Apparently John Boehner gets the sads

when people call him things like 'backstabber' and 'betraying bastard'.  Not enough to stop being those things, but being called them(I'm skipping 'squish' as that's far milder than what a lot of people call him).

And this "How dare you vote against me!  I'll punish you!" bullshit...  Loathsome bastard.

The NYEffingTimes once again demonstrates their journalistic integrity.  Or what passes for it there.
Instead, she told French news media, the man said, “I’m not going to kill you because you’re a woman, we don’t kill women, but you must convert to Islam, read the Quran and cover yourself,” she recalled.
“Don’t be afraid, calm down, I won’t kill you,” the gunman told her in a steady voice, with a calm look in his eyes, she recalled. “You are a woman. But think about what you’re doing. It’s not right.”
This is not an 'error' or an 'edit'; this is a flat-out lie, a falsifying of the facts by the Times because the truth doesn't fit their agenda.

How do you censor the images those men died defending and then say “Je suis Charlie” with a straight face? And more to the point, how do you do it when those images are at the center of a major international news event? Steyn makes the same point here as Ross Douthat did yesterday. It’s one thing to reject a cartoon of Mohammed on grounds of poor taste or poor skill. That’s an op-ed decision. It’s another thing entirely to refuse to publish it when it’s part of the lead story in every paper in the western-speaking world.
