John Boehner’s Drunken Crying Ruins NASA Ceremony (VIDEO)

by Kaia Mursi

Were you lucky enough to have a real, live astronaut visit your elementary school back when public schools still existed? Bet the kids were so so super excited!!! We definitely were, because, of course, even a low- to middle-tier astronaut is several orders of magnitude cooler than anyone who hasn’t been weightless in Outer Space. But did your classmates cry? Did they cry like the actual children they were? Hey, it’s okay! Crying was a developmentally appropriate response, according to science, probably! This, however, is not the case when the “child” is your Weeper of the House John Boehner.

Here’s how he embarrassed everyone this time:

His sniffles began during the speech, but it wasn’t until after House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) stepped down from the podium during a Wednesday ceremony at the Capitol that the bawling started.

Boehner was one of several Hill leaders who gave remarks at an event honoring astronauts John Glenn, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin with the Congressional Gold Medal. Congress approved the medal in July 2009 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

In Boehner’s defense, perhaps these American cosmonauts brought back with them some sort of moon glitter that makes a salty discharge leak copiously from the eye holes of everyone in their proximity? And if so, just who are they working for? AND WHY WON’T THE MEDIA REPORT ON THESE MANCHURIAN SPACE DRIFTERS?

An attendee at the ceremony said Boehner’s strong emotional reaction was startling.

“It was certainly a moving event, but seeing him sob and gasp for air was sort of off-putting,” said this attendee.

This attendee probably won’t be too happy about Boehner’s plans to go catatonic at next year’s ceremony.

Boehner really isn't anything other than a six year old girl.

tcaalaw November 18, 2011 at 11:25 am

I know six year old girls. Six year old girls are friends of mine. And, let me tell you, John Boehner is no six year old girl!

Wait, that didn't come out right….

prommie November 18, 2011 at 11:32 am

I enjoy the company of six year old girls. Am I sexually attracted to them? Umm, phumpher, no, no, of course I am not.

KathrynSane November 18, 2011 at 11:35 am

As a former six-year-old girl, I take offense to this statement.

MaxUdargo November 18, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Give him a break. John Boehner is just so powerfully moved by how beautiful John Boehner is when he talks about how great America is. John Boehner is his hero.

Barb November 18, 2011 at 11:20 am

He's got post partisan depression.

tihond November 18, 2011 at 11:20 am

It must have been Thursday. He was wearing his orange face.

prommie November 18, 2011 at 11:21 am

Buzz Aldrin should have just cold hauled-off and decked him, just for being a fucking pussy. No offense to any pussy-owners out there, but that Boehnor, he's a fucking pussy.

johnnyzhivago November 18, 2011 at 11:23 am

None taken (I own a number of house and barn pussies)

Lascauxcaveman November 18, 2011 at 11:38 am

My pussies would eat John Boehner for breakfast. And they're just kittens.

JerkCade November 18, 2011 at 11:41 am

I have turned to barn pussy when no other was available.

Rosie_Scenario November 18, 2011 at 11:51 am

Win.

Limeylizzie November 18, 2011 at 11:51 am

Win for filth.

prommie November 18, 2011 at 11:58 am

The best kind of win of all! Its what we are all searching for, you know, us men, we are all seeking a sweet, wholesome, pure girl-next-door, who is also cheerfully vile and filthy in the vilest way, and who laughs proudly while at it.

Herring_Burnit November 19, 2011 at 3:12 am

As my friend used to say, "I have more pussy on my mantelpiece than most straight men will EVER see."

FakaktaSouth November 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

And then Buzz should have turned around and grabbed the youngest legal chick in the room and kissed her dip-style while holding the American flag in his free hand. Cause Buzz is a playa AND hater of the bad kind of pussies.

prommie November 18, 2011 at 11:33 am

I have missed you and your brash bad-girl sense of humor! Of course you would appreciate the wonderfulness of Buzz Aldrin.

