If your Orange Boehner lasts more than 6 terms...






Reform, eh? John Boehner was elected to Congress in 1990, and helped draft the Contract Against America, with its term limit pledge, in 1994. So much for that. I see the Columbus Not Fit For Fishwrap neglected to mention that John Boehner handed out checks from the tobacco lobby to fellow GOOPers on the House floor in June, 1995.

It's not surprising that The Columbus Dispatch would fail to mention this, as they're Republicans who inherited the paper from daddy. I do find it amusing that their source for Boehner's reform credentials is a Republican lobbyist who insisted on anonymity.

As for following the sentence "He doesn't want to get caught up in all the hoopla ... and the trappings of power" with "Boehner, who set his sights on becoming speaker as far back as 1991 when he was a freshman House member...", not even M.C Hammer could touch this.


P.S. Via tildology:
