Irony just called and is more than a little pissed off it keeps getting abused by Republicans:
Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday.
When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, "Hey, people deserve to know what’s in this pile of s–t."
As we all know, the Republicans spent the last eight years doing nothing but passing legislation that benefited the American people, not lobbyists and corporations, and gave the bills enough time for honest and spirited debate on the House floor so that everyone had the opportunity to read the bills before they voted on them.
Don’t get me wrong — the bill that was passed on Friday night leaves a metric assload to be desired. But this pretty much sums up Boehner’s position:
[O]ne Democratic aide quipped, "What do you expect from a guy who thinks global warming is caused by cow manure?"
