OK, NOW I'm worried about John Boehner's mental/emotional state.
House Speaker John Boehner couldnt keep it together when presenting a Congressional Gold Medal to astronaut Neil Armstrong on Wednesday. C-SPAN video shows Boehner getting choked up after he handed Armstrong the award.



It's as if Boehner is the sum of the entire republican party as a whole: A bunch of mentally unstable crazies who do nothing but cry and whine and are an embarrassment to America.

2. It seems like some of the folks in the House would get together and do an intervention ....
they need to talk Boehner into going to the doctor to see exactly what is wrong with him - the crying episodes are bizarre.

16. He damn sure needs something.
I would think that the people close to him would realize that his behavior is not normal. Maybe they do but he doesn't seem to be getting the help he obviously needs.

6. I've always been worried about his mental state, but his emotional state is terrible. He is in need
Therapy and perhaps medication.

25. I usually love what you say...
But with the plethora of available charges to level against this dipshit, you're going for color? I know Obama isn't your favorite political figure but how would you feel if someone called him high yellow?

Boner's a melungeon. He's not the same color as you. get over it.

30. I was going to say lighten up, but then I think you might be kidding with us:
Melungeon ( /məˈlʌndʒən/ mə-lun-jən) is a term traditionally applied to one of a number of "tri-racial isolate" groups of the Southeastern United States, mainly in the Cumberland Gap area of central Appalachia, which includes portions of East Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and East Kentucky. Tri-racial describes populations thought to be of mixed European, sub-Saharan African, and Native American ancestry. Although there is no consensus on how many such groups exist, estimates range as high as 200.<1><2>
DNA testing of Melungeon descendants has been limited, but the Melungeon DNA Project, which has made its results public, so far shows overwhelming mixed European and sub-Saharan African haplotypes of females and males in several families traditionally identified as Melungeon and considered so by researchers.

Boehner is not a Melungeon. He's a Tanbootgeon.

23. I'm not worried about him. I'm profoundly embarrassed by him
He's handing out well deserved plaques to American heroes and he blubbers drunkenly all over their medals. At least they have the presence of mind to look honored.

27. K&R #21, It's ironic (& my English profs said to use "ironic" SPARINGLY)
that Rethugs shed no tears over their pitiless political philosophy but find this character defect (alcohol dementia) acceptable. You know, like they are SO anti-CHOICE, claim that every embryo is inviolable, but once the embryos grow up and need social services or turn into Wall Street PROTESTORS, the Rethugs are for KILLING THEM ALL!

35. The contrast between Reid handling himself with class and Boehner the baby IS quite HILARIOUS.
Dude, it's just a photo-op.
