5. Amazing.

There is still a Republican in this nation that will speak to either one of them. It would make a beautiful story.

9. So THAT's why he was crying again!

But seriously, as mentioned above, probably the "kiss of death"... (one can only hope) and that made him cry.

But then, maybe they can communicate as only one Cheeto to another (although temporary) Cheeto can!! Maybe R$ was trying to convince him to give up the Crayola image for his own sake this time around. Either way, I can't imagine how R$ could give anyone good advice.

13. So Romney thinks he is the titular head of the Republican Party now???

I swear, that "Party" doesn't know which end is up. "John Boehner is reelected speaker of the House in the 113th Congress and Romney calls to congratulate him." That is one sick effed up bit of reality, right there... Geesh!

16. I guarantee Romney will be back to run in 2016.

It's a fucking certainty.

I can't decide if that's good because he's a gaffe factory, or bad because goddamnit go away already.

Rachel is right, Boehner really is bad at his job.

23. Maybe the Mitt curse will strike again. No one is paying Paul Ryan too much attention, though ....

he had to take some Teapublican flack over his 'cliff' vote. He took a phone call from Romney and now John Boehner has taken one. Bet you he's been drinking a lot more lately.
