The New Weeper of the House

Incoming Speaker of the House John Boehner has a demonstrated habit of crying while on camera. He even cry’s while in the House chambers during debates. Really? How did this guy get elected? How can you make important decision that affect millions of people if you can’t even control your own emotional responses? I would cry too if I took this stuff too seriously but I’m saved by an appreciation of the absurd and a good sense of humor.

John Boehner, new Speaker of the House
We’ve learned is more likely to douse
The chamber with tears
So I’ll add to the jeers,
John Boehner, new Weeper of the House.

(thanks to Joy Behar for that punchline)
