  •  Boehner (to Gohmert)... (0+ / 0-)

    ..."So what's it gonna take for you to switch your vote?"

    Gohmert: "My integrity is not for sale, Mr. Speaker."

    Boehner (walking over to his wet bar): "You're a bourbon man, right Louie?"

    Gohmert: "My integrity is not for sale, Mr. Speaker."

    Boehner (pouring a triple of whatever's handy): Y'know I got Mary Carey coming by later tonight to press the flesh with some of our colleagues. Should I move you to the front of the list?"

    Gohmert: "My...eh...integrity is not for sale, Mr. Speaker."

    Boehner (smiling): "She's gonna bring some of the "talent" that have been working on her productions. I hear they're extremely good at what they do, and they don't take no for an answer...ever. She's really high on this girl Satin. Boy I tell. That Satin: she caused a temporary shortage of silicon for a week or so..."

    Gohmert (struggling): My...ah...er...I might want to reflect on this decision...

    Boehner: "Reflection is good for the soul, Louie. Satin will probably be good for every damn thing else that you could possibly imagine. See ya tonight at the C Street basement. The Pfizer rep will be there if you need any assistance..."

    The so-called "rising tide" is lifting only yachts.
