Is it not funny to anyone else that John Boehner's entire family cries just as much as he does? Right before he first accepted the awkwardly oversized gavel from Speaker Pelosi (she references that as his gavel "of choice" in an even more awkward presentation), he whips out the handkerchief to wipe his tears. This of course is standard Boehner; what was even better was that C-SPAN pans over to his family, ALL OF WHOM are crying into their handkerchiefs.
Speaking of badass/awesomeness, Pelosi read out all the Dem accomplishments publicly before passing over the reins to the new speaker. I admire her.
