      The Surreal World: Capitol Hill

      Maureen Dowd
      NY Times Op-Ed: 1/6/2013

      IT was hard not to feel sorry for John Boehner, wounded, weepy, mercilessly
      flogged by Chris Christie. The miserable-looking Boehner was even scaring
      small children.

      After squeaking out re-election as House speaker when crazed conservatives
      rebelled on Thursday, Boehner summoned gruff bonhomie as he presided at a
      ceremonial swearing-in for House members.

      But some of the kids posing for pictures seemed a little alarmed at
      BoehnerÂ’s awkward pats, brusque small talk and barked orders when someone
      posed the wrong way.
