Ace, Fire up the Ewok: I Just Got a Boehner

You pronounce it however you want, but this is gold.

Senate Democrats announced that they would obstruct and attempts by the Republican majority in the House of Representatives to overturn Obamacare.

In turn, Speaker-Elect Boehner's office has issued their own terse reply.

Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Murray and Stabenow:

Thank you for reminding us – and the American people – of the backroom deal that you struck behind closed doors with 'Big Pharma,' resulting in bigger profits for the drug companies, and higher prescription drug costs for 33 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Part D, at a cost to the taxpayers of $42.6 billion.

The House is going to pass legislation to repeal that now. You’re welcome.

- Speaker-Designate John Boehner's Press Office

It's game on, folks, and if the incoming Speaker has the fortitude to stick to this sort of pro-American, anti-Obama message, it could spell even larger gains in the House and the collapse of the Democratic Senate in the 2012 elections.

I swear this is the best comeback since Brigadier General McAuliffe responded to a request for the surrender of Bastonge with "NUTS!"

I think it's pronounced Bay-ner, if you've been brought up in a heavily German city like Milwaukee as I was. But lots of trying-to-be-funny liberal columnists are going to make 'boner' jokes. Anyway, the guy is one 'tough apple' as my Dad used to say. And, as Neo says, his letter is one great comeback.
