Boehner Continues Bathroom Rhetoric With Potty Mouth

This past Friday, after the passage of the American Clean Energy and Security Act, House Minority Leader John Boehner (OH) was not a happy camper. But really, who could blame him? ACES had passed, his Friday night was ruined (in his defense, America's Funniest Home Videos was on), and his attempts to delay the vote by speaking on the House floor for over an hour proved to be useless. Upset or not, I don't think anyone was expecting this reaction (via The Hill):
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.
