John Boehner: a Man of Few Words
December 11, 2009

I wouldn't presume to diagnose from afar (where's Bill Frist when you need him?), but it certainly seems as though House Minority Leader John Boehner has been struck down with some peculiar form of palilalia.   In a WaPo ope-ed (or whatever you call the columns on that weird, new "Washington FORUM" page) of only 604 words, Boehner repeats the phrase "job-killing" not twice, not thrice, but four time in slamming the Dems' economic agenda. (That's once every 150 words, for those keeping track at home.) I'll admit the phrase has a nice ring.
