That Was NOT God, Mr. Boehner

Boehner: God told him Paul Ryan should run for House speaker

On CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday Boehner said he invoked God to persuade his fellow Catholic from refusing to run for speaker to agreeing to do so.

Boehner says he told Ryan: "'This isn't about what you want to do. It's about what God wants you to do. And God has told me, he wants you to" run for speaker.

2. Well maybe it was...


Although why Boehner would be asking a basketball player for advice on the speakership is a wonder....

6. Yeah, but yer not as umportant as boner.

God only talks to repugs. The problem is, republican brains are on 'scramble' at all times and they keep getting the messages wrong.

9. Bonehead is just hard of hearing, that's all

While he was talking to God, God was thirsty.

What he really said wanted was "WINE IN A BEAKER," not "Ryan as the Speaker."
