I used to think Orange Boner was just so weak a leader that he couldn't throw a beer party in a brewery if someone else brought the nachos.
Today I'm more inclined to think of him as a character in a WWI movie. Picture him as Sub-Leftenant Pugsley-Codswallop waving his Webley revolver, on a lanyard of course, over his head and exhorting the grizzled veterans of Her Majesty's Involuntary Rifles to "Over the top, lads! Follow me!". The men, played by Reps. Cantor and McCarthy, simply wait until his machine-gun-bullet-riddled corpse falls back in the trench and continue with their bully beef and tea and hope he doesn't have so much lead in him that he'll be too heavy to carry off before he starts to stink.
It's a heartwarming visual, isn't it?
The humiliation of John BoehnerBetter than being carried. Heh.
He's powerless, and his own party continues to make him look like a fool. Maybe he'll just walk away
