The Tracks of John Boehner’s Tears

Michael Winship

There are a few certainties in this world: fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, John Boehner’s gotta cry. Remember how a year ago — just a year ago — the former speaker of the House wept when Pope Francis addressed a joint session of Congress? And then only a couple of days later announced he was stepping down as speaker?

Can we start to pronounce his name properly, now?

Really? And this is surprising, why? Boner is a piece of mule dung. I don't know why people are always acting astounded by this crap. Something has to be done and it is incredibly pathetic that it has to be us. Paraphrasing Jerry Garcia, I believe.

Boner?

I am shocked. Absolutely shocked that this even made the news. Route is generally the last thing the news is interested in.

I love this article just for the title.
It reminds me of Linda Ronstadt, wearing that Boy Scout uniform, and other good memories.
I'm probably even going to read it.

How about "Bonehead"?

Works for me.