FakaktaSouth November 18, 2011 at 11:39 am

Buzz gives me great hope for my later years of debauchery – that there will be men who will still wanna-be-able to even play. Love love.

prommie November 18, 2011 at 12:03 pm

There's always the young ones, if your peers are getting "soft," so to speak.

prommie November 18, 2011 at 11:36 am

I could picture Buzz loudly humming the Star-Spangled Banner while receiving a sloppy, enthusiastic blowjob. Hmm, that doesn't sound right, its not that I "picture" Buzz getting blown, damn, now I am trying hard not to picture that, but anyway, you know what I mean.

Baconzgood November 18, 2011 at 11:38 am

Don't hate the playa, hate the game.

Nesnora November 18, 2011 at 12:30 pm

He's more like a soft, shriveled, been-in-the-bath-too-long, balding Scrotum. Vulnerable, pasty and completely ridiculous looking when brought out in the sun.

Herring_Burnit November 19, 2011 at 3:15 am

That's almost enough to put me off fucking anyone who owns one a them. Almost.

"Boehner’s plans to go catatonic at next year’s ceremony."
He's been that way since he became speaker.

chicken_thief November 18, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Drunk and passed out = catatonic?

Tommmcattt November 18, 2011 at 11:21 am

How doth the little crocodile
Improve upon his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!

Harry Reid should have punched him in the throat, that'll give him something to cry about.

Yeah! Throat punching time!

prommie November 18, 2011 at 11:51 am

That would be dangerous, punching Boehnor in the throat, that could seriously injure Grover Norquist's cock.

MANCHURIAN SPACE DRIFTERS? Who writes this stuff – brilliant!

Ancient_Hacker November 18, 2011 at 11:25 am

Crying is what happens when you're so internally conflicted– when you know that all the bright young smiling faces are each inheriting like $33,000 in national debt, and you're the guy responsible for making that worse.

Kakkeltje November 18, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Are you implying that the man actually has a conscience?

Trannysurprise November 18, 2011 at 11:27 am

He reminds me of my uncle, Al Cohaulik. Except my uncle wasn't an orange vomit clown.

What an impeccable description. Orange vomit clown. Yes, of course.

Congress approved the medal in July 2009 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Christ on a pork rind! It took Congress over two years to give four dudes a medal. At this rate, we'll finally get a jobs bill sometime around 2086.

DaRooster November 18, 2011 at 11:46 am

And a whopping 14 jobs it'll be…

HedonismBot November 18, 2011 at 12:43 pm

At that point, we won't need them anymore. And our descendents will decide they much prefer living in a Mad Max-like hellhole to going back to the old two-party system.

Terry November 18, 2011 at 11:28 am

Doesn't Boehner realize that John Glenn is a big old Democrat, a friend of Robert F. Kennedy, and thus probably a secret hippie socialist?

Infrogmation November 19, 2011 at 1:18 pm

That's why Boehner was crying! Grief over all the money NASA stole from American millionaires to spread socialism into outer space!

chascates November 18, 2011 at 11:28 am

He's just bipolar.

actor212 November 18, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Chichikovovich November 18, 2011 at 12:56 pm

He has two penises?

chascates November 18, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Yes, he's a dickhead in addition to the regular apparatus.

OccupytheDashboard November 18, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Too bad we can't put him in a bipolar orbit.

EatsBabyDingos November 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

It's not his fault. He watched "Old Yeller" and "Bambi" right before the ceremony.

Joshua Norton November 18, 2011 at 11:38 am

That can't be it. As an NRA fearing rupug, he thinks "Old Yeller" had it coming.

widestanceshakedown November 18, 2011 at 11:42 am

I once paid a man to speak, just to watch him cry.

Lascauxcaveman November 18, 2011 at 11:43 am

Heh. Throw in "It's a Wonderful Life" and "The Muppet Christmas Carol" and I'd be bawling right along with him.

jodyleek November 18, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Nah. Obviously they've never seen some drunk fool when they slip into "I luv you *hic* guysh" mode after their 10th beer. Usually followed by crying and then a bar room brawl.

