Deace Hammers Boehner Over ‘Scam’ Comments

You know who is really upset about Speaker of the House John Boehner’s claim that all the talk of impeaching President Obama is a “scam” started by the Democraats? All those right-wingers who have been demanding that Obama be impeached. Wingnut radio show host Steve Deace, you’re up:

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) told The Washington Times in a story, that has about 3,000 more comments (almost all of them negative) than actual words, that pursuing impeachment against the most lawless president in history was “a scam started by Democrats.”

Interesting, I guess all the Tea Party leaders I’ve had on my nationally syndicated radio show calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment the past 16 months were tools of “a scam started by Democrats,” and they didn’t even know it.

I guess former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is “a scam started by Democrats” and she didn’t know it, either.

I guess the majority of Republicans who want to see Obama impeached for his now-daily constitutional crises are also “a scam started by Democrats.”

I guess respected conservative thinker Andrew McCarthy, author of the new book “Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment” is a “scam started by Democrats.”

Funny, that’s what I’ve been saying too. I hate agreeing with a moron like Deace, but facts are facts. Boehner is telling a ridiculous lie and it’s obvious to pretty much everyone.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    It’s obvious: Boehner is secretly a Democrat, and is leading this as a “false flag” operation.

    In other words, once again the clowns who think that they’re brilliant political strategists have lost control over their useful idiots? Wow, this is starting to become a pattern.

  • John Pieret

    I guess former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is “a scam started by Democrats”

    Well, she is certainly a scammer and the Democrats certainly enjoyed the havoc she wrought on the McCain campaign but I guess we have to give credit where credit is due and admit she is a a scam started by Republicans.

    I’ve been unable to figure out Bohner’s “reasoning” behind what he said. The reaction of people like Deace was completely predictable. Did Bohner think he was going to get away with this somehow? Is he really that stupid?

    #1 Reginald: Your obvious false flag post is fooling no one.

    To be fair — I doubt Sarah knows whether water is wet.

    ArtK, #5: Is he really that stupid?

    He may be stupid, but I don’t think this was as stupid as it may seem. Seeing how their useful idiots have swallowed any and all the crap they’ve been fed for so long, I think they had at least conceivable to expect that a “we’ve always been at war with Eurasia” gambit would work.

    Frankly, I’m as surprised as Boehner.

    “now-daily constitutional crises”

    God, I’m tired of these idiots and their rhetoric. The sad thing is, it’s working.

    Yeah, but you can never be sure. So blame the Democrats anyway.

    I don’t agree. I’m confident a lot of Obama-haters will take one of these positions without realizing at that moment they also hold a contrary position that doesn’t happen to be the convenient argument at that same moment. They learn this from their religion.

    Pay no attention to comment #6, it is obvious that the Trilateral Commission has infiltrated Ed’s blog.

    That stupid thing we were trying to do, it was the other guys’ idea.

    Yeah, right.

  • busterggi

    Everyone knows that Obama is secretly leading the Republican party, everyone far enough right anyways.

    My not so inner twelve year old gets a lot more enjoyment from this story by simply pronouncing their names “Douchy” and “Boner”.

    You know, as god intended.

    If she didn’t already exist, Democrats should have invented her.
