New Speaker, Old Mentality

"I voted in the 2010 mid-term elections, and all I got was this lousy Boehner."  I want this on a t-shirt.  Someone please mass produce. I will pay you $25.

It's true.  Nancy Pelosi will be out and it's reported that John Boehner (should be pronounced "boner"), will be knighted as the new Speaker of the House.  No surprise that the republican from Ohio "fought bitterly" against the cap-and-trade bill that was passed by the House last year. 
"The idea that carbon dioxide is a carcinogen that is harmful to our environment is almost comical," Mr. Boehner told ABC News in an April 2009 interview. "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."
No, Mr. Boehner.  That's not comical.  What's comical is that you think CO2 emissions and a cap-and-trade regulatory scheme have to do with cancer.  That, along with the pronunciation of your last name.

He's been lobbying pretty hard for someone to believe that it's properly pronounced "Bay-ner".
