Mulligans: John Boehner's metaphors

By Dana Milbank

Oh no, he didn't!

Politics Daily: John Boehner Calls Vote on Middle-Class-Only Tax Cut 'Chicken Crap'


Even Arnold is making jokes about Meg Whitman's illegal-immigrant housekeeper. The retiring governator says he's California's second-most famous immigrant, after Whitman's maid. San Francisco Chronicle: Schwarzenegger, saying his goodbyes, ribs media and Meg Whitman


An Oklahoma state senator says his steering of a $10 million grant to a juvenile center has "nothing to do with" his affair with the center's lobbyist. And we believe him! Oklahoman: Romance, contract link Oklahoma senator with lobbyist

Actually, Politics Daily’s headline is “chicken crap.” What Boehner said was, “"I'm tying to catch my breath so I don't refer to this maneuver that's going on today as chicken crap. But this is nonsense, right?"

Wrong! But presumably he did catch his breath because he called it nonsense, not chicken crap.

To be precise, Boehner is full of “bull crap.” Republicans could easily help pass the tax cut extension for ordinary Americans before they expire in 3 weeks. Then they can still try to extend their billionaire’s welfare plan in the next session.
Very funny, Arnold! But please don’t say, “Aahhl be baaahhk!”
I guess we’ve established what the lobbyist IS. Now we’re just haggling over the price.
