The gentleman from Ohio casts 3 votes for...

The House Republicans have elected John Boehner as their new leader, to replace scandal tarred Tom DeLay. But they had to hold a do-over on the vote. In the first round of balloting, MORE votes were cast than there were GOP members. They are so freakin' corrupt, they even tried to rig their own internal election. Priceless.

Boehner, meanwhile, is not exactly pure as the driven snow himself. He once, famously, was caught passing out money from the tobacco lobby on the House floor, sort of a no-no.

He now says he regrets that. Lovely.

Well, I guess he probably is cleaner than DeLay. And I believe that is called damning with faint praise.
