1. He then added, "but this is really serious and not a PR stunt" and then burped gin.

3. You know how a responsible journalist would cover that?

Strangely enough, nobody at any of the popular media outlets knows either. Because a responsible journalist would evince extreme skepticism toward anyone who threatened a lawsuit without being able to specify a cause of action. Instead, we're treated to breathless, screaming headlines about how Boehner is going to sue the President. Sue, sue, sue!

Boehner now doesn't have to do one more goddam thing. The water has been carried, and certain members of the public will drink deeply to yammer on about how the president got all sued and stuff. It will soon pass into accepted political lore, and the likes of David Gregory, George Stephanopolous and Chris Matthews will all nod sagely when the canard waddles out and quacks.

4. He's waiting for his instructions...

He is incapable of making a call like that. He's waiting for his billionaire to tell him what to do. Either way he goes it's a win for the dems.

7. Today, 3 millions Americans unemployment benefits ran out...

But Republicans will take those taxpayers money and pursue a ridiculous lawsuit.

8. "somebody says they're going to sue somebody for something"

Non-news. Now for a Non-joke: what's worse than biting into an apple and discovering a worm?
Answer: the Holocaust.
