Boner proves that self-pity can trump empathy
Comparing the double standard for crying applied to men like John Boehner and women like Nancy Pelosi, the incoming and outgoing Speakers of the House respectively, Barbara WaWa comments:
“…this guy has an emotional problem. That every time he talks about anything that’s not raise taxes [sic], he cries.”
The Boner cries about how hard it was growing up working menial jobs, but as Joy Behar observes:
“…has very little empathy for people who are in that position now.”
Yup. Strong doses of nicotine, bourbon, Quick Tan spray, UV radiation, and narcissism might just do that to ya. And guilt, perhaps, from passing out checks from the tobacco industry on the House floor in exchange for votes.
Truly a wuss man of his times.
