Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh.) made news earlier this week when he allegedly told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) "Go f--k yourself."
NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno commented on this Thursday saying of Reid, "Doesn't he look like a guy who heard that a lot in high school? Usually followed by a wedgie then getting stuffed in a locker?” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Early in his opening monologue, Leno teased, “Boy, it is starting to get nasty in Washington. According to Politico, after being publicly accused by Harry Reid of running a dictatorship in the House, John Boehner told Reid to go “F” himself. That's what he said. He said, ‘Go F yourself.’”
“I don't want to sound insensitive,” Leno continued, “but have you seen Harry Reid? I mean, doesn't he look like a guy who heard that a lot in high school? Usually followed by a wedgie then getting stuffed in a locker?”
I actually never thought about it, but now that Jay's mentioned it.
That said, it's nice to see someone in the media go after Reid.
The way the press handled the last Congress, you would have thought the Republicans controlled both chambers rather than just the House.
