Tie one on with John Boehner

Say what you want about the Speaker of the House, John Boehner's sartorial sense is unrivaled in the House or the Senate. In a world chock full of plain and drab red power ties, the congressman has brought the pastel palette in neck ware to the fore like nobody's business.

The other day I saw a picture of him in a striped double windsor that looked just like Beechnut gum. With his baby blue eyes (usually weeping), a lavender shirt and the appropriate cravat, the Republican from Ohio looks like the world's nattiest used car salesman. And of course, the bearer of a monster tan that would make George Hamilton blush. Equally at home at the 19th hole and the halls of power, a toast to our resplendent Speaker of the House.

Did you devote as much time to Nancy P's cosmetic surgery or wardrobe?
