We Triple-Dog Dare You, Mr. Boehner

  By Barbara Morrill

On Sunday, Speaker of the House John Boehner made an astonishing claim:

STEPHANOPOULOS: ... I take it from your answer that you're not prepared to schedule a clean bill on government funding.

BOEHNER: There are not the votes in the House to pass a clean CR.

Baloney. There are more than enough Republicans who have said they would vote for a clean continuing resolution that would immediately end the disastrous Republican shutdown of the government. And the only thing keeping that from happening is John Boehner's cowardly refusal to buck the tea party wing of his caucus.

So we double dare you. We double-dog dare you. In fact, we triple-dog dare you. Lick the frozen pole and prove your tongue won't stick.
