Gavel envy: Nancy Pelosi trolls House Speaker with #BoehnerStyle hashtag
As relieved as we were to learn that Senate House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s take on #BoehnerStyle does not consist of a K-pop dance (yet), we’re finding it hard to criticize House Speaker John Boehner for bringing 37 votes to repeal Obamacare to the House floor. It certainly was a better use of time than however many minutes went into putting this graphic together.
We’re not sure what the tweet is supposed to accomplish on the Hill, but if Pelosi thinks that Republicans at large are big fans of #BoehnerStyle, she hasn’t been paying attention — that #FireBoehner campaign wasn’t started by liberals, after all. And if Pelosi is just now starting to get serious about jobs, we have an empty chair at the (now out-of-work) White House Jobs Council to sell her.
Editor’s note: This post has been corrected. Of course, former Speaker Pelosi is the House Minority Leader and not the Senate Minority Leader. We regret the error.
