Dozens Killed in Ohio Bridge Collapse; John Boehner Among the Dead
Ironically, it’s the same bridge that President Obama used as a photo op several weeks ago, when he was stressing the importance of fixing America’s crumbling infrastructure.
Just yesterday, Republicans again defeated a bill that would have provided $60 billion for infrastructure repair and would have put tens of thousands of Americans back to work immediately. And now the inevitable has happened.
John Boehner’s wife (or was it one of his mistresses?) sobbed:
“He hardly ever used that bridge. He just assumed that when it collapsed, only the riffraff would get killed.”
Just a split second before John Boehner’s car hit the water, somebody snapped this photo of him.
Was John Boehner crying because of guilt? Maybe in his final moment, he realized he had been wrong to keep using millions of Americans as hostages solely for the purpose of making Obama look bad for next year’s election.
Or was he crying because he knew he was just seconds away from getting hoisted on his own petard?
Or was he crying just because, well, because John Boehner was always crying?
We’ll never know.
