VIDEO: John Boehner puckers up


boehner kiss


"What did you get Mrs. Boehner for Valentine's Day?"

John Boehner:

"Same thing I got you..."

His verbal reply wasn't the part that will require brain bleach.

We can thank BuzzFeed for this Moment of Ew, or as they called it, "John Boehner sexing it up for Valentine's Day."

We here at The Political Carnival sincerely apologize for subjecting you to said "sexing it up" gesture from the Republican Speaker of the House, but we feel an obligation to share all the news, whether good, bad, or ugly.

Oh, but I kid the Boehner. I'm sure his wife finds His Orangeness very alluring.

Here's a little something to cleanse your palate:

Happy Valentine's Day.

PhotOH! "We just had to use whatever heads we had lying around." George W. Bush's was one of them.


Heady stuff:

(CNN)HBO issued an apology Wednesday after astute observers of the popular show "Game of Thrones" noticed a familiar silhouette on a decapitated head atop a spike. [...]

"It's not a political statement. We just had to use whatever heads we had lying around," one of the creators says.

HBO is "deeply dismayed" that a severed GW Bush prop head was used in a scene in their season finale of "Game of Thrones." There were a several severed parts in the scene, and since W's head was, you know, lying around (as it's wont to do), it was picked up and used.

I guess there was a shortage of non-notable heads.

Here's the apology that appeared on, yes, Facebook:

"We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste... We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production."

Wait... they're having his head removed? Again?

It makes one wonder what other celebrity heads are lying around.

Because I just heard John Boehner's press conference and needed revenge


Just go to Vanity Fair, here. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get sick to your stomach, you'll thank me.

Then get back to me in Comments.

Go ahead... what are you waiting for?

You're welcome.


VIDEO: Vaughn Ward plagiarizes Obama in announcement speech


Vaughn Ward... Vaughn Ward... Now why does that name sound familiar? Think... think...

Got it!

I said it then, and I'll say it now: Ew.

But wait! That's not all!
VIDEO: Sarah Palin backs Republican candidate who thinks Puerto Rico is a country

Why, that was only a few days ago! Remember?

Vaughn Ward (R), a congressional candidate in Idaho, thinks Puerto Rico is a country, and then doesn't give one half a hoot that he's wrong.

"It doesn't matter."

Um, yeah, it does.

Via Dave Weigel:

On Thursday, several Republican office-holders asked Ward to quit the race after another plagiarism allegation was raised.

The gift that keeps on giving. He and Barbie McLipSchmutz make a great team.

Guess the Crush: "There’s just something about her… You have a little crush on her. It’s hard not to”


By GottaLaff

It's time to play Guess the Crush! I'll give you some hints:




Give up yet? More clues:

The quote is from this guy:

This guy is Michael Goldfarb.

Still guessing?

Another clue:

Daddy's little girl.

Clinically insane.

Not sure yet? I'll drop the answer down for those who are still playing Guess the Crush.

Here's the entire quote:

“I was excited about Palin; I’m more excited about Liz. The same sort of excitement you get when you hear her father, except she’s this petite blonde with five kids … There’s just something about her… You have a little crush on her. It’s hard not to.”

Yes, that Liz.

"There's just something about her."

"The same sort of excitement you get when you hear her father"??

So Goldfarb has a heart on for Dickless McHeartStent? Daddy Dearest gives him a chill up his leg the way Dickette does?
