There's Something Very Wrong with John Boehner

I think the Speaker has some kind of hormonal imbalance.

WASHINGTON -- 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.

Really, a guy doesn't cry this often -- especially in public -- unless the estrogen is a little to plentiful. Or unless he's on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
