Whaddya wanna bet Boehner will start to blubber in the middle of the inevitable toast to his new found power... never mind the shooting victims. It will be all about him:
Speaker John Boehner will host a cocktail party for the Republican National Committee at the same time that President Barack Obama will be addressing the nation at the memorial service for victims of the Tucson shooting.
The Ohio Republican is holding a 7 p.m. cocktail reception Wednesday night for 168 RNC members, who are in the Washington area for an annual meeting. The event is sponsored by Boehner’s political action committee and will take place at Maryland’s National Harbor resort.
What a typically compassionate bunch.
A Boehner aide said he'll be leaving the Big RNC Do before Obama starts speaking. What he didn't say is where he'll go.
Oh, but I kid the Tippler of the House.
