John Boehner — Exceptionally Wrong

Speaker of the House John Boehner apparently can sleep with his eyes open. How else do we explain his odd (and objectively wrong) criticism of Obama’s State of the Union Speech?

If there’s one thing President Obama did go on about a bit about in the State of the Union, it was American exceptionalism — as the National Journal’s Ron Fournier noted at some length.

Two who didn’t entirely notice were Speaker John Boehner and Kathleen Parker. From Parker-Spitzer:

BOEHNER: Well, they — they’ve refused to talk about America exceptionalism. …

It should also be noted that Obama called Boehner Speaker of “The Greatest Nation on Earth.”

Boehner’s nonsensical complaint inspired my latest limerick:

John Boehner — Exceptionally Wrong
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Exceptionalism was missing
From the SOTU says Boehner, dismissing
Obama’s big speech
Which he tries to impeach.
Not list’ning enables the dissing.

    No limerick…It just amazes me how some of these fools in congress expect us to take them serious when they keep uttering complete nonsense.

    The really amazing part is how effective it is. Some people really do take them seriously.

    Boehner is a walking joke
    When he starts weeping, it makes me choke!
    Congress used to be respectable
    Now it’s reprehensible
    I know…it doesn’t fit, but it’s true!
