John Boehner Speaks!
Or, Out of the Mouths of Fools.
The Great Orange-Skinned One, the Oompa-Loompah from Ohio, the Speaker of the House of Reprehensibles, John "Crying Man" Boehner (R-OH), sat down to have a chat with the Wall Street Journal over the weekend.
Among the many nose nuggets he fished out and flicked at the reporter was little gem, one of several amazing things said while the rest of us were trying to catch up on sleep:
"We got 435 members. It's just a slice of America, it really is. We got some of the smartest people in the country who serve here, and some of the dumbest. We got some of the best people you'd ever meet, and some of the raunchiest. We've got 'em all."
One has to wonder which category Boehner files himself under. Being a fairly typical politician (that is, a flaming narcissist), he will probably lump himself in with the smart people.
And yes, we have to recall that we voted for these 535 idiots (I include the Senate). We voted for them. They didn't pass through an interspatial membrane, nor are they The Lizard People of Whamadoodle IX.
There's a reason P.J. O'Rourke titled his book about the Congress Parliament of Whores.
