Boehner Embraces the Tea Party

Sterling, Va. — House GOP Leader John Boehner just made an impromptu visit to a small tea-party rally outside Tart lumber yard. “If the American people stay engaged, Congress will do exactly what you demand,” he said, as he accepted a silver tea kettle from a rally member. “Thank you for being involved in our democracy.”

“We know you are taking it in the head a lot,” said one activist. “We got your back, sir.” Boehner’s reply: “I appreciate that.”

With that, Boehner jumped into a black SUV, on his way back to Washington, as cries of “We love Speaker Boehner” echoed throughout the parking lot.
