers, who have lost every political battle, who have not accomplished anything positive at all, now think they have a better winning strategy by eliminating John Boehner. Slashing and burning internally, cutting off the head of the House majority will not win anything.

Tip of the Week: Use the "ignore" function. Sometimes two 'Viners cannot get along. They're adequate to great with everyone else, but for some reason their relationship with each other is toxic. In this case "ignore" is the ideal solution.
So who's going to make next week's Best Of? What did we miss?
