WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Today, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) released the following holiday letter to the American people:
Dear American People:
It's Speaker Boehner here, writing my first and last ever holiday letter to you. Why am I doing this after all of these years, you might ask? Well, I won't mince words. I've started drinking a little early this Christmas.
Yes, I'm sitting here in my man-cave, panelled in mahogany the color of me, doing a rack of Canadian Club shooters and smoking my way through a carton of Lucky Strikes as if they were the last Twinkies in creation. If my chief of staff knew that I was writing to you while I was this polluted, he'd shit a phone book. But guess what? I don't fucking care anymore.
You see, this will be my last Christmas as Speaker of the House, all because a cabal of Tea Party miscreants in the House of Representatives doesn't think I'm a ginormous enough asshole for their taste. Who's more to their liking? Virginia's own Eric Cantor. As a waiter might say at an all-you-can-eat shit buffet, "Excellent choice." How odious is Eric Cantor? Let me put it this way: when we have to speak to the press, I actually prefer to stand next to Mitch McConnell.
What will life be like under Speaker of the House Eric Cantor? Well, he's the guy who recommended cuts in disaster funding just hours after tornadoes hit Joplin, Missouri. Nice. And it was his "never met a dick-measuring contest I didn't like" pathology that helped create last year's debt-ceiling crisis. You can't put a price tag on a performance like that. Well, actually you can: it cost the country nineteen billion dollars. Starting to miss me already, aren't you? Fuck you.
So have a very Eric Cantor Christmas, America, and as that smug four-eyed sociopath drives the entire nation off the cliff, don't say I didn't warn you. Now leave me alone, God damn you. Damn you all to hell.
