Boo-Hoo Boehner Gets Tough

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Kleenex) gave his first Sunday squawk-show interview to – surprise! – Fox News Sunday, where he said umpteen times to host Chris Wallace that he would “follow the will of the House,” which loosely translated means “I’m not answering this question.”

But the most interesting part came at the end of the interview, when Wallace posed viewer questions:

1) “Why do you cry so often . . . It makes you look weak – or strange”

(Cryin’ John’s response: “I’m not going to apologize for being emotionally attached to the things I feel most strongly about.”)

2) “We like you – why don’t you stop smoking?”

(Smokin’ John’s response: “Why do we bring this up again? You know, smoking – it’s a bad habit, but I have it. It’s a legal product, I choose to smoke – leave me alone.”)

Good for you, Mr. Smoker of the House.

    It’s natural for a politician to pull a boehner every now and then. At least it’s not the Clinton administration!
