10 Boehner siblings attend swearing-in

By Rachel Weiner

The new Congress convenes for the first time Wednesday with a full schedule of events. We have full coverage the first day of the new Congress, complete with live video of the swearing in ceremony and what you're saying on Twitter.

Ten of John Boehner's 11 siblings came to the Capitol for his swearing-in as speaker of the House. John's brother Greg, who lives in Georgia, was unable to attend.

If gas isn't fifty cents/gallon tomorrow morning I'm investing all my time on blogs demanding to know why not.

Just saw the video of Boner being elected Speaker, and he was glowing extra-special orange. Must be happy! He's like a mood ring!!! :)

Jees, can you imagine Boner and the lot of them blubbering like a bunch of hungry poopy babies today? They're going to have to clean up with mops.
