Say It Ain’t So, John: Boehner Nixes Presidential Run

In a wide-ranging interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, His Orange-Ness makes a Sherman statement: Hell no, I’m NOT running for president!

Boehner explains that such a bid (which no one, as far as I know, is clamoring for) would put a serious damper on his favorite activities: playing golf, smoking cigarettes and drinking red wine.

Sheesh . . . Tell us something we didn’t know, John!

UPDATE: Joe Scarborough chimes in on the boozy Boehner lifestyle:

On his “Morning Joe” show Wednesday morning, the former Florida Republican congressman described Boehner as a disengaged pol whose work ethic doesn’t hold a candle to that of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

“I hear it on the Hill,” Scarborough said.  “I’m sure you hear it on the Hill all the time.  It’s not reported.  But so many Republicans tell me this is a guy that is not the hardest worker in the world.  After 5 o’clock, 6 o’clock at night, he’s disengaged at best . . .

“Nobody’s talking about it,” Scarborough continued.  “Every Republican I talk to says John Boehner, by 5 or 6 o’clock at night, you can see him at bars.  He is not a hard worker.”

Disengaged?  That’s a euphemism, kids.  He means . . . Drunk . . . Buzzed . . .  Three Sheets To The Wind . . . Hammered . . . Shitfaced . . . and finally, in the cold light of morning . . . Hung Over.

Your tax dollars at work.  I hope Boehner’s a big tipper.  At least he’ll be good for something in Washington.
