The imperial Pelosi era is over. No more boozing cross-country plane-loads at our expense. No more strutting and bashing We the People with her gavel. No more imbecilic arrogance of we have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it.
She's still telling whoppers as she steps down.
Welcome Speaker Boehner.
Power Play has long observed he and his staff to be among the least cynical, most earnest of any on the Hill. It may seem contrived or cheesy to critics, but these folks actually believe in what their talking about.Welcome, at long last. This is the people's house.
Whatever the barriers Pelosi broke, John Boehner will certainly be the first brother of 11, German-Catholic, tavern keeper’s son from blue-collar Cincinnati to wield the gavel. Those roots are reflected in the people he has gathered around him and in their priorities.
