John Boehner, the happy garbage man

The Weeping Orange recently related to a Politico reporter what it's like doing the people's work in Washington: “Garbage men get used to the smell of bad garbage."

The thing is, John, that trash haulers actually perform a public service by removing stuff that is an eyesore and a stench in the nostrils of the people. You, on the other hand, seem to have just settled into the refuse, where you wallow contentedly like a hog in his beloved mud.

Boehner also had this to say: "I came to Washington to fight for a smaller, less costly and more accountable government.” Well, that looks like three strikes right there, buddy. Why are you still standing at the plate?

And there's this:
Some conservatives have complained that he doles out punishment to conservatives who cross him; Boehner said that’s not his style.

“I don’t believe in rewarding bad behavior,” he said. “That’s a much better way of saying it.”
Bad behavior? You mean like trying to accomplish what the voters sent them to Washington to do?

Weak, stupid and petty. Exactly the kind of leadership that is leading to the destruction of the Republican Party.

Not only the destruction of the Republican Party, but the destruction of the Republic.

John Boehner is yet another corrupt politician who lives completely unaware of the kind of person he really is.

"I don't believe in rewarding bad behavior."

But he doesn't mind being rewarded.
