@ 27 :
Since Goethe is pronounced "gerta", why isn't Boehner pronounced "berner"?


It actually would be pronounced that way, back in the Fatherland . Boehner's speech sounded better in the original German, too.

@2 Boehner is of German ancestry.

In German when there are two consecutive vowels the first vowel is silent and the second is pronounced. Often that second vowel is an 'e' which is pronounced as a short vowel, as in met or bet. In German it would sound more like Benner. With the second syllable not as the hard 'er' sound either but ryhme with Stir or Slur.

Mueller is pronounced here as Mule-er, but in German sounds more like Miller.

ARE YOU F*ING KIDDING ME? Elected to stop "business as usual"? That why we elected a Democratic House, Senate and President, to stop the war spending, torture and total corruption by the Republicans. We got some incredible things done (like health care reform), despite the Republicans' best obstructionist efforts.

Now mark my words, for the next two years we're going to see some of the most evil bullsh*t by this new crop of ultra-wacked-out racist, homophobic, GOP, religious fundamentalist Tea Party nutjobs America has ever seen.

Will they cut military spending? Not a snowballs' chance in Arizona, but you know what they will cut? Everything that doesn't directly benefit the rich. Watch it. They'll do it all wrapped in the flag and carrying a fiery cross.

Their one and only mantra? "Crush Obama!"

Which is the same as saying "Crush Your Hope for Meaningful Change" that the American people elected Obama for.

If you identify and support the Republican Party or the Tea Party, you're just as evil as they are.

is it me or is he bobbing and rolling his head around thinking "get this thing over with and give me that damn thing"? I could see a Youtube mashup being made.

@9 Both heads. Really, I'd just like to beat the hell out of him. He's a self-serving POS, like most politicians. *sigh* God, I'm in a horrible mood today.

Usage is what dictates a word's pronunciation; ergo, if enough of us say "boner" (as in an error or gaffe), "boner" it will be. In one's most perverted boner dreams, one can only hope for a Boehner-Santorum ticket. That makes my 'beck' (a male clit) tickle...

I live in that rat bastard's district. He's an asshole but this area is so deeply conservative he'll probably never be voted out. I'd like to whack his head with that big, manly gavel.

Boehner was up, then he was down, and now he's back up again. Just shows you can't keep a good Boehner down.

Nevertheless @2 - that video results in major Bo(eh)ner-shrinkage. In a few years, will anyone recognize what kick the can was all about? Thus begins two years of obstructionism practiced at a criminal level. At least in Congress, it demonstrably does not get better. We might as well be represented by grunion.
