John Boehner Could Not Be Less Interested in Last Night’s Debate


Among the many people who elected not to watch last night’s poorly attended Republican primary debate, the first of the 2012 campaign season, was, tellingly, Speaker of the House John Boehner. Instead, CBS News found him doing exactly what you imagine Boehner does on a nightly basis — he was at a Morton’s Steakhouse “enjoying a bottle of Cabernet — and a couple of cigarettes.” Regarding the debate, Boehner said he’d “read about it tomorrow,” but probably he won’t even read about it.
