Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday. When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, "Hey, people deserve to know what's in this pile of s--t.We'd try and be snarky about it, but it seems an aide did that for us:
Pelosi's office declined to comment on Boehner's jab. But one Democratic aide quipped, "What do you expect from a guy who thinks global warming is caused by cow manure?"Given his ability to talk about a 'pile of s--t' for well over an hour, we recommend that anyone with somewhere to be in the near future be wary of entering into a conversation with Mr. Boehner about something that actually interests him; he may end up talking forever.
