Oh Boehner. I’m almost starting to feel sorry for you. Almost.
As I’m reading the reports of Boehner’s postponement of the debt ceiling vote (INORITE?! HOOCOODANODE?!), it occurred to me that Pelosi is probably laughing her San Francisco values ass off at Boehner’s utter incompetence.
Remember the transfer of power from Pelosi to Boehner? Remember how she jokingly gave Boehner that oversized gavel as a gag?
He has proven himself unworthy of that gavel.
She should take that gavel back and, instead, give Boehner the world’s tiniest gavel along with a high-powered microscope so he can see it. Clearly, he is absolutely ineffective as Speaker of the House, especially as compared to Pelosi who could squeeze a vote out of a cinderblock when she needed to. The way she corralled votes for HCR when most thought it couldn’t be done was a thing of beauty.
Meanwhile, Boehner couldn’t get his party to vote with him to put a new soda machine in the Capitol Caf.
Boehner haz a sad.
