News, but not the serious kind
You must be the new town crier?
Blog Guy, like many readers I rely on you for all my political news. So have the Republicans taken over control of the House yet following their victory in November?
Yes, finally, but only after petulant attempts by Democrats to delay the process.
Really? How could the Democrats possibly do that? They lost the election.
By making incoming House Speaker John Boehner too emotional to repeat the oath of office.
During the handover, outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi dimmed the lights and showed selected movie clips from “Forrest Gump,” “Saving Private Ryan” and “Life is Beautiful.”
Naturally, Boehner convulsed into a sobbing heap.
Wow! But what happened when those clips were over?
Then Pelosi unleashed the big guns. Scenes from “Toy Story 3″ and “My Dog Skip.”
Holy crap! Boehner is a weeper, everybody knows that! Did he have anything to fight back with?
Yes. As luck would have it, just before Pelosi got to “Old Yeller,” Boehner noticed through his tears that he seemed to be holding a huge honking croquet mallet….
