The Lighter Side of John Boehner
Often-curmudgeonly House Speaker John Boehner is co-starring in a video released from his office with a wind-up monkey gifted to him by his staff. They bought the toy in 2001 after Boehner joked in an interview that there are days when he feels like a wind-up toy because of his busy schedule. "The Monkey in the Room" shows him talking to three little girls, "That's what I do all day! Every 15, 30, minutes, they come in and wind me up, and I do my thing."
