    It hasn't bothered me until now.

    What is the deal with that picture? Could someone clue me into the context? I know Boehner is a cry baby, but what was it that made him make that face? Is he really crying, or is that laughing (in a weird way)? Hell, I don't think I have ever seen him laugh, and maybe this might a key to unlocking his terrible behavior.

      Medal of Honor ceremony. Maybe unfair to use, but hell, it's Boehner.

      And alcohol may or may not have been involved.

      He was blubbering over astronauts.

      Here is the original.

      (To be honest, I would possibly have done the same in those circumstances!)

        and also to Joan.

        I got less than 2hrs of sleep last night, I'm sort of in a fog and I have been staring at that picture for more than 10 minutes wondering "what causes this goddamn face?", and getting more and more angry by the second.

        Even though I have lost my faith in Obama and Dem leadership, my hat is off to them for being forced to negotiate with him.
