Common Man John Boehner Doesn’t Have To Bother With Security Pat-Downs
House Speaker-to-be John Boehner bragged about how he would fly commercial, a not-so-subtle dig at Nancy Pelosi about the the phony story that she demanded big aircraft. But Boehner isn’t going to be bothered with the treatment we mere mortals receive, as he is able to avoid the pat-down.
