From The Caucus at The New York Times:
The soon-to-be House speaker, John A. Boehner, said that he took a breath before he chose to describe the Democrats’ decision to vote to extend tax cuts for all but wealthy Americans. And the phrasing he came up with? “Chicken crap.”
Ummmm, Boohoo, with your complexion, shouldn’t that be roasted chicken crap?
When asked if Democrats were working in good faith by voting on a tax plan that Senate Republicans were certain to reject at a time when White House and Congressional officials were trying to hammer out a behind-the-scenes-deal, Mr. Boehner said: “This maneuver going on today as — as chicken crap, all right? But this is nonsense! All right? The election was one month ago. We’re 23 months from the next election, and the political games have already started.”
And when asked how he might respond to President Obama’s debt-reduction plan, should the bipartisan proposal obtain the necessary 14 votes for a Congressional vote, Mr. Boehner responded, somewhat inexplicably, “If ands-and-buts were candy-and-nuts, every day would be Christmas.”
Did he say Christmas? That reminds me of another tax Boohoo Bronzo the Clown was boohooing about almost a year ago…
To the tune of O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree):