It's strange that he weeps while speaking about how it's part of the American makeup to serve something greater than oneself — maybe it's because he's being mentally slapped with a wet noodle by Ayn Rand when he says this that makes him cry; maybe it's the idea that the thing he's serving is his own shallow self-interest and the collective greed of the robber barons who've fucked up all the rest of his constituents that gets to him; or maybe he's just such a schmaltz-loving, trite, shallower-than-a-Hallmark-card peabrain that he actually believes he's doing something momentous and a part of history that won't be repudiated for generations. Yeah, I'm going with that last one.

Chichikovovich November 18, 2011 at 1:02 pm

That's putting it mildly. If Nancy Pelosi were caught on film with a single tear in the corner of her eye under any circumstances, the right would immediately stop referring to her by any label but "Princess Weepy" and the clip (closeup of the eyes magnified) would be put on constant rotation on Fox until the heat death of the universe.

GregComlish November 18, 2011 at 11:58 am

Does the House speaker literally not have at least one image specialist on his team? Or does he just not listen to them? Any idiot can see that being chronically associated with weeping is a major liability. Crying *once* might be seen as a positive, especially for a Republican who are often perceived as cold. A few tears could be spared at the conference where you resign due to some Craigslist/Prostitute/Gay/Shemale/Congressional Page/Airport Bathroom scandal. But at this point it just seems like we have a man in a position of power who isn't able to control his emotions.

The astronaut incident was entirely predictable and avoidable. Nobody would have recommended Boehner for the job. Isn't the political machine supposed to prevent these sorts of train wrecks? Who broke the political machine?

actor212 November 18, 2011 at 11:59 am

Wait, I couldn't hear the audio well. Was he crying because he realized he could never be an astronaut?

Really?????

SorosBot November 18, 2011 at 12:01 pm

I'm sure Boehner can control his emotions – when he's sober. Which he never is.

freakishlywrong November 18, 2011 at 11:58 am

If I had the approval rating this assclown and his fellow assholes had, I'd probably sob as well.

He's channeling Jimmy Swaggart.

WhatTheHeck November 18, 2011 at 12:01 pm

I think Boehner celebrated Communion several times before the speech.
Those little wine glasses are really handy. You could hide a few in your coat pocket.

Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

Seriously, what is wrong with this fellow? Brain damage of some kind, probably alcohol related or the result of an undiagnosed stroke? He's probably a heavy smoker, and they have terrible circulatory issues late in life, sometimes. The thing that pisses me off is that his infirmity isn't physically painful to him. It's most devastating feature is that it tortures people who have to watch him speak the most.

Don't care much for now nearly-defunct "the space program," but must point out that my fellow graduate of the Agricultural Training Institute in West Lafayette, IN (whatever his challenges as a writer of words that would forever) never once used his immense fame to make money.

We all love Louis Armstrong.

Boehner. He's got the wrong stuff.

PuckStopsHere November 18, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Would have voted "no" on NASA appropriations if he'd been in congress in early 1960's. 'Nuff sed.

Dok-cupy Everything November 18, 2011 at 12:36 pm

To be fair, I cried watching the last Shuttle mission lift off, much like I cried watching the first one in 1981. But I'm a geek, not the Speaker of the House, and it was in the privacy of my own home.

Congressional Gold Medals. Lovely swag! Thank you for creating a couple of jobs in China you snivelling, drunken, douche chugging, impotent cry baby.

GorzoTheMighty November 18, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Ground Control to Speaker Boehner. Quit your fracking crying. Sheesh

OneDollarJuana November 18, 2011 at 12:47 pm

John Boehner’s Drunken Crying Ruins NASA every Ceremony.

I'd be embarrassed for him if he wasn't such an inept, hateful dick. So. I'm not.

BarackMyWorld November 18, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Congress approved the medal in July 2009 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

It took them over 2 years to actually give them the medals? Did they order them from Goldline or something?

