Heard on the Hill: A Very Happy Boehner Birthday

Posted November 12, 2010 at 6:13pm

What do you get as a birthday gift for the man who has everything? How about the title of Speaker?

We hear that Minority Leader John Boehner will be getting a special birthday present this year. It turns out House leadership elections have been scheduled for Wednesday, which just happens to be the Ohio Republican’s birthday.

If the orange one is elected Speaker, he will have much to celebrate. Not only will he be second in line to the presidency (after Vice President Joseph Biden, of course), but he’ll also turn the big 6-1. That’s no small feat for a man who loves to smoke cigarettes and drink.

Here’s hoping GOP Members will sing the famed “Boehner Birthday Song.”
