Wanker Of The Day

Apparently John Boehner needs to get out more:

Boehner claimed, with a semi-straight face, that he has yet to meet a regular “American” who favors the option — despite polls showing that a majority of voters support to the idea of having the choice of a government plan.

“I’m still trying to find the first American to talk to who’s in favor of the public option, other than a member of  Congress or the administration” said Boehner, whose sole recent foray into a public discussion of health care reform was a tea-party-style event in Ohio a few weeks back.

“I’ve not talked to one and I get to a lot of places,” he told reporters at his weekly press availability. “I’ve not had anyone come up to me — I know I’m inviting them — and lobby for the public option .

“This is about as unpopular as a garlic milkshake.”

I don’t know why Boehner wants to brag about how he lives in a Dubya-bubble and only talks to other Republicans, but maybe that’s considered a good thing in his district.
