Newly-minted dreamboat and House Majority Leader John Boehner is back in The Hill today, anchoring a story about less-experienced Republican House members scurrying to pass some legislation before the election. If you're Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.), say, it's a boost to say you passed a law to "improve communications between emergency first responders" before you head back to a district of Michael Steele-minded voters. But does Boehner get why they're in a rush? He sounds a lot like Kevin Bacon trying to stop the bedlam of everyone in town fleeing Delta House's monstrous float. "ALL IS WELL!"
"Everybody wants their bill up this week," the majority leader said during his weekly off-camera press briefing yesterday. "It is as if we were never coming back."Yeah. As if.
