Ah, golly. So, as you might have heard, Representative John A. Boehner (as you might also have heard, that's pronounced BAY-ner) of Ohio was elected as House majority leader today, beating out acting leader and DeLay buddy Roy Blunt, Jr. in a bit of an upset seen as a reflection of Republican concern over voter concern at all that corruption nonsense.

It's sort of sad that Boehner is seen as the squeaky clean guy in this race, because in 1995 he passed out checks from the tobacco lobby on the House floor before a vote. And while I don't want to seem all prude or anything, isn't that kind of, like, shady?

In related news, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today, and wrote bad poetry. Dark days, my friends, dark days.
