Papa John Failed Them
1. Now see? If they’d ordered Godfather’s Pizza, they would have gotten the job done cuz Papa John [Boehner] failed them. There’s a joke in there somewhere.
2. I heard a GOP Congressman on the radio say tonight, if they still had pork to pass around and not just stale pizza, things would never have come to this … though it would have cost the taxpayers about another $2 billion.
3. Did you see what happened a few seconds into Reid’s press conference ripping the House bill tonight? One of the press phone/recorders on the lectern starting ringing. While Reid and Schumer fumbled with it, a reporter quipped: “Pizza’s ready!”
4. Certainly, this is my lasting image of a 112th Congress that delivered as much.

Boehner’s version of a plan to end the debt limit impasse was scheduled to be brought to a vote on the floor, but was delayed while the Speaker met with members of the House.)
