God help us all. Is there any topic that won’t cause House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to tear up? Could make for a great new game show called: “Make Boehner Cry.” We hear Bob Barker has time on his hands to host it. Contestants would battle it out to elicit tears, likely mentioning ordinary, hardworking Americans with hardscrabble lives. Ugly crying gives a contestant quadruple bonus points and a loud siren goes off. A few tears moves a competitor on to the next round. Onions would be grounds for automatic disqualification.
Politico‘s Jake Sherman has the story about Boehner tearing up over special election winners. In the meantime, we’re donating Johnson’s No More Tears Baby Shampoo to the Speaker just in case it’s comforting.
