Im going to Boehner all over your face

COMALite J: Read this post and its followups for something very serious that Bœhner did (on video!) not long ago that IMHO renders him not only unsuited to be Speaker of the House, but for which he should be impeached.


Only members of the Executive and Judiciary can be impeached. Members of the Legislative branch are expelled, by a two-thirds vote of whichever House they are a member of.

Carry on....

Okay, I'll bite. How is a little intra-party shenanigans relevant to the man's position? How is this a high crime or misdemeanor? What law was broken?

Go ahead make your case.

PS: I don't think any court would admit the cellphone vid of the purported teleprompter into evidence without just a wee bit of validation that it is what it is claimed to be and a solid chain of custody is established for it.

PPS: I think what was done was sleazy as all get out, but I'm not disputing that. I'm asking you to make your case that it's an impeachable offense.

Sock Ruh Tease: The most brain-damaging thing I can deduce from Freeperland is that apparently the new name for Obama is "pResident Django"


Ha ha ha... that's hilarious, because Django is a pop-culture reference! Conservatives are looking like they're going to repeat their sweep of the internet humor awards again in 2013.

Bachmann voted for Boehner. Free Republic is in meltdown mode.

oh my.

What's truly funny is that so many over there swore they weren't Republicans, but rather "Independents."  Now they are declaring their tenure as GOP shills as they jump ship....

The Third Man: No surprise that the old white GOP guys in the House secretly wanted Boehner.


Honesty, from Day One, their wide stance against a number of progressive issues dictated this kind of support...

I have such a major dumb when it comes to politics. WTF is wrong with these people that they have to be all crazy like? I go out of my way when voting to make sure I at least somewhat understand all of what's going on, but our congress, they apparently don't feel it's part of their job. They seem to vote on what their little line in the sand is based on and what others tell them to do. They need to start hanging out at Fark. I've learned a lot of stuff here. I think if congress members were required to pay Drew $5/mo., they'd be a lot smarter about things.

stoli n coke: Gonz: Look, I realize this is Fark, but the man's name is pronounced "Bay-nher". Let's not be a bunch of dicks, and go off half-cocked at every headline that makes some sort of juvenile reference to the man's name. He's third in line for the Presidency, which is hard to achieve. It's a great distance to rise, and they'll probably erect monuments to him in Ohio.

And while we're at it, sure, the man drinks. Who doesn't? But I don't want to spend the next 2 years talking about Boehner vomiting White Russians. Let's have a bit of respect.

Sir, I knew Stop Arresting Me. I posted with Stop Arresting Me, and you, sir, are no Stop Arresting Me.


I firmly believe that he is writing political speeches somewhere. I just hope he is collecting them to be published postmortem. Postmortem only because if any fan caught on they could not reveal it without leading to him getting fired.

Uncle Arthur gave me hope as a scared little gay boy. He was so obviously flaming, and yet he was completely accepted by his family and beloved by his niece. I was convinced I would one day lose my family and be hated by them forever when I eventually came out, so it was reassuring to see an example of a gay man who still had his family's respect and love.

Plus, he was an uber-powerful Warlock who pushed-around the uptight anti-magic Darren and teased him mercilessly. Most of the humour of Bewtiched came from watching the conservative priggish Darren being befuddled by his more powerful and intelligent wife, and it was the same with Uncle Arthur - a witty gay man in a position of power above a weaker straight guy was just not something you saw on tv.

Actually, I'm not sure it's a dynamic you see on television today, come to think of it. Bewitched was rather subversive.

/I just watched a Bewitched marathon on New Year's Day. I hadn't seen it in decades - it was awesome. I'm going to buy the dvd sets now.

It's also hilarious because Django killed nearly every southern white man he came into contact with. Are the freepers basically admitting they have no chance?

2013-01-03 03:16:21 PM  

ha-ha-guy:
Also as the Dems just showed, we're hitting the point on some issues where the Dem minority plus moderate Republicans (or those worried about reelection) can pass bills. You don't even need to deal with Boehner anymore. You get public support for your bill and then write it in such a way the moderate Reps will vote for it (and their constituents will pressure them to vote for it). Whereas if you try to deal with the Speaker you end up finding out he can't pass shiat.


Well, yes, it's widely recognized that the House needs an enema, but there are more diplomatic ways of phrasing it.

MorePeasPlease: My mother remarried a man very close to the inner workings of the House.

He has told me things only to have them come true. So I told him not to tell me what happened next but then this is the news that came. He laughed, but I told him that it was a lie. So I thought I had him until he showed me links and I had to apologize. I told him will never ask him to tell me nothing again until checking Fark first-thing every day. Then I found out he is a Farker!

Maud Dib: Trivia Jockey: MacEnvy: Alan West got 2 votes? LOL

One was Louie Gohmert, who may be one of the dumbest people ever to serve in Congress.

Just drove through his district last week. It's BFE Texas, and AND a farking DRY county.
Wal Mart Country.
Backwoods heathens.


Yep. That district was also famously gerrymandered in 2003 by Tom DeLay to make the DERP as potent as possible.

Yes I do know that. But here's the thing, they were done with that at 1:30 this afternoon. Clearly it doesn't take very long. So, why didn't he do the vote to free up the funds first? Why is he delaying that untl tomorrow? Why was it delayed this farking long to start with?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that. I mean, Louie Gohmert is like sack of bricks dumb.

Also, nobody in their right mind -- including Cantor - - would ever touch that broken caucus Speakership right now. No way.


I love this. The GOP is so lame they aren't willing to actually do work. But they are absolutely *thrilled* to call out vets, teachers and single parents for being "leeches" and "not picking themselves up by the bootstraps".

Good luck to Boehner. If he's lucky, they won't run him out on the rail when the GOP loses more ground in 2014.

Which one of you beautiful people is this:

To: TexasCajun

Yep, I wonder if we have more than caving in going on.

No content with Nazies hunting adult Jews in France, the Vichy French insisted on hunting the kids for them, which the Nazies had no room for and did not want.

The GOPe vs. Pelosie argument and treachery going on of conservatives is an interesting burning question.

What side are they on? Are they really promoting Obama more than liberals do?

A bully usually has a following of bullies. They usually attack what is not attackable because they are too cowardly to defend from what attacks them and chews their rectum up. So they attack the inattackable, the innocent or the righteous.

This self digging of the grave that politicians stuck on cowardice stupidity and corruption would be fun to watch if we were not getting splatters from this homosexualoid denial widening further their rectal acceptance of STDs.

Death by bunga bunga entertainment.

I mean, why have the purse strings at all? Give the biatch Obama the whole credit card and let him rob (ahem, control) the banks for his vacation management in Hawai.

All the past Genocides legitimize these vacations, it is so dignified.

And the Secret Service muting our freedom of speech and right to stand up straight to their faces during campaigns... yeah, whatever.

I just love to see an easily stuck on stupid government trying to attack and dig up further its own grave trying to make right by making more wrongs. It's great endebting behavior. It needs to continue.

Conservatives need to continue challenge their stuckness and doing more and more wrong until this sheiz flushes itself away completely, heads in their own arses. The whole deal gang of them, domestic and foreign homosexualoid bunch of them.

Go ahead, make my day, kill and rob the elderly instead of asking them how they raised money for their retirement. Nothing like a bunch of dumbass bureaucrates telling us how to do it instead of keeping to just raising the funds as they should normaly do... noooooo! they have to tell us how to do it the way they corruptedly do it... because they "built that".

Peaces of dung crap.
