WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker John Boehner today called for an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, thus ending a streak of pretending to work with President Obama that lasted forty-eight hours.

“We knew he couldn’t hold out much longer,” said Carol Foyler of Guinness World Records.

“Still, John Boehner pretending to be bipartisan for forty-eight hours is pretty darn impressive,” she said, noting that his previous record stood at twenty minutes. “This is David Blaine territory for him.”

Speaking to reporters, Mr. Boehner downplayed the significance of his record-setting performance, saying merely, “It just feels good being a dick again.”

I bet a lot of tears fell into his beers on election night! He'll certainly have his hands full with the tea party, but I can't say I feel sorry for him.

Boehner is a weak-willed wimp who truly does want to work with the President to get something--anything--done but hasn't got the guts or character to stand up to the Super Conservatives over whom he is supposed to be in charge. His idea of leadership is to do whatever the vocal minority tells him to do. He's pathetic.

Noted...thanks, this had me LOL. Seems like "Mr. Tangerine Man" will be up for a new vote to retain his Speaker of the House role. We should all send him a box of tissues.
