'Who's Crying Now': A Teary Playlist for House Speaker Boehner

Posted: Updated:

True confession: I cry a lot -- you know, at sad movies, at my kids' school graduations, or watching Fox News. So I come here today not to attack our new House Speaker John Boehner, but rather to support him bearing tissues and tunes. Okay, maybe just the tunes -- hey, those tissues cost money and we're all cutting budgets, right? So John Boy, crank out these tunes on your best house speakers and pull yourself together, man. You've got a big country to save or screw up.