Mojopo November 18, 2011 at 12:57 pm

I can abide a dewy eyeball because astronauts are awesome, but I get gaggingly disgusted by this pussified bag of goo. He didn't go to the moon! In fact, his party has been cutting support to our space program. A smart person once told me that people who cry inappropriately and draw attention to themselves are immature people who are trying to acquire an association to an event (or person) that they don't deserve and did not earn.

If Ed Muskie had been a Republican, he'd have been fucking president.

MLite November 18, 2011 at 1:11 pm

I think he cries because secretly he realizes that people like him are the reason this country is unable to do anything hard like land on the moon ever again. If he had been Speaker when JFK had declared we would land on the moon within a decade, he would have given a rebuttal speech calling it too expensive and Socialist. I don't think Boehner is an evil ideologue like Cantor, but he is a schmuck.

AlaskaGrrl November 18, 2011 at 1:12 pm

What a pussy. Probably his "time of the month". Bring back Pelosi. We need a real woman in charge.

JimNauseam November 18, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Everything about the man screams "Statesman". And then it cries and screams some more.

Salacious Crumb November 18, 2011 at 1:17 pm

He was just upset that Tang makes a horrible mixer for Gin.

Gleem_McShineys November 18, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Wait, could that explain his coloration?

proudgrampa November 18, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Scary. How many heartbeats away is he from the presidency?

Pres.Libunatic November 18, 2011 at 1:36 pm

Fucking asshole. If NASA proposed a new Apollo-style space project that employed the 400,000 people that Boner gets all choked up over at around 2:12, his TeaPublicans would scream about Soshalizm and stuff like that – and as a compromise we would end up with an unmanned probe to take photos of Phobos and Deimos or something shitty like that. So much for American Exceptionalism.

Soylent Green November 18, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Ground Control to Major Whiner: Your eyes are red. There's something wrong?

crybabyboehner November 18, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Tearing up because somebody passed gas, that's all.

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 18, 2011 at 2:31 pm

This is a non-story, as everyone knows that Boehner was just crying because he found out there was not an open bar at the function.

datateday November 19, 2011 at 12:47 am

This oughta do it, John Boehner:

Now cry. Cry. CRY LIKE THE LITTLE BABY YOU ARE!!!!

Limeylizzie November 18, 2011 at 12:02 pm

I am such a fan of filth, plus English accent , I am fucking awesome!

prommie November 18, 2011 at 12:10 pm

As you are well aware, to us yanks, even the lowliest cockney is mistaken as something refined and sophisticated, but yes, yes indeed, there is nothing much sexier, to many amurrican men, than filth spoken with an English accent. My very first secretary, when I was a young lawyer, just hatched, was an English lady about twice my age, I loved when she would get angry and start cursing in her beautiful accent, "fucking bloody cocksuckers" and such. Yes, I am sure you are awesome, if you can do that.

Chichikovovich November 18, 2011 at 12:10 pm

If you went into the dominatrix trade you'd have half the Tories in Parliament lining up for your services. (Though some of them would ask you to wear a Margaret Thatcher mask, which might be a bit too much. Gotta have limits.)

FakaktaSouth November 18, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Well of course. But I have come to find there is much to be said for the wisdom derived from experience.
I am also going to try and incorporate the word sloppy into my discourse as much as possible today. Just to keep you with me at all times.

prommie November 18, 2011 at 12:13 pm

You have so much enthusiasm!

FakaktaSouth November 18, 2011 at 12:16 pm

You have no idea!

prommie November 18, 2011 at 12:18 pm

I'll try to imagine, at all times.

poncho_pilot November 18, 2011 at 12:42 pm

"and start cursing in her beautiful accent, 'fucking bloody cocksuckers…'"

you didn't get any video of that did you? that's a kind of porn i could get down with.

Soylent Green November 19, 2011 at 11:23 pm

yeah – looks like a wingman for that drunken bastard when trying to pick up chicks.
