News Roundup for 12/13/10

Boehner cries
"Wa-a-a-ah! Mr. Mooney! Wa-a-a-a-a-ah!"

-Headline of the Day-
"Boehner Cries, Claims He Doesn't Go Tanning In 60 Minutes Interview."

Really, the only way that this could be funnier is if John Boehner cried like Lucille Ball -- a big, open-mouthed "Wa-a-ah! Wa-a-a-a-a-ah!" Unfortunately, the Orange One doesn't have a comedic bone in his body. In an interview with Lesley Stahl, Speaker-to-be Boehner denied that he came by his burnt umber hue any way but naturally and cried when he spoke about the American dream, while sitting next to his wife Debbie.

"He cries all the time?" Stahl asked the long-suffering spouse.

"No but he's going through an emotional period too, as you said this isn't an ordinary job," Debbie answered.

Whether "emotional period" means preparing for his impending speakership or going two hours without a Tom Collins, I'll leave you to decide. (Talking Points Memo)

-Script-writing 101-
Again, not politics, but pretty funny.

Someone needs to make the movie in that last chart. (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal)

-Bonus HotD-
"Bachmann: 'Porking Has Gotten Way Out of Control.'"

Seriously, that's a direct quote. (Wonkette)
