Boehner Spokesman’s Theory on Topping Netanyahu’s Speech

Only way to top Netanyahu speech would be a Taylor Swift/Katy Perry concert at MSG wearing white-and-gold and black-and-blue dresses with dancing sharks, llamas..

Tickets to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s speech at Congress were apparently in high demand. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) put it in the most Jewish of terms possible — telling The New York Times, “the tickets are hotter than fresh latkes.”

But John Boehner‘s office took hyperbole to a whole new level this morning, when Michael Steel, Boehner’s press secretary, told the Times in a statement:

“If Taylor Swift and Katy Perry did a joint concert at Madison Square Garden wearing white-and-gold and black-and-blue dresses, accompanied by dancing sharks and llamas, that’s the only way you’d have a tougher ticket.”

Sign me up for tickets to that…
