House Republicans Bungle Their Vote for Majority Leader

So the new House Majority Leader is John Boehner, which unfortunately for all of us, is pronounce Bay-ner. (Thanks so much to an anonymous commenter on the previous post for raining on my parade)

Anyhoo, the really perplexing part about how they elected him, is highly reminiscent of the returns that came out of Ohio in 2004.

House Republicans are taking a mulligan on the first ballot for
Majority Leader. The first count showed more votes cast than
Republicans present at the Conference meeting.

Evidently, they can't even run a fair election within their own ranks.

    Don't let it ruin your day, Christine. I shall always know him as "Old Boner". Not to be confused with his son, "Young Boner", or rather "Boner the Younger", as he prefers to be called.

    I know a bit about this guy. He's pretty popular in his district, he's actually my friends' representative, he doesn't do the pork barrel stuff (which will make him popular now) because there isn't that kind of industry where he is in Cincinnati. He's no less corrupt or anything than DeLay, he'll just appear that way.

    a boner after de Lay is kind of backwards isn't it?
