On the eve of the historic vote coming this week, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is pushing items in their "store" of gifts and clothing items mocking Boehner as the nation's "Weeper in Chief," a reference to his plight as boss of a divided Republican caucus and the ease at which the sensitive Ohio lawmaker gives up tears when he gets emotional.
In the featured sale category is a "Crying Boehner Can Koozie" for $7.95. The description says, "Want to see John Boehner cry? Buy this union made can koozie today to help us take Speaker Boehner's gavel."
For $24.95 there's a "Weeper of the House T-Shirt." That description reads: "In 2012, we're going to give this guy something to really cry about. This 100% cotton T-shirt is Union-made in the USA."
