I don't like society without some customs and limits on profanity. As for the last sentence, I don't think Boehner is necessarily proud of what he said. I think Conservatives are feeling beaten down right now and kind of cheer the epithet if for no other reason than it shows some humanity in those guys in congress.
The problem Tex, is that he was heard repeating it to Ried after Reid said "what", and then Boehner bragged about saying it to his collegues. I think it's pretty sad to think that telling someone to fuck himself is viewed as a gotcha or a good move. As I said before it just makes him look like a loser.

I think the line, "Go Fuck Yourself" is quite possibly the absolute best line in the English language. Three simple words lets the deliverer show the deliveree exactly how he or she feels without mincing words. There's no mystery left at the end of your conversation.....

Boehner only told Reid what we all wanted to.

Good for him!

Your absolutly correct....when you tell someone to go fuck themselves, there is no mystery at the end of the conversation as to who won the debate....undoubtedly the one who was told to go fuck himself, because the speaker of the line obviously has nothing more inteligent to say.

If we can't be smart enuff to carry on a debate without sinking to that level of word play, we have lost.

What debate? There was no debate, they made eye contact and Boehner said Go Fuck Yourself.... not much of a debate there if you ask me.

Just like if you offered to buy me a beer, I'd probably say go fuck yourself.

It has nothing to do with PC.

It has to do with class and statesmanship. If you reach a level that you represent the people in a position that he does. I would want him to represent me with some class and dignity.

I choos the high road, the road least traveled, and the hard right decision over the easy wrong quick fix.

If we allow our leaders to act like thugs in a brawl, we are asking too little of them.

Your entire explanation is based on PC.

This was not a public announcement. This was not during a debate. This was not during negotiations. As Ponch said, it was a passing in the hall. You guys really have girly emotions.

Absolutely! I think the right should adopt that phrase much like the left has adopted 'racist' as it's mantra. That way whenever a lefty calls a righty a 'racist', the righty could answer "go fuck yourself" and the debate would once again be at a point of stasis.
