Will Big Tobacco’s Former Bagman Really Be the Next Speaker?

With their loud voices and antic style, the “tea party” activists may lead voters to expect something new and different if the Republican Party returns to power. But observing the man who would wield that power if his party wins a midterm majority should swiftly dispel that illusion.

There is nothing fresh or surprising about Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, the would-be speaker, a figure so closely associated with corporate special interests that he looks, sounds and behaves exactly like a lobbyist. He golfs, drinks, smokes and maintains an unusually bronzed complexion thanks to company jets that whisk him away to his favorite Florida resorts. He seems as if he could have stepped straight out of “Thank You for Smoking,” Christopher Buckley’s classic spoof of Washington’s cynical, morally empty K Street.


Can we dare hope that either lung or skin cancer will plague this awful person eventually?

Well, we know thought cancer has already thoroughly over taken him, so some bodily form shouldn’t be far behind.
