It's possible — just possible — that there is a single solitary American, somewhere out in this vast nation of ours, who thinks that this "public option" might not be such an awful, you know, option to have.
However, House Republican leader John Boehner has yet to meet this American, perhaps because he has been too busy watching Top Chef…
"I'm still trying to find the first American to talk to who's in favor of the public option, other than a member of Congress or the administration. I've not talked to one, and I get to a lot of places and I've not had anyone come up to me — I know I'm inviting it — and lobby for the public option," Boehner said.
"This thing (the public option) is about as unpopular as a garlic milkshake," Boehner added, noting that he had not consumed such a milkshake.
Heavens no, John Boehner would never "consume such a milkshake." That would be disgusting!
Besides, I hear the lobbyist who owns John Boehner's apartment frowns on his kitchen experiments.
