You know why John Boehner is Speaker of the House? He made his bones passing out corporate lobbyist checks on the floor. He was a bag man who worked his way up by proving his loyalty to the corporate masters, starting with the tobacco industry and then moving up through Exxon, Andarko, Comcast and finally, collecting the big bucks from AIG (right before they helped collapse our economy). What a clown.
