Steny Hoyer Is Now 'Boss Hoyer'

The really, really excellent "journalists" at Human Events have just found out that Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) will testify tomorrow before the select committee investigating last August's "stolen vote" on the House floor.

Let's forget about the fact that Hoyer's appearance before the select committee has been scheduled for a couple weeks, and that the House is spending $450,000 of taxpayers' money investigating something that should have taken a couple of hours - at most - to clear up. What I really liked about this "story" by Jed Babbin (an unsuccessful Republican congresssional candidate and former undersecretary of Defense under the first President Bush) is his use of the name "Boss Hoyer" to describe the majority leader.

Hoyer will now officially go by the name "Boss Hoyer." All Hoyer press conferences will be retitled "Boss Hoyer Says." The Maryland Democrat will have to dress in an all-white suit with a big white hat, smoke a huge "cee-gar," and concoct crazy schemes to get those damn Duke boys. Or Republicans. Or whomever.

Update - I should have "hat tipped" a former colleague of mine who just got married on this one. So here you go, former colleague; you've been hat tipped.
