Outgoing House Speaker John Boehner hugs his successor Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. in the House Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015. Republicans rallied behind Ryan to elect him the House's 54th speaker on Thursday as a splintered GOP turned to the youthful but battle-tested lawmaker to mend its self-inflicted wounds and craft a conservative message to woo voters in next year's elections.

Comments

  1. Jeron says:

    Who is comforting whom? Romney must be kicking himself for having missed this triple hug opportunity.

  2. David in KC says:

    Babe, I got you, babe.

  3. Mu says:

    “Your tailor did a great job fixing that knife hole in the back”

  4. OldSouth says:

    Now remember–last time I get to tell you…the account number for your Cayman Islands account it 5867….Don’t screw this up for me and Nancy and get caught, ok? Then you’ll be the one crying.

    Remember what we did to Denny when he wandered off the farm…

  5. OzarkHillbilly says:

    Et tu, Brute?

  6. James Pearce says:

    Ugh. It’s like hugging an ashtray. I just hate getting that smell in my clothes.

    (The italicized portion is an actual quote from Paul Ryan about Boehner’s lingering cigarette smell.)

  7. jd says:

    “And remember Paul – never show any blue in your background.”

  8. David in KC says:

    Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur.

  9. David in KC says:

    What’s that smell, wild yam? That smells nice.

  10. al-Ameda says:

    John: “Tastes great.”
    Paul: “Less filling.”

  11. Pinky says:

    They cry until you burp them.

  12. CSK says:

    “Look at it this way, John. Now you can be on Dancing with the Stars.”

  13. DrDaveT says:

    Eventually, the Speakership was decided under Graeco-Roman rules…

  14. Gustopher says:

    “One word of advice — turn on safe search before you google ‘The Hastert Rule'”

  15. Gustopher says:

    “One more word of advice — if you wanted to just retire in place, sit back and sip some scotch, you could just have them vote on repealing ObamaCare every few hours. Or you could try to do anything else, like keep the government functioning or something, and just be guzzling cheap whiskey straight from the bottle.”

  16. John430 says:

    Boehner to Ryan: “If the chair fits, wear it.”

  17. Tillman says:

    Where I’m going, you can’t follow. What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Paul, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.

  18. Paul Hooson says:

    The passing on of the orange grove torch…

  19. dazedandconfused says:

    “I know it was you Paulo.”

  20. I could’ve shutdown the government one more time if I really tried.

  21. Andy says:

    Paul….that’t not the gavel….

  22. Hal_10000 says:

    “Right there. There where I have my hand. That’s where they’ll stab you in the back.”

  23. Hal_10000 says:

    “I know it was you, Paul. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!”

  24. Hal_10000 says:

    Oh, John. I wish I knew how to quit you.

  25. Paul Hooson says:

    “One word of warning Paul. I once rode the city bus to the capitol, and someone robbed the bus driver”.

    “Sounds terrible!”.

    “It was! They demanded exact change!”.

  26. Peterh says:

    @DrDaveT:
    was that a Dennis Hastert rule….

  27. RockThisTown says:

    Two slices of bread ready for a Pelosi sandwich.

  28. RockThisTown says:

    A House divided against itself can stand if it gets a hug.

  29. RockThisTown says:

    Climate change.
