Boehner Booze Watch Meter Seismic Activity

John Boehner Pulls an Edmund Muskie

One of the things I enjoy most about this blog is reading the site traffic stats.  I can view the daily traffic stats over time and they read like a seismograph of alcoholic activity located in the lower region of John Boehner’s liver.

I unfortunately don’t have the time to check in daily and update as often as I would like, however, I can always tell something has happened in the political cosmos involving our beloved boozer when I look at the hits per day. It usually means one of a number of or combination of things: John Boehner has gone on a tirade in some interview and made a silly or candid quote.  I’ve been linked from somewhere else.  John Boehner has be videotaped or recorded – drunk, in public – again.  Or as in today’s case: John Boehner cried.

And the thing that’s so great, is that all of these items usually have one simple, internet search theme involving a variation of two words in common: “Drunk Boehner.”  Key word searches read like spikes on an alcohol Richter scale.

Case in point are a sample of today’s search engine gems:

john boehner drunk 68
john boehner alcoholic 65
boehner alcoholic 56
boehner drunk 32
is john boehner an alcoholic 19
john boehner alcoholism 15
boehner alcoholism 7
is boehner an alcoholic 6
john boehner drinking problem 6
Other search terms 151

Undoubtedly, today’s influx in traffic is related to Boehner’s sobbing display on last nights 60 Minutes interview with Leslie Stahl.

If you haven’t seen the clip, check out the 5-minute highlight clip link here.

C’Mon Boehner!  Get it together man…Democrats are supposed to be the Party of Whimps dude!  You’re pulling a Muskie!

I wonder what Dick Morris would have to say about Boehner after accusing then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of having a “psychological breakdown” on the campaign trail when she cried back in 2008.

I found this cool CNN video about politicians crying.  They ask lot’s of important questions about women crying in politics:

Yet I digress…There’s nothing wrong with a grown man crying.  I’m still lead to tears everytime I watch the scene where the mom dies in the movie “The Bear”. (For those of you that just want to skip ahead to the death scene fast forward to about the 4:20 mark).  But when Boehner breaks it down for Stahl, and explains why he can’t visit schools anymore, he creepily moves from the category of a leader not afraid to show he has a heart, to an emotional basketcase.

Stahl: On election night, what made you sad, what got to you that night?

Boehner: I was talking, trying to talk about the fact that I’ve been chasing the American Dream my whole career. There’s some things that are very difficult to talk about. Family. Kids. I can’t go to a school anymore. I used to go to a lot of schools. And you see all these little kids running around. Can’t talk about it.

Stahl: Why?

Boehner: Making sure that these kids have a shot at the American Dream, like I did. It’s important.


John, please stop mixing the booze with the anti-depressants.

    Sorry, I’m late getting to the party. Thank you for providing a much needed Public service. I’m sure you casught his denial of using a tanning bed, or spray. This child among men is a joke. “REPUBLICORP” has its puppet, and there can’t be anything good that comes of this!

    I remember when both Edmund Muskie and Patricia Schroeder were forced out of presidential runs because they cried.

    I guess, like everything else, it’s okay when you’re a Republican.

  3. Michael says:

    I think He is not cut out for this. He does need to get professinal HELP.

  4. He needs to get help. That’s all We need
    in the White House.

    You’re just a sore looser:)

  7. The image I found disturbing was that of Bill Clinton tearing up over some crappy “music”. Rachmaninoff’s “How Beeautiful This Place Is” from opus 21; Dvorak’s “Hymn to the Moon” from his opera “Rusalka”; even an abstract instrumental piece like the “Heilege Dankgesang” from Beethoven’s String Quartet #15, ok. No wonder Hil sat steely-eyed.

    He looked pretty miserable in that childhood family photo in that enormous family. Not enough attention as a child? Beaten as a child? Witnessed family alcoholism? Who knows? He has a lot buried and screaming to get out, no matter how he tries to drink it down. The guy needs some MAJOR professional help ( and BTW, he knows exactly ‘why’ he cries when he sees children, he just cannot get it out). Seriously messed up.
