Boehner Pills

Buried in the Faux News coverage of the momentous handing of the House Speaker gavel to Nancy (She's female! And her Frisco cohorts are going to turn us all queer!) Pelosi, Republican brain surgeon John Boner Boehner floated this bizarre nugget o' hypocrisy.

On the House side, members did their part to pledge cooperation, but those claims were clouded by Republican charges that Democrats already aren't living up to their campaign promises.

"I think they're getting off to a bit of a rough start," said incoming House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio

"In 1994 when we took control of the House, 12 years ago, it wasn't that — we wanted to treat Democrats the way we had asked to be treated. And, frankly, that's what we did. What we really expect out of the Democrats is for them to treat us as they would like to have been treated," Boehner said.

But he added, "Republicans on Capitol Hill want to work with Democrats to deal with the issues that the American people sent us here to deal with."

Right. Because when Kotex Sensenbrenner took his wittle gavel home when he didn't get his way, it was because the Republicans wanted to "work with Democrats". They did everything humanly possible to reform a corrupt, pork-laden system, which is why so many of them are now behind bars, and the country is running record deficits. Boner Boehner's party has wanted to "work with Democrats" so badly, and for so long, that they had to have private meetings in the Capitol basement, locking their newfound friends out, telling them to eat shit and bark at the moon.

But now, now they want play nice for the American people. Fuck them and the horse they rode in on.
