You can't make this stuff up.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has released a video titled, "The Monkey in the Room." It stars the speaker and a windup toy monkey.


Watch it here.

The backstory was covered this morning in The Washington Post; you can read that here. The short version is the monkey was a gag gift from his staff, and the speaker has kept it prominently on display in his office.

Give Boehner credit. A good laugh is invaluable sometimes. Especially in politics.
