And it rhymes good like a limerick should.

The Dishonorable Speaker is not weeping in the second photo–he got smoke in his eyes.

What pisses me off is the Bastard is such a hypocrite…. if any of us were smoking any where near a Government structure, or almost any where else, we would be getting harassed, maybe tasered and possibly arrested for doing it.

Unlike English (“When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking,”) German names (and I believe it is German) seem to have the second vowel used for the pronunciation. See also, Weinstein, Boeheim.

In the past couple of weeks I have heard it as:
Bow-ner
Burn-er
Bay-ner
Bor-ner

And some contortion my boss came up with that sounds like he’s hacking up a furball.

It’s all in the name.

But Boehner once remarked: “The idea that carbon dioxide is a carcinogen that is harmful to our environment is almost comical. Every time we exhale, we exhale carbon dioxide. Every cow in the world, you know when they do what they do you’ve got more carbon dioxide.”

What an idiot. What a great leader, to demonstrate so many scientific inaccuracies by citing cow crap. If he were a clock that didn’t run, he would still manage not to be correct twice a day. And the word is “defecate.”

I live in the 9th District (Marcy Kaptur (D)).
