    now that she's made this statement about Boehner? Will they comment on her hair, makeup, choice of clothes, weight?

    Why don't they start every story on Boehner with "Boehner, looking like he could use a little more/less time on the tanning bed, took to the podium today to announce...."

    If Boehner were a woman, the press would speculate about his (her) ability to successfully balance home and professional life. You can't have it all, ladies and the speaker proves it!

    •  Easy: they'll say she's shrill and pushy (2+ / 0-)

      and maybe even hysterical.  Some will certainly call her the B-word.

        should, from here on out, stand for Boehner.

        And it should mean someone who does nothing or someone who prevents others from doing anything.

        "Quit being such a Boehner and bringing the rest of the group down." Fill in "group" with PTA, work crew, legislative body, etc.
