OK, what's the big deal with Boehner crying? Why am I getting all these tweets with nasty quips about him crying like it's the most important political event of the month? I remember when Hillary Clinton teared up during her campaign because of a bout of self-pity, her ratings shot up. So what's up with making fun of Boehner? I like dumping on his politics as much as the next person, but his crying has nothing to do with it. Some people cry more easily than others. It's a physiological thing, which has nothing to do with gender. It is kind of nasty to use it to reinforce silly and offensive gender stereotypes.
