O goody the Boner show again!

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Were all those colorful ties voter tested for a positive response rate?

JohnG's picture

Of course, $100MM polls are necessary for these important issues.  Like pastel colors.  And shades of tan.  And which hairspray is best.

I had to go out and get some lunch.

Did Boehner say anything?  Or just the S.O.S.?

JohnG's picture

All I heard was the "parent voice" from Charlie Brown.

Wah wah wa wa wah wa.....

DoChenRollingBearing's picture

Thx JohnG!  Glad I didn't miss anything

There's something seriously wrong with me b/c I immaturely laugh now whenever ZH runs any headline with 'Boehner' in the title.


tekhneek's picture

Yeah. I caught myself saying 'boner' in a conversation with a co-worker today, talking shit and realized that's not what his last name really is, but, like you, I can't help myself but laugh every time I read it.

I really think the pinnacle was seeing 'Weiner' and a 'Bo(eh)ner' at the same time on the ZH home page.

Every time it got me. Every frickin' time.

Bullish for stocks.

NFLX just gained around 10% right after the close.

Robotrader must be happy.

Hmm...wait, iPad was upside down.

Robotrader must be shitting his panties.

  You made my day! That was funny!

DoChenRollingBearing's picture

Second great laugh of the day Ahmeexnal, thanks!

You had me going for a minute there, I've been had! LOL!!! Great comment.

Those ties represent the color noose the respective politico wishes to have when the whole Amerikan board game is finally flipped up from the playing table. 

Boehner: "What the fuck do you mean faith has been lost in our currency?  I'm going home."

"Tosses the game board from the table,"

When Boner talks, p*ssy listens

Bhoaner keeps pulling out at the last second. He'd better be careful, because if he makes one mistake, this whole mess will be his baby.


DoChenRollingBearing's picture

I get a good laugh almost every day around here.

Yet Another Reason (YAR) I like Zero Hedge.

And he is against abortion, pro-life, anti-choice . . . except the rules don't apply to anyone in Congress.

Shell Game's picture

lol!  too funny.


It's all about control..

tekhneek's picture

Yep. He's a "hard one" to beat.

I was thinking about it, these people can't be this stupid.  This is simply too much like a play or game.  Are they that ignorant to the waking tide in this country that they don't realize how transpartent this whole charade is?!?  Are they simply that bad at gauging the mass' awareness?

john39's picture

No, they don't understand that the masses are awakening.  The ground is changing under their feet, and they don't have any other playbook.  One easy example, take a close look at the pics of the alleged Oslo killer that came out a few days ago, the military uniform, the frogman uniform... obvious fakes.  The entire event is transparent, and people get it.  Three years, people would not see...  but that has changed.  TPTB are in deep shit.

"I was thinking about it, these people can't be this stupid."

I have to ask if these people are not that stupid, how did they get into this debt mess to begin with?

Frog-And-Toad's picture

*Crickets* (10 second pause)



MacGruber's picture

Reminds me of the time I was at a fundraiser and met one of these congressional asshats. It's all summed up by our brief encounter. Me: "so what did you do before you were a congressman" CM: "I'm a U.S. congressman" Me: "Yes, I know. I was asking what you did before that." Awkward stare. Then his pissant aide, all of 21 is about to interject when suddenly "I used to sell vinyl siding"

So you see, the reason they seem unsophisticated is because they are. No need to over analyze tactics or search for some grand strategy. These douchebags are really just vinyl siding salesmen.

disabledvet's picture

it's been a tough road, i agree. but look at how far they've come and ask "will they make it? will they make it?"

RobotTrader's picture

Nobody cares about the debt ceiling, they are more interested in the NFL and NBA lockouts.

I heard that Philly Eagles fans are already walking around with Brett Favre No. 4 jerseys already...


DonnieD's picture

Nobody cares about the NBA lockout.

Whatta's picture

That's right. End the NBA with the Mav's as the last recorded NBA Champion....woooooo!!!

redpill's picture

I care about the lockout.  I'd love to have a year when I didn't have to watch basketball at the local watering hole!

Logans_Run's picture

Agreed, but the idea of a Congressional lockout is really beginning to grow on me!

RmcAZ's picture

There's an NBA lockout?

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I wonder if these asshats practice (in front of the mirror of course) that "concerned look" everyone standing behind the speaker has hanging on their puss?

fuu's picture

Lucky for them all they had on their face during the boner meeting was a concerned look.

TheFourthStooge-ing's picture

They definitely weren't wearing their O face.


DoChenRollingBearing's picture

EXCELLENT, fuu!  LOL...  LOL...

I can empathize with your cynicism CD; however, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar even with dear leader.

johny2's picture

CD got it right, Boehner is obviously enjoying screwing around with Obama. The concernd look is faked. 

Dr. Richard Head's picture

As fake as his Ohio tan.  Most of us non-fake bakers look like albinos until August really.

Boehnor's political career shows that left/right paradigm still exists in the minds of the masses, in Ohio at least.

wisefool's picture

Slight off center behind the camera is $350k/yr junior consultant on lease from PWC, BDO, etc That performs the same gestures that animal trainers do in hollywood movies, before all those movies went CGI.

It really is interesting to see those types on set with "the talent."

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Wait a minute. Is "the talent" the monkeys or the monkey trainer? I forget.

FunkyMonkeyBoy's picture

Let's here what Boner's masters have told him to pass on to the sheeple.

Chief KnocAHoma's picture

He has painted O into a corner. Now the question is, will the Prez take us all over the cliff, or swallow his massive ego and be Boner's bitch.

I am The Chief.

Hearst's picture

Obama will cave.  He has only two choices now.  He must bow to Boehner or else default will be blamed on him.  His ony other option?  Executive order XXXXX eliminating the debt ceiling.  Think it can't be done?  Just watch.
